The other day I was doing squats in my new power rack. I’m not built for squats but I have been enjoying them this past month or so.
As I descend to the bottom I hear a large RIP.
Unfortunately, this has happened before. I know that my boxers had just split in the back side. Oh well. I do another set or two until I’m paying attention to the boxers more than I am to squatting.
I go back inside remove the now ruined boxers and put my pants back on. Going commando.
Next set of squats. Shouldn’t be any problem without those boxers interfering. I descend. RIP.
Well, this is a first. I may have ripped my underwear before but never my pants. Curse my big butt. Maybe I need to stop doing squats, deadlifts and swings altogether.
No one was home so I continued the set even with my bare ass hanging out.
Of course, after that I switched into stretchy shorts and continued. Don’t think I’ll ever squat in none stretchy material again.
Do you have some hilarious gym stories. Write them below?
Also check out this past story of a couple more funny gym stories.
Yup, ripped my pants a few times in the gym. It was a few years back, but I was doing sumo squats in boxers, and some cotton shorts. Lets say, I was able to catch it before everyone got a glimpse of my sweet ass at the gym.
I was swing my kettlebell in the back yard wearing shorts, no shirt when my older brother came over with a friend of his from work. His friend looked interested in what I was doing. My guess was he’d never seen a kettlebell before. Well, they went into the house and I finished the set, so I set the bell down and noticed a tear running from the waistline down to the leg in the front of my shorts!!
I detect a theme developing here. It seems like this is a common occurrence…
I blew out the bottoms of my pants when demoing heavy kettlebell swings to a class of about 15 students. These were pants I could kick in without trouble. HA! Luckily I had a pair of grappling shorts in my bag. I’ve noticed a lot of clothes nowadays seem to be designed for people with no leg muscles or glutes. Now I have a nice roomy pair of athletic pants from Under Armour that I wear when teaching, no worries!
I was doing a leg workout with a guy that weighed about 290lbs, with numbers in the range of S495,B405,D575.
We were on deadlifts and I was trying to pull 405,which just months ago my max was 455.
Well,a 3 week layoff in there screwed me pretty good apparently because I strained so much trying to stand up all the way and lock out that I farted really loud. ‘Course I was all ready red-faced,so I dont think that could have gone worse there. At least Shit didnt happen,just his loud stinky cousin.
Glad you only showed a pic of your jeans and not a pic with you IN the jeans 🙂 Funny story
I was flirting with a girl in kickboxing class while we were doing calisthenics, when we got to jogging in place, well thats when the farts started O_o
I was jogging with my weighted vest, and when i stopped before going back i did a few moves like plank, stepping up on a step, and squats.
At one point, i heard a big rip sound and sure enough, my pants were ripped hugely on my backside.
I jogged back without problem (with extra A/C there), and if anybody noticed i never heard about it.
At least i was wearing underwear, so it is not worse than one of those guys with the baggy jeans falling to their knees…
But(t) yeah, rip happens! 🙂
