    Maybe so, but It's just such an avoidable incident that should not happen.

    It was his time to go, irrespective what you believe or don't believe.

    Stupid comment? That's a matter of opinion. When it's my time to go, I go. When it's time for my 3 and half year old daughter to go, she goes.

    That's what I believe, and that belief gives me great comfort. I do not expect you to believe what I believe or how and why I believe it, but the least you can do is not be judgmental about it as you always are. Show some respect man, as respect is reciprocal, and disrespect can sometimes get you into trouble when you least expect it.

    Peace.

    What it tells me is the spotter had no chance of reacting to a catastrophic failure because people are largely unreliable and that when I train alone and bench from stands with no safeties that the risk matrix says death is a possibility.

    I have often contemplated my demise and while I always assumed it would come from being crushed under a car or murdered by a scumbag, its time I considered my other hobbies potential to cause proper harm.

    Perhaps I shall rethink my position on benching in its current form.

    yes, that is exactly how I understood it.

    sorry for my own crude interpretation.

    I remember once a 100kg bar rolled on my head while I was talking before a bench press set as bar rolled onto my face. yes, I was stupid for not concentrating, but it would have been a most unfortunate event if I had died. Fate, no just a very rare accident that should never have happened.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    Tell me, if you understand.
    5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
    Who stretched a measuring line across it?
    6 On what were its footings set,
    or who laid its cornerstone—
    7 while the morning stars sang together
    and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?8 “Who shut up the sea behind doors
    when it burst forth from the womb,
    9 when I made the clouds its garment
    and wrapped it in thick darkness,
    10 when I fixed limits for it
    and set its doors and bars in place,
    11 when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
    here is where your proud waves halt’?

    12 “Have you ever given orders to the morning,
    or shown the dawn its place,
    13 that it might take the earth by the edges
    and shake the wicked out of it?
    14 The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;
    its features stand out like those of a garment.
    15 The wicked are denied their light,
    and their upraised arm is broken.

    16 “Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea
    or walked in the recesses of the deep?
    17 Have the gates of death been shown to you?
    Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?
    18 Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?
    Tell me, if you know all this.
