Hi, everyone… I’d like to attempt the 12 Weeks to Super Strength program as well as the limping program, once school starts back up. Here’s the problem: Although we do have a nice gym, I wouldn’t trust any of the “trainers” farther than I could throw them (bad analogy, seeing as they’re such skinny bastards). I also don’t have a workout partner (I do my workouts really really early in the morning). Ian King seems to stress the use of a spotter, so how do I get around this? Can the program be used effectively without one?
of course you can. But on presses you’ll need a spot if you want to work with any intensity. Any of those skinny bastard personal trainers will be more than happy to spot you. Just ask them they’ll do it.
I guess my next question is whether or not I should attempt this program with a pathetic bench, or should I wait until I have something to work through? I seem to have plateued, but it’s a way way waaay low number…
For probably 75% of the program you won’t need a spotter, but to get the best out of it you will need 1 (or even 2)esp in week 12, go for it.
