    well not quite dropped. I wasn't benching max weight or anything, but I'm coming off a pretty bad cold, and on the 8th rep I lost it. Didn't have a spotter because I don't ever need one for that weight. Worst feeling ever.:wtc:

    I had to dump the plates off the bar the other day doing incline BP. I just couldn't get it up. The first 4 reps were flawless and easy to get up, but on the 5th i just got stuck. There was no hope, and no one else in the gym.

    I know. I quit putting clamps on like the workout before that one, because I watched the exact same thing happen to another guy on the flat bench. He just couldn't get it up, and couldn't dump it with the clamps. I had to help him out a little.

    what pissed me off was that NO ONE helped me, i was sitting there with the god damn bar on my chest, and had to roll itdown to my crotch, curl it a little and slip out from under to dump the weights. i was pissed off after that, so the rest of the workout went decent

    That sucks. A long time ago I was pinned by only 195. It was light enough that I rolled it to my abs and sat up but there was a guy working out in front of me and he saw me get pinned in the mirrors. He dropped his dbs and ran over to help...I freed myself by then and it was quite embarassing, but I don't see how anyone in the gym didn't try to help you.

    heh, When I first started working out I put the 45's on each side of the bench.... OOOO 135!!!! Man, I tried so hard but I eventually gave up and it was on my chest. This kid I didn't really like helped me get it off my chest. :sad2:

    Same thing happened to me. I don't think it was much weight but I couldn't finish the set. After holding the weight a bit off my chest and looking around, I moved it towards my crotch, did a situp, stood up and set it down.

    I haven't been pinned yet, because I lift like a bitch on the bar and usually use dbs. I have helped a guy out who got stuck and he thanked me. I acted like it was no big thing so as not to embarass the poor guy. I'd have expected someone to do the same if it happened to me
