Q. Glen, I get a little nervous when lifting heavy weights. Can I trust any body in the gym to spot me?
A. No! Spotting is an important part of lifting weights safely. Make sure you and your spotter are on the same page before you begin your exercise. For example, tell your spotter if you'd rather he/she help you by pushing underneath your elbows or wrists and find out what your spotter prefers when it's his/her turn. Also, make sure you determine how you want to be encouraged. Some people work best with a screaming partner egging them on, and others prefer a quieter form of encouragement. Finding a good spotter can help take your workout to the next level.
Glen's Bottom Line: trust your workout partner.
