Ever had this happen when someone's asks for a spot?
Wouldnt do it
Would ignore or say no
I’ll only spot when someone’s benching. I’m not a complete demon.
No problem. Don't go heavy unless you have buddies to spot you. Asking a stranger to spot you in the pictures I posted is weird, even for sherdog standards.
I've spotted and strangers have spotted me on my last set, just to be safe.
It's just good gym etiquette to lend a hand when needed.
For a regular spot sure.
But have you spotted a stranger directly behind them like in the pictures I posted?
I've never seen a woman ask a stranger to spot her like this.
I’m generally an unsociable uncaring prick of a person, but even I couldn’t bear the sight of a heavy bench gone wrong. I wouldn’t be able to eat afterwards after they scraped that stiff off the bench. Might get a strange boner though..
I don't care to have a spotter for squats.
Just bail out if you happen to fail.
Any backstory on them .gifs
I agree with normal spotting.
The pictures I posted are not normal. In fact, I have never seen this before separate from when the dude asked me.
Didn't think I'd find pictures to be honest.
None that I'm aware of. But here's a good front story.....
That's the proper way to spot a squat if there is only one spotter. If you can get to people on either side of the bar, that works too.
Keep digging you’ll find more.
You're extremely overestimating Sherdog standards, Brother.
Should ask for a jerk and clean, or some snatch?
All I ask for is a clean snatch. I'm easy that way.
It doesn't matter if it's the proper way, asking a stranger to stand behind you like that is beyond weird. Fine if you know the person.
I think I'm being kind.
