This has been posted many times... (Once by myself I think :p)

There's some brutal ****ups in there... While I've never powerlifted I'd expect spotters to be ready to handle some of those dropped presses and such.

Some fo them are crazy, like the guys throwing the squat bar OVER their head.. OUCH!!! I can understand dropping it behind you but there's one where the guy bends forwards and pushes it over his head.. crazy.

I'd imagine spotters probably arent a huge amount of use if you drop the weight. Pressing 400lbs is hard enough.. I dont know many people who could CATCH it!
