    dont get me wrong, I completely agree! My only point was that if you are at a gym and there is a staff member that says no, it's pretty lame IMO. And also that there are the occasions when, at least anyone I know, could use a spotter. Most of the time, I am just fine without one, but sometimes it's necessary


  2. I have no problem spotting anybody at the gym. Better to be safe then sorry. If you end up with weight crashing down on you you're going to be wishing you asked for that spot. However you definitely dont need to go to failure on bench. Feel free to leave 1 or 2 reps in the tank

    Oh I agree with that too! Very lame of a staff member to turn you down for that. You;d think they'd rather do that than most of the crap they have to do at a gym.

  4. I'm definitely not trying to say if you have a spotter your a jackass but you shouldn't rely on one every time you're in the gym. Also ever think about what happens when you fail on that last rep and your spotter doesn't catch it soon enough?? You need to learn when to hang up the weights is all I'm getting at.
