While attempting to land three heavy plates during a recent gym stream, Twitch star Mizkif dropped the weight onto his chest, which nearly spelled disaster for the streamer who could have injured him seriously.

Weightlifting is obviously a form of training that should be done in moderation and caution. The dangers of costly mistakes can realistically lead to devastating injuries or worse, especially when attempting to lift very heavy numbers.

In Mizkif’s case, the streamer was incredibly lucky to escape what could have been a hugely damaging accident. The event happened during his workout live stream on January 9, where he, alongside Esfand and a few others, were getting a workout pump together on Twitch.

Mizkif attempted a PR, or personal best, of 315 pounds. It’s about 143 kilograms. Initially, this was supposed to be a one-rep maximum, essentially testing Mizkif’s maximum strength. The start of the lift started off pretty strong. With a nice place from Esfand, which provides a solid takeoff, Mizkif managed to complete a rep, but with a slight touch from Esfand.

For anyone curious, within powerlifting rules, that slight touch, along with Mizkif’s lack of a break down his lift, invalidates the PR. But other than that, by the standards of a casual lifter, the rep is relatively solid and seemingly in control.

Mizkif obviously should have settled for the single rep and taken on the new PR, especially since that was supposed to be his goal initially. Instead, Mizkif pushed for a second rep, during which his hands suddenly dropped the weight – which then crashed straight into his chest.

It’s incredibly lucky that the weight was dropped to the bottom of the bench rather than the top, minimizing the gravitational impact of the weights. Had he fallen from the top, he almost certainly broke a bone or two, and very realistically could have ended up in hospital with a punctured organ.

Fortunately, his friends were there to save him from the precarious situation before long, taking the weight off his chest.

Despite the obvious lack of control due to the weight loss, Mizkif quickly stood up and claimed, “I could have done two,” arguing that he was doing just fine.

The streamer has been in great shape lately and is even considering opening his own gym.
