nothing personal but i hate people like you...i hate when people ask for spotters most of the people that have approached me before say "Hey can you do me a favor bro" and i say no im busy and pick up something and do something or just turn the volume on the ipod up so i cant hear them and then they walk away...i hate spotting people...i have used spotters before but that was when i lifted with my buddy since that has stopped i just dont use them even on my last max which was like a week and a half ago i didnt have a spotter at all...to each his own..?


hahaha I hate people like you!   Grin

My husband was out of the gym for three months during my bench press training, and thank goodness random people were nice enough to spot me...even if I had to explain to them what a negative is, or how to spot me, or scream OKAY TAKE IT!! really loud when the bar is crushing my throat Roll Eyes.

you're one of those people that give gyms a bad name. i usually ask for a spot, and i damn sure give anyone a spot if they ask me. are you so self-absorbed that you can't spend about 30 seconds giving someone a spot?


quoting magoo cuz we were on the same wavelength.   Grin

no im not self absorbed but just being honest and what makes you think that you can just go up to random strangers and ask them for help?? or that they want to or willing to help you in the slightest? i just dont like to do it thats all i have done it before but that was mainly when i was lifting with my buddy...sorry everybody...just telling you the truth

i'm what we in the biz call a "friendly and helpful person". if you need a spot, i'll give you one. want to borrow my straps? go ahead. need a little chalk? i got plenty of extra. want to try on my belt for that last set of squats? go for it, the thing's great if it fits ya. wondering why i do an exercise the way i do? ask away, just let me finish my set and catch my breath first.

your type piss me off greatly. how important do you think you are that helping a fellow lifter is such an inconvenience? are you training for the mr olympia or WSM?

I dont see the big deal. Someone needs a spot, give them one. Its pretty easy and takes about 30secs.

I always keep an eye out for people when they bench. Some people load up the bar and you can just tell that their unsure if they can do it or not. They just dont look confident about it.
