You might be wondering what exactly the picture above is. Well it's a home work out device that attaches to your door frame (obviously huh?)--It's for pull ups and it has these straps that came with it for abs (these straps are for your arms to go through, this is an important part of this story to remember for later on!!!). This device doesn't seem very sturdy but trust me it is (when done correctly)...this was one of Zach's Christmas presents from his mom, he loves it and tries to use it every night...me on the other hand, I can't pull myself up if my life depended on it...my arms are super weak!
Well...the other night Zach started doing pull ups...just like any normal night, except this night he decided to 'experiment'....I can't really say that I know what was going through Zach's head at the time, but I can pretend it went something like this....
"Hmmmm....I wonder if I put my 'legs' through these straps if I could hang upside down and do reverse sit ups....hmmmm, let me try this, although it doesn't look safe, I think I can do it....."
About this time as all these wonderful thoughts are going through his head......WHAM!!!!!!!
What happened you ask!?!?!!?!? My ever so clever husband crashed, straight on his back...his grand idea of sticking his LEGS in the slots where his ARMS are supposed to go didn't work well for him!!!
