This guy's attempting to lift a hefty bar stacked with 225 pounds to reach a personal max...with no spotter. When he's unable to bring the bar back up, it falls on his neck and begins choking him. After a few agonizing seconds, he's able to wiggle himself free. Phew! Close calls don't get much closer than that, so we're glad this guy's OK.  

Moving on to the correct way to lift weights, certified functional strength coach Austin Alexander is showing us how it's done. With safety measures put into place, he's reaching his personal best by lifting an impressive 300 pounds. Man, we're exhausted just watching this guy.
