As strongmen, there is a reason we tell everyone not to attempt the feats we do without proper instruction. Sometimes, even for those of us who are trained, bad things happened.
I was bending a piece of steel that was labeled HOT rolled ( meaning it will bend then stay where you put it) but I believe it was actually COLD rolled (which tends to have a very springy quality) and it slipped from may hand and sprang back, hit me in the forehead, knocked me to my knees and split me open.
14 stitches (7 sub, 7 external). I bled like it was WRESTLEMANIA. Thankfully I have been practicing Iron Body Chi Kung. Thankfully it wasn’t my eye or my mouth.
Don’t try this at home…..
