Spotter = Safe

Here's my advice for the day... always have a spotter when you do any kind of bench press with free weights. This sounds obvious enough, but many people ignore this safety practice... me included! Today during a set of bench presses, my right arm gave out and I dropped a 60 lb dumbbell on my chest, right near my shoulder. I was expecting it to tickle, but it just hurt.

That is the exact reason I don't use free weights. I prefer the machines that will catch it for me.
