Response to Bay Boy (Reply #3)

4. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks. The people that lift heavy that come to this

 

gym alway come in groups of two or three. I've never seen one of the 'big lifters' by himself.

People there by themselves who have asked me for a spot have not been using but 200 - 225 lbs. on bench press. The ones by themselves who do squats always seem to use the Smith rack (which I don't like to use BTW). I think I'll be ok.

On the Smith rack/machine, I cannot get both hands far enough back to grasp the bar after I get it in the right place on my traps - we think it might be because the guide bar is at a slight angle. Don't have that problem on the long bar on the squat rack.
