To show you what not to do, each week STACK brings you a moment from the weight room or sports field gone horribly wrong.
If you don’t use a spotter when trying to max out your Bench Press, you’re asking for terrible things to happen. But sometimes, a bad spotter is worse than no spotter at all. To demonstrate, we introduce the World’s Worst Spotter.

Watch out for the World’s Worst Spotter. He:
- Is skinny enough to fit into a women’s extra small, but not quite small enough to fit between the wall and the bench
- Loves counting
- Is rocking out to tunes on his headphones
- Would rather stand behind the camera than the bench
- Has never touched a weight in his life
- Can provide a surprisingly detailed definition of involuntary manslaughter
Do you work out with a terrible spotter? Consider a breakup. Your trachea will thank you.
