I think any competent spotter would be ready for a dump, unless the bar slips off the back.
Is it possible to dump 1000 lbs
Seems to me under that kind of weight if something goes wrong, and you become off balance, the weight is going to do as it pleases. Most likely crushing you, or at least, if you're lucky some snapage.
Can not envision "just dumping it". That would require some serious shoulder strength, at least...
Obviously, a perspective from a measly squatter
