As for safety well Offroad gave a good answer but your reply is valid in this case - this program does not advocate failure, stopping short with a rep or two in the tank - the load is heavy enough and the fatigue component sufficient that there's no need to grind things out.
However, sh#t happens and sometimes you can overestimate your abilites - compound that with a bad day and the weight which had you leaving a couple reps in the tank last week, has you wishing there was someone else around to help!
Once you start moving heavy weights pretty much every movement has an associated risk, the bench press more so because the bar is hovering above your chest/neck/head and there's nowehre to bail. Only you can decide if your particular circumstances prohibit your ability to bench in safety and your safety is paramount.
Thanks. When I'm pushing my limits then I'll usually grab another person or failing that, one of the trainers. But I can't ask a trainer to hang around for all of my workout, and it seemed like this program may make having spotters more of a necessity. I guess I'll have to wait until its released and see...
Seeing that this workout has so much hype attached to it, will there be a special place for those of us who choose to adopt it to place our results? That would be neat!
Obviously, most of us are concerned. But not being pushy, when can we expect HCT-12 to come out?
I am beginer and just started lifting and I have been waiting for this program to come out and was wondering if it would be good to try since i am over weight and still working out nutritional kinks. I want to gain muscule and loose weight. Would u recomend this program for me or should I put more of my time into cardio and light weight lifting.

Truly looking forward to this coming out. I'm hoping try something new over the summer. Currently, I have about 40 minutes to workout during school 4 days a week in an overly crowded compact little gym. This summer, I'm going to be dedicating a lot more time to working out, and will be giving this a shot all summer long. Thank you to all that have been working on this.
