Seven Dangerous Weight Lifting Accidents

    December 8, 2010 at 6:00 am

    I had lifted weights for years before I finally worked up the courage to do squats with a free bar, mostly because my 9th grade health teacher told my class a story about a horrible squatting accident. No, it wasn’t a shart or even an ass tulip, but a poor kid who fell forward and had all his teeth smashed out. Is that worse than an ass tulip? Hmmm, maybe not.

    In any event, throwing around a ton of weight is a dangerous thing to do.  One minor slip or lapse in concentration, and you could find yourself wearing a diaper for the rest of your adult life.  After the jump, take a look at some horrible yet morbidly hilarious videos of weightlifters who probably wish they hadn’t tried to lift so much weight.

    Stomach Pain

    I can’t even fathom what that must have done to the tummy right there.

    Blue Balls

    I’m just miffed at how quiet this video is.


    I’m amazed that the bar doesn’t just kill these people.  But clearly she’s 100% OK.

    World Championship Fail

    Ri Kyong Suk.  That’s all I have to say.   The announcing in this one is priceless.

    Leg Breaking Sucks

    This video is not for the faint of heart.

    Extreme Accident

    Just relax and lay back.

    Bench Press Accident

    I can’t even imagine how painful this must have been.

      I never liked this kind of sports. I love weight lifting but this is something else.
