Re: Tips on Dumping Weight

Duck and run?

Seriously though, if you have any kind of spatial awareness you can usually tell when and which direction a lift is going to fail, and then guide it that way while getting your body in the opposite direction.

The disasters usually come when somebody is fighting for a lift they shouldn't be or not focusing on the lift. It's all well and good when maxing out to struggle a little to stand a lift up, but fighting for lockout overhead to me is not worth the chance of injury, not to mention it wouldn't really count for a competition lift, if you care at all about that kind of thing on your technique.
