Training without a Spotter
Weight Training with no Spotter
Training without a spotter can be dangerous, no doubt about it. But
many guys are in a situation where this is a necessity, particularly
if the workout is performed at home. And sometimes a commercial gym
may be virtually empty, or conversely, full of people without the
time to spot, that you end up training without a spotter.
Safety is a huge issue when training without a spotter so you don't
want to take any unnecessary risks. All of training is somewhat
risky but you want to lower the risk profile of each workout as low
Power Rack to the Rescue
The quintessential tool for training without a spotter is the power
rack. Nothing comes close to this choice piece of equipment and after
the weights, it is the most vital thing to have for someone lifting
at home and/or alone (you may have to make use of one in a gym if you
can't get a spotter or two).
A power rack lets you perform almost all movements in safety, acting
as a spotter for you. You can set the support bars where you want
them for movements like the squat, letting you get in a full lift
while still offering safety.
Even the bench press can be performed in the power rack, with perhaps
even more safety than two spotters would give you.
Speaking of the bench press, if you ever do have to bench press
without a spotter and without a power rack or specialized bench with
supporting arms for safety, then make sure you don't have any collars
or other holding items on the end of the bar in the event you get
stuck and need to get the weight off. If you don't have collars you
can simply dump the weight load off – first one side, then the other.
But it is not recommended that you perform the bench press without a
spotter unless you do have a power rack or bench with supporting
Keep most of your big heavy-duty training in the power rack. And then
use other exercises that don't require a spotter, such as the
military press, dumbbell incline curl, etc., for a safe workout that
still promotes growth.
