There's that video going around of the fella walking out a Squat, who's ankle goes as well.

That's a new form of yoga.

A few months back, some poster in bodybuilding.com forums mentioned that he broke his arm trying to squat - apparently he was squatting 250ish lbs, and didnt exactly put the bar back in the jay hooks while racking and getting it off his back. Result - 250 lbs of torsional force snapped the forearm.

Unfortunate though this may be, freak accidents do occur in weightlifting (as in any other physical sport).

Yep. Injury is a part of the game.

Freak accidents occur in life, generally, but people love nothing more than to attribute all ails to weight lifting...if they can. Gym rat: "I've got flu"...Street person: "weight lifting will do that, it's not good for you!"


That does look nasty though :eek:
