This will remind you of the importance of lifting with good form.
1. Big Bach Squatting Accident
2. Janos Baranyai – Beijing Olympics 2008
Janos Baranyai was trying to snatch 326 pounds(148 kg)
in his third lift in the men’s 77-kg division, when his elbow popped out of socket. No longer able to support the weight of the barbell, his right forearm bent backward in a full dislocation. After a two-year recovery and training period, Baranyai returned to international competitive weightlifting, participating both in the 2010 European Championships in Minsk and the 2010 World Championships in Antalya.
3. 305 lb. Bench Press Gone Wrong
I was very lucky: no broken bones, no internal injuries, just a badly bruised chest. It was NOT the spotter’s fault, it was my fault. He let go quickly because that’s what I told him to do. He wasn’t expecting me to take the bar off the rack so quickly. Also, yes, I was using a dangerous grip. I used the thumbs-under grip for many years with never so much as a “close call”.
