As a lifter, spotters can save your career and prevent further injury. You put a lot of trust into these guys to literally catch you when you fall.
As a spotter, you have to already be mentally prepared to act when things go south, literally and figuratively. Be on the same page as the other spotters and have a technique of how to take over in a way that prevents injury to both the lifter AND you.
My boy @_legendofthetank
took this first 850 for a ride last week and rolled backwards. Of course, he came back and smoked it. But in this moment, we all took appropriate action and it couldn’t have gone smoother.
Spotting is SUPER important in this sport. Avoiding injury is crucial to everyone. It’s always comforting to have guys you can trust around you when things go awry.
Be cautious and be ready... Or just don’t fail at all 🤷🏻♂️🤘🏽 Big squat @_legendofthetank
with 850 attempt (he got it right after this).
