BEFORE YOU LIFT CLEAR THE LIFTING AREA.

There should be nothing on the platform except you and the bar-make sure the lifting area is free of obstructions such as extra bars, plates, or collars. If you miss a lift, any extra equipment can make it harder to safely escape the falling bar. All it takes is one misstep-or trip-to seriously injure yourself.

Case in point: One of the best CrossFitters in the country overdid it at a CrossFit competition. He missed the lift and fell, landing against a stack of plates with his bar falling right onto him. He broke his spine and was paralyzed from the waist down. So give yourself ample room to escape a lift if needed.

CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT.

First off, check your bar for damage and, if applicable, make sure the sleeves are screwed in tight. On some less-expensive models, the sleeves are held on by a screw, or screws. The screws should be securely fastened. You'll also need to make sure you have the same size, weight, and number of plates on each side (i. e, if you have two 25-pound weights on the left side, you need two 25-pound weights on the right side rather than one 50-pound plate). If the number of plates is uneven, this tends to make the bar lean to the side with more plates due to the offset center of gravity, increasing the risk of dropping the bar.

Also check for cracks in the plates. If a plate is cracked and you drop the bar, the defective plate may damage the floor/ platform and the bar. A cracked plate could possibly come apart while you're lifting it, causing serious injury. Examine the collars to ensure that they’re undamaged and are properly securing the plates. Use collars rated for Olympic weightlifting and always use the same type on either side of the bar. Don't use a spring collar on one side and a clamp collar on the other-it's not smart to mix safety equipment.
