Would you agree then that the spotter should have known what to do and how they were able to assist in this scenario? And if they didn't know, they should be informed post haste, so that they know how to handle this should it happen again.

Of course, there is the fact that the situation that occurred wasn't expected to ever occur, which is fully understandable, so neither party were prepared.

Glad that you are ok. And yes I am sure that would have been you if you had dumped her

Never dump a weight on purpose. That is how people get seriously hurt. Hang in there and do the best you can. Glad you didn't get hurt.
Dump on purpose? No. But if the choices are potential injury or dump, I'm going to dump.

I think any competent spotter would be ready for a dump, unless the bar slips off the back.

I totally agree that neither me nor my spotter we expecting or even prepared for this. I think going forward this is something we're gonna have to pay attention to and be on stand-by when the bar is being racked. Spotter really didn't know to assist in such an unexpected situation.

As I'm typing this the muscles at the back of my neck a bit tight from where the bar clipped me.

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
