Bench Press Fail (Video)

This guy is lucky to be alive!

Near Death Bench Press Accident (Bar Dropped on Chest)

This was a 132.5kg attempt after my last warm up (120kg x 1). I felt like the bar was out of position above me due to a possibly incorrect lift-off and I could feel my left arm was going to collapse under it. I’m strong enough to hold it AND to press it (I have completed the rep (132.5kg x 1) about 30 minutes later by unracking it myself.). I’m not sure what happened but it’s awesome to be alive.

I’m not looking forward to reading the comments on this.
