    There was an animated gif posted on here where a weight lifter fell after his elbow popper or something. What was the story behind that ?

    Not the gif you are referring to, but of the thread subject.

    Remember a few years back when the knee of some of these guys popped out? I was shocked. I didn't know things like that are even possible.

    Im over here now
    that wouldnt have done anything. it dropped it so fast and the lift was so heavy that im sure no spotter(s) would have been able to react or do anything in time.
