Joe Wicks has revealed he pulled his hamstring during Friday’s energetic PE With Joe workout as he attempted to do the splits.
The Body Coach star’s first week of the rebooted YouTube classes have so far proved very dramatic after fans were left in hysterics when Joe was heard farting during a live session.
Following Friday’s class, Joe took to Instagram to admit he’d suffered an agonising injury after trying to nail a daring move while dancing around.
Sharing a clip of him dressed in a Buzz Lightyear costume, Joe showed the brutal moment he dropped down to the floor and told fans: “This is gonna cost me.”
The star opened his legs and dropped right down to the floor before crying out in shock.
Joe then appeared to struggle to get back up and limped around as he clutched his left thigh in pain.
The YouTuber admitted he’d been too over-confident and had never attempting to the flexible feat before.
“Twanged my hammy didn’t I. I believe in my head that I can do things I can’t, I believed in my head I could do the full splits,” he said.
It comes after the star’s ‘fart gate’ exercise class on Monday became his most watched video on YouTube of all time.
Joe, who set up his channel in 2013, was left red-faced after not realising he’d broke wind while streaming live to thousands across the world.
Reflecting on the incident, Joe said that despite him posting more than 10,000 workouts and stacking up four million followers the clip of him farting is by far the most engaged with content he has ever produced.
He even suggested he would fart more often if it meant he could acquire such popular videos.
“All that work – the recipes in my kitchen, all the holidays when I was filming, when I was injured and just putting so much content up – and it took a fart to become the most engaged post ever.
“So what I’ve learnt is fart more, let it out, open up to it and just be honest.”
The Body Coach, who is well-known for his Lean in 15 series, added that he didn’t know about the awkward gaffe until he saw an article emerge online.
But Joe laughed it off and has since gone back and edited the sound out of his video, which is available on his YouTube channel.
He told Mark: “I tell you what, some of the comments are hilarious! I’ve got to be honest, I’ve gone back to the video and got my mate to edit it out because I can’t have that living on there forever.”
Joe is helping out the nation and recently resumed his live workouts after the UK went back into a lockdown earlier this month.
He previously raised a whopping £580,000 for the NHS through ad-sense from his last series of live workouts in July.
