Hi, At the gym i go to the bicep curl machine is very popular and the arms pads are all torn up. I was lifting hard and my arms scratched up against the pads to the point were i was bleeding... a lot. Could i get hiv this way if some 1 eles bleed on this machine like me? It wouldnt be hard to bleed from it due to its all torn up.

thanks for your time.
