600 Pound Bench (The Spotter Concerns Me)


#1

Scroll to the 3:51 mark. For those of you that can bench 600 pounds as confidently as Andy Haman does in this video, wouldn't you still want a spotter (or 2) that can yank the weight up off of you if something goes wrong? I'm just asking.


#2

If I know I can get a weight, and have gotten a weight before I won't ask for a spotter.

Maybe I should, but I don't plan for shit to go wrong, so far nothing has happened.

but then again, I can't bench 600 lbs for 4 reps, but he didn't even look too worn out from it.

thumbless grip...


#4

Whats with the whipped cream? I watched without sound, so it looked absurdly... absurd...


#5

I think I need to start using whip cream.


#6

all you need is two fingers


#7

You realize this has been discussed before and is fake right?


#8

We've had that vid posted on here before... And why would he need a different spotter when benching fake weight?


#9

<---- feels out of the loop for not knowing that
