      Today I thought I would push my self even further on the bench press and I did but on my last rep I couldn't get the bar back onto the rack and this man came running over to help me, but I felt a bit stupid for putting weight that I couldn't lift and now I feel a little embarrassed and felt a little emotional not sure why ( a woman thing maybe). anyone else been in the situation in the gym?

      think we all have at somepoint.

      nothing to feel stupid about if it was your final rep. its when the bar is being lifted off your chest with no reps completed that you should feel stupid lol

      The roll of shame (rolling the bar down your chest and onto your legs because your not strong enough to lift it)

      Happened me once, but it was late night and so i was alone ha, so ashamed!

      All jokes aside, this is why i use dumbells instead of barbell when doing chest alone

      Go work pushing to your limits though

      I've been stuck under the bar so many times I've lost count... I see it as I'm pushing myself to my limit and there's no shame in that
