I had someone get pissy at me recently because I assisted his last bench press rep when he was clearly about to fail. I barely helped at all. When his upward motion haulted and his arms started shaking, I just slightly lifted the bar. He said I didn’t let him complete his last rep. I thought I just prevented him from dropping the bar on himself. I guess we were on different pages. I just shrugged and said my bad, I thought you were done so I err’d on the side of caution. Fucker asks me for a spot again a few minutes later, ugh. This time he was clearly about to fail, so I assisted again. Fucker got pissy again, lol. I just told him, “ask someone else for your next set.” I think the guy was just a jerk. He was a 40 something year old with basically a dadbod. He was taking his workout way too serious. He should not come alone or maybe hire a coach. Getting mad at a stranger who was trying to make sure he didn’t hurt himself is an asshole move. I hate spotting people (but usually won’t say no if asked) and I don’t ask people to spot me. If I didn’t come with a buddy, I don’t get to push myself that day. Squats, snatches, cleans or any other awkward spotting positions? Forget about it. I say no.
