    best spot you've ever had?

    I know mine came at the gym with my friend bill. I was doing incline presses, only like 185 I think, but sitll a lot for me at the time. So anyway I'm bangin out reps and I start to struggle on the last one. I wait for the spot to come, and then I hear him say 'do you want to die today?' he was just kidding..probably, but still, when you put it like that...I forced up that last rep and racked the weight, and I still think that's the best spot I've ever had.

    my spotter once spat on me I was very motivated to hit the weight get up and then stomp his ass but once I hit the weight I was happy I had a new max and forgot about it.

    My training partner put my balls in a clamp and said 'two more or your little hairy friends get it'. I did another 12 reps.


    This is a strange thread.

    this is all sounding wierdly fetishistic.


    mine just says: "you can cuss me all you want after this rep. get it up there and don't you cheat me, cuz you're just cheating yourself."

    As far as spots go the best for bench was last monday. The guy was barely touching the bar on the way up - really making me do the work, and he let go for me to control it down myself. Ace.

    I actually sometimes have the '93 Mr britain spot me on DB shoulder press and he's very good.

    But if we're on about motivation to get extra reps i got a little man in my head telling me things...

    I was in the gym last week and some small little guy, who looked no older than 16, and no bigger than bout 5'5 at like 100 pounds decides he's going to bench a plate with no spotter. I was in the middle of my db press so i couldn't really stop him from even attempting it. Anyway, he manages to lift the bar with the 20 kilo plates on each side, I didn't even think he could do that, but that's where his luck ran out. Bam, he starts shaking and making a funny noise. I just finished my set and tunred my head because I heard this weird noise. I see this big guy running in and lifting up the bar with one hand and then putting it back. About 2 seconds later he just starts dying of laughter, he couldn't hold it in, he's on the floor cracking up. That in turn triggered all of us to start laughing, and even though we kind of felt bad for this little guy we just couldn't help it. Anyway, about 2 minutes later my friend comes up to me and asks me if I know who the guy that helped out this poor little kid is? I had no idea but it was a former seattle seahawk wr.
    So not only was his spot the best spot, for it saved this poor kids life, but it was also the most entertaining.
