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.

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.

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.

For the new and uneducated, how is this related to crossfit?

Couldn't the same thing have happened to anyone doing snatches?

Also, I don't think I want to learn snatches anymore.

i think one of the probs is that doing timed lifts for reps tends to ingrain sloppy form, so when shit goes wrong it goes very wrong

no because crossfit encourages doing snatches and shit as quickly as possible with little regard for form you dumb fucking bitch

>>35976407
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.

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.

Dips? You mean tennis elbow? How would you snap your spine doing dips?

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.
>>
>>35977130
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.
>>
>>35977074
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?

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
