I hope this man never tries this again. This guy is clearly not focused on safety. Isn’t that bench badly designed? If you want a safe one the stoppers should continue so that there’s barely a gap and the bar and weights can’t slip and not be blocked by the safety rack.
The guards should be connected to the back of the bench so that there’s definitely no gap and even disregarding that, the problem here is that the bench flexed when he hit it and the bar slipped between, which is doubly shoddy design. Bench press more weight than you can lift, without a spotter? That’s a bold move.
