If you’re looking for evidence suggesting that a spotter really would help your workout routine, you might want to check out this powerlifter.

After giving the weights a go, he stands upright, gets a little wobbly, then goes crashing down.

As you could imagine, completely going slack and falling onto hard metal weights isn’t a great way to fall down.

There we go. I don’t know what the recovery time is for a broken spine, but I have to imagine he won’t be lifting that amount of weight ever again.

Ouch. I guess, in the wrong circumstances, simply fainting can be a really, really dangerous act.
