Video: Man nearly breaks his neck in the gym after a lift goes wrong

Jaysus.

There's a reason why people go to the gym with a friend or get help from a personal trainer and it's to avoid making any stupid mistakes like this man did.

On the one hand, he聽deserves some credit for trying an impressive lift but on the other one, he's fortunate to have not broken his neck.

Here's hoping that he brings a spotter or lifts the appropriate weights on his next visit.

Take a look.
