Brandon Curry had a really close call recently after a cable machine fell on him during what appeared to be some overhead cable tricep extensions. Well, he crashed forward into the accessory racks and was quickly attended too by a few other gym-goers.
And thankfully, he only suffered from a small knot on his head and a scraped thumb as he described in the Instagram video he posted afterward which you can watch below.
“Life will let you know, God will let you know, nothing is promised. Always be grateful, always give your best effort because you never know, tomorrow is not promised for anybody,” Curry explained.
He said that he was able to finish the workout and is ok which is very good news as he is, after all, one of the strong favorites going into the 2019 Olympia; which is just over a week from now.
Here’s what Curry wrote on his Instagram…
“Yesterday I had a scary/ embarrassing moment during training
Yes, just yesterday during my final exercise, I pull a machine over on top of myself. Once the stack got up so high it made the machine too heavy, as I was performing overhead triceps extensions.
Thank God I walked away uninjured just a bump and scrap. Life is uncertain. Things can be going great one second and not so great the other.
God is always in control of it all and what can been seen as bad is often for our good. We can’t allow ourselves to get so focus on life we forget about the life giver.”
Brandon Curry came in fifth at the 2018 Olympia which was his best placing at the show and he also won the 2019 Arnold Classic which was a first for him. And because of his phenomenal progress, he is a front runner for the 2019 Olympia. And thankfully, he escaped with no serious injuries ahead of the Olympia because like Curry said in the video:
“I was protected from something that could have been a lot worse“.
