    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      Seriously? The guy effing died and you're going to say "he [asked] for it" because of his grip?
      Also, I can't tell from the video how he was gripping it -- what was he doing?

        he had his thumb wrapped around the bar, it was just too heavy for him so it slipped right out of his hands

            Can't believe what it does to his chest, it's amazing that he even got up afterwards.

              I was wondering how long it wouls take somebody to notice that.
              In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                  Yeah, clearly I meant I was wondering how long it would take somebody to notice my mistake. Duh.

                    I don't want to watch the video - what did the spotters do wrong or what should they have done that they didn't? And how much weight was this guy lifting? How tragic.

                    Started PB on Monday, June 4. I'm focusing on my health in 2012, including taking natural supplements, zumba and strength training, regular church attendance and studying the Bible, spending time with good friends, and reading more. I want to see what health milestones I can achieve this year!

                      one of the spotters was just standing around looking everywhere but they guy he was supposed to keep an eye on

                      it was nothing gory, outwardly. he dropped the bar and it fell on him, nearly touched his spine then bounded off and he flew up like his ass was on fire

                      the description on the vid said he later died at the hospital and that the bar had broken ribs and tore his diaphragm
                      beautiful
                      yeah you are

                            This is obviously a tragic accident. Grip was fine, I don't even blame the spotters... "the best spotter in the world can't react quickly enough to save you from a dropped bar" - Mark Rippetoe Starting Strength

                              Agreed. Why are we looking to blame someone. This was just a sad and tragic accident. The job of the spotters is to help you re-rack or if you get stuck, not to catch a dropped bar.

                              Gives me the heeby jeebies just thinking about it.
