While attempting to lift an extremely heavy-looking barbell, the 20-year-old athlete lost her balance and the weights started rolling toward the front of the gym before crashing through a glass window.

“Happy f–king Monday,” Rogers perfectly captioned an Instagram video that caught the moment.

Rogers was left to sweep up the broken glass with a broom and dust pan.

“OKAYYYY so today was actually a really productive snatch day before I decided to destroy everything…. And before @camargo_oly wanted to kill me, but it’s fine I’m fine everything’s fine #GETSOME,” she added alongside another Instagram video of herself successfully completing the move.

Rogers was surprised to find that her snafu went viral. “Break records?? Who cares. Break a window?? NEWS WORTHY. WORLD GOES CRAZY. What a time to be alive,” she tweeted on Tuesday, March 29.

In a lengthy Facebook post on Thursday, the athlete defended herself and added that “it’s not that unusual to have weightlifting fails.”
