The most often asked question by anyone we speak to is, "what if I drop a weight on my foot?", and our answer is, unless you're wearing steal toe boots, it's going to hurt and you're probably going to do some damage.
It just so happens that our good friend Bruce at THRIVE in PA unfortunately had a weight drop on his foot while wearing traditional training footwear. As you can see from the picture above, it doesn't look like there was any added protection against this very painful incident.
Bruce was kind enough to share some takeaways as well as his story with us in the video below. In conclusion, no matter what kind of training footwear you are rocking in the gym, you are always at risk.
- I had on shoes at the time of incident
- I was very angry with myself
- with or w/o shoes, equal damage
- don't drop heavy things on feet
Keep ditching your shoes and build your base!
