    Unhappy Dropped 195lb barbell on my chest yesterday...

    I was doing 195 on flat bench, which is a weight I can do 6 times at this point. I don't really know exactly what happened, but on the 4th rep my left wrist decided to roll forward causing me to release the weight, causing the barbell to come crashing down on my chest. Suprisingly it didn't hurt too much, it just shook me up a little bit and then I went on to do another set with 205. I did 4 reps and on each one I felt some kind of pressure to the left of the middle of my chest. I decided to end my workout there, which pissed me off because I was feeling really strong that day and I'm pretty sure I would have reached a new max.

    I went to the doctor to get it checked out and he said it should feel better in a couple of days and to just take a break from working out.

    Looking back on it, it's pretty scary because I could have dropped the bar on my neck and it would have been a wrap for me. I'm scared to even bench again because now I'm starting to work with really heavy weights and don't know what the hell caused me to drop the bar on myself.

    Has this ever happened to anyone else?

    Sounds like you should never bench again unless you have a very good spotter or better yet do your bench presses inside of a power cage. This hasn't ever happened to me, but you can't be the first and only one.

    I feel your pain..sort of. My shoulder dislocated benching 165lbish and dropped on my chest. I didn't expect it, but for some reason it didn't scare me nearly as much as the shoulder dislocation. I wonder if it could be adrenaline running through your body so fast it doesn't hurt.

    Did the doc do a xray of your chest to verify nothing was broken or cracked?

    I know you are scared to bench again, but you have to get over your fear. Start light (after resting to fix the pain, of course) and work your way back up. Incorporate a better wrist/forearm strengthening program, or perhaps switch to DBs? DBs felt amazing on my shoulders compared to the bar.

    I once saw a guy drop 405 pounds on his chest after his spotter lost control of the bar as he was locking out. The guy was back the next day doing squats.

    I ALWAYS use the proper grip with my thumbs wrapped around the bar, which is one of the reasons that this was so strange to me. I've been working out for almost 2 years and I've never had anything like that happen. And as for the wrist strengthening, I suppose that could help but I've never had a problem gripping and stabilizing heavy weight before so I don't quite think that's what it was. I appreciate everyones input though.

    I would suggest doing dumbbell bench presses in the interim. They will build a great deal of power and ultimately improve your barbell bench press.

    Do dumbbells for a few weeks until you can build your confidence up again. You should have a spotter at any weight with barbell benching. You can do alot of damage even with the smallest amounts of weight if something goes wrong.

    It could be that you were just a little distracted that day. I know if I try to work out with any sort of weights and I'm tired that morning (I get up really early to work out) or stressed about something and my form may falter (twisted a knee that way).

    My best advice would be definitely start benching again, but only with a good spotter and only if you feel focused and determined. If you have any doubts, your grip and form may be off, so just believe you can do it! (Sounds cheesy, but it works!)

    Red face Same here...

    Had this happen to me last week. I had 215 on with those fat gripz. I must've had the grip turned the wrong way and it slipped off the bar enough for me to lose my handle and ::spalunk:: right on my sternum. Knocked the wind out of me something fierce and shook me up pretty good. Pretty sure I bruised a rib. Still tender and of course my deadlift day last night didn't help matters. I felt like such a shmuck, but at least I know I'm not the only one. Power rack, here I come. Or maybe I need to find some friends, ha.

    Negative

    I was doing negatives with a friend the other day. Went rather high for myself (225). We're the same weight and height. He was spotting me and I did a pretty decent negative dropped the last inch. Then we were stuck. I pretty much panicked

    Should bench inside of a cage and put the bars on the sides right above your chest that way you can bench without a spotter and if you drop it, the bar stops a couple of inches above you.

    what the guy above said, bench is a power rack/squat rack (whatever terminology you prefer) & put the side bars on so if you cant hold it, it lands on them & not you
    thats how i do it & lost count of how many times its saved me

    Might want to get a brace on that wrist. Spotters are great but sounds like one might not catch that if it happens too fast.

    One of the (many) reasons I dont barbell bench press. Yeah I know i can set up in a power rack with safety bars but its way less complicated (and doesnt hurt my shoulders) to do dumbell or cable chest work.

    Red face Dropped the bar also on my chest at 280

    Hey, thanks for your post, today I also dropped 280 lb on my chest. Funny I was googling to see if anybody ever had that. Weight was very well controlled... It is not a spotter issue...I have been using even heavier weights before....not sure what happened but I am in pain now....hope this is not serious and will go away in couple days....thanks for your post

    Hello guys

    How long did it take for the pain to go completely when the barbell fell on your chest?

    That's really unknowable, probably a couple of weeks unless there is other damage (heart, aorta, lungs, sternum, etc). Look for the vid of the Russian who died from dropping a heavy BP on his chest. He lived initially but then died later from internal injuries.
