This Guy Didn't Make The Lift

What the fuck happened?

It seems like that should be impossible with thumbs wrapped around the bar like they’re supposed to be.

And, why were the two skinny dudes spotting him, while the two built guys watched. Seemed like he wanted that to happen. The two guys at the end of the bar had no chance of stopping that.

Using straps while benching may not be a bad idea after all.

Ouch…

and why was it titled weightlifting? He was bench pressing…

Koing

Which brings me to my next point, kids:

You may think the thumbless grip makes you look “cool” to your friends, but always, always wrap your thumb around the bar.

Yes, please listen. I know a guy who’s benching 400lbs plus pounds with a thumbless grip. The day will come when he’ll rely on that thumb and it wont’ be there…Bad Times…

Hell, I even know guys who actualy OPEN their hands while lifting. Frickin idiots.
