Remember the ginger bearded Crossfit dude who got paralyzed because he dropped weight on his back?
This is him. He's opened his own gym recently.
Daily reminder that Crossfit is the devil. Keep this thread bumped for the safety of others.
Here's a better pov. What happened is that they left some plates right behind him and the bar bounced back into his spine and rekt him. He didn't drop the bar directly on him
>In order for me to go to the bathroom (shit), my nurse needs to insert a suppository, and digitally stimulate my rectum into going. I'm forced into sitting, strapped to a commode for one to two hours, while my nurse manually stimulates, checks, and rechecks my colon, every ten to twenty minutes, depending on how quickly I go (depends on amount, and consistency). Although I can't feel the digital stimulation directly, it creates AD symptoms. The process is both physically, and emotionally taxing. Every time my nurse checks me, it sends a chill up my spine, creates goosebumps, sweating, and discomfort (sometimes accompanied by chest pressure and nausea). On top of which, my overall condition and constant stimulation, has created chronic hemorrhoids.
not even once brehs
It wasn't even his fault. Some people put some plates there that the bar balanced off of.
It's really pretty retarded to attribute what was actually a freak accident to "dangerous crossfit". Crossfit definitely has higher injury rates than a lot of other weightlifting disciplines, but this isn't due to crossfit. It was just unfortunate.
Youre wrong, crossfag
>he moved slightly backward and -- instead of "bailing" (ditching the bar and getting out of the way, as he'd done countless times before) -- dropped the bar on his upper spine with grotesque force, severing his spinal cord
The thing I find heinous is these analyses of how it totally had nothing to do with crossfit started cropping up immediately after his massive pay off went through.
It's clear what happened in the video but they have to go for an Orwellian rewrite of history.
Said the quadriplegic.
>joined 2 cross fit gyms in the past year

>the ones that are good are washed out athletes from other sports
>plus roiding girls
AMRAP Snatchs after sprinting or whatever else "harcore" crossfit bullshit IS retarded.
He didn't just picked up the bar for a snatch like a normal person
You're doing near-max doubles and triples in a fatigued state (right after cock pushups or running in circles or whatever the fuck they have you do as a part of their parcour regimen), with imperfect form (execution > form) and under time pressure (again, execution > form).
This is essentially an environment that you would facilitate if you WANTED people to hurt themselves.
Lifting weights is relatively safe in comparison to other sports but Crossfit takes that advantage (focus on controlling the weight and form - sometimes even enforced by lights on the platform during a competition) out of the equation with their shit.
Crossfit is just a desaster in most licensed gyms.
/fit/ hasn't changed one bit in two years
Keep up the good fight you silly shits feels like it's only been a day
Nurse here, and this is good times. Surprised they didn't put an ostomy in if he's having this much consistent constipation/impaction though.
Usually people don't ask for one, but shit. Hue. Easier to let him shit in a bag that he can be taught to change himself.
>you dumb fucking bitch
calm the fuck down nigga
i just asked a question fuck
That shit is scary. Which of these lifts am I most likely to go to snap city with?
High Bar Squats
My commercial gym gave me a free PT lesson, and I said I wanted to learn power cleans. The PT didn't even tell me to jump or coach me much at all. I'm not attempting Oly lifts again unless I have to or someone with proper form can show me how.
Allegedly this guy can squat 500lbs too. He looked pretty jacked, but I bet it wouldn't be a proper squat to depth.
You can fail one and have heavy ass weight falling directly to your face.
Is no joke, to me is by far the scariest one, I only bench inside a power cage or just stick to dumbbells.
With the rest most of the time if you fail one is just a lot of noise and some shame.
Yeah I do it in a power rack. One time I was lifting by myself at the university gym and I was benching and missed a rep and I was going to do the roll of shame but these two guys ran over and picked it up. Yes much shame.
I haven't done bench press since an old fighting injury where my elbow was bent the wrong way. Occasionally it fails at heavy weight without warning and does not want to extend further than where it's at. Can I replace my flat bench with incline bench?
even it isn't if you bench in the power rack. safety catch right underneath your chest, so it'll fall on you and push the ribcage down just a very small bit, maybe bruising you bad
He dropped the bar on his back, plain and simple.
See pic, that bar is bending from impacting his back on the way down.
>Here's a better pov
Can't see shit cap'n.
Theres nothing wrong with failing a squat but there is if you decided to do it outside a rack and you drop the weight like a fucking moron
Never squat outside of a safety cage, or at least do them with bumper plates on a lifting platform - preferably with someone there to come down with you if it's heavy work
Elliot Rodgers looks just like my gf's brother. He has the same woman-hating-but-requires-women-to-validate-him complex too. He's borderline autistic and probably a red-piller. I have my popcorn ready for when the fireworks start.
