Good stuff Hazzard. The whole bench press spotting is one of my pet peeves -- I'll tell someone "I'm going for X reps. I really only want a handoff and a rescue if I get stapled." And yet they still are there, "helping" me get those last couple of reps. Fortunately there are a couple of guys at the gym who I can trust to spot me without interfering with my reps, but those are few and far between.
