How not to train.....

Well today, I made a spectacular tit of myself...right in front of a forum member lol....
Was chest press - I got a spot for my heavy sets, and didn't actually count the number of reps, just until I couldn't do any more. Was fine for the first heavy set, but on the second, about 6 reps in, my left wrist gave way and the dumbbell just missed my face ...said spotter (I am a total twunt I don't even know his name, I think it's Gary ) grabbed it before I had my eye out but then I overcompensated for the other one and it fell on my chest...luckily there's plenty of padding but it still hit my sternum with a thump
This is my lesson to EAT ENOUGH. I felt bloody weak today
Anyway, many thanks to my gallant spotter and I'll eat more next time.....
Warm up 10 mins
Dumbbell bench press
26kg 2x failure and droppage
Incline barbell press
40kg 3x8 (wrist still felt a bit weak)
BW 2x5 (wrist still felt iffy )
Reverse one arm pressdowns
Think I will be incorporating some forearm work from now on - don't want that happening again!!! Seems to be a problem due to having small wrists - if the dumbbells aren't balanced perfectly, it's all bad......
