I'm not 100% sure (maybe Mr Flett can fill us in on his return) but I think that is what ended up happening with some of the spotters.


Yes, a couple of experienced Aussies from Brisbane jumped in and helped on the 74s and 83s classes. Would like to say a lot more but can't as I'm sure you'll appreciate.

That video was absolutely terrible. Very poor show.

all it would take is some jerk boxes extending backwards from the uprights and a changing of the ipf rules to allow dumping of the bar in special circumstances. lifters do their jerk box height and rack height at the same time.

Jerk boxes would obscure the view of the side referees surely?

You could probably make a metal frame to achieve the same purpose without much obstruction of view. Then just throw a few sheets of plywood/matting on top to absorb the impact.

Why aren't power racks used for the smaller weights?

First time I saw this video. At 145 into the video, something like this happened to me. But more twist on the bar applied. I had to go to the hospital. Why no mono lift or safety strap thingydoodle used in a serious comp? This video is disturbing to me. Leg extensions. Sit there. Hog the machine so others can get a set. Watch the scenery. No eyeball popping spine spinning out of control?

one reason i'm not a fan of 100% raw squats once weights get big.
with knee wraps, you don't see fails like that where they just get crumpled, you going to get to a half squat before it goes tits up,
lot easier to spot a fail from back like that than trying to zercher someone out the hole. only wayne could do that Grin


he would probably hit it for a few reps then complain about the chaffe.


I enjoyed these posts Grin
