TheNegation, I completely agree with you, I workout alone and I've failed before but I do what you described. It is a little shocking on the nerves when you know it aint going back up though...

I like to keep a spotter in case of injury not because I fear failure. I've seen guys injure a tendon or ligiment and have the weight come down on them. With the weight I do that could mean death. Always use a spotter.

yes I am. but I also walk at 215 LBS.

even with you guys working with 150 do you have any idea how much damage that can do when it drops a foot down onto your chest? at a minimum you're talking about broken ribs.

Oh of course I agree that if you can you should use a spotter, but for a lot of us it is simply impractical. I won't go over what I can handle for three reps without a spotter, but other than that I just use common sense and warm up. Hasn't hurt me so far.

Plus, a spotter won't stop the weight injuring you. He can help afterwards but thats it. If I'm at the gym or at home there will be someone around to do that anyway, it'll just take them a few more seconds.

maybe a crappy spotter can't prevent your injury.

when spotting your hands should be under the weight but not making contact. if they start to drop you should be grabbing it immediately.

you can always use a spotter. I highly recommend having a training partner.

That is just way too cautious man sorry. You mean to tell me that your spotter follows that routine for every rep and every set? Lolz.

I've seen a torn muscle lead to 6 months laying in a hospital bed. There's no such thing as too cautious. My training partner and I work together (he does a set I do a set he does a set I do a set). works good for me and sets a consistent pace.

Uh, I have lifted with a partner before hah.

Anyway, I'm not disagreeing with you, spotters are good. But it's not true that you can always get a spotter. I used to work out at home all the time, spotters were not available.
