I dabble in powerlifting so my set work usually revolves around lifting as heavy as I can, and a lot of times I will fail a rep. I've always had a home gym but recently had to grab an Anytime Fitness membership. I'm not lifting anything crazy (Bench 250, Squat 315, DL 315, all 5x5) but I've noticed I'm usually lifting the heaviest of those around me, and a few times when I've failed a rep, especially on bench, I've had people RUSH over like my life is depending on it. The thing is, I use the safeties so I'm fine. I feel like I'm causing undue panic to people around me because a lot of them seem genuinely concerned and are always relieved once I just roll off the bench and stand up. Maybe having a home gym all this time has given me gym autism but is it unusual to use to safeties and/or fail your reps? I'm not screaming or making any noise either, just gently lowering the bar to the safeties.

I hate zoomers
Most gym goers don't push themselves enough to experience failing a lift because they're casuals. That's not a bad thing as they have a different goal, so when they see someone fail they automatically think they're hurt as they only know it happens to them when something goes wrong
i failed a bench once and spotter arms were too low for my big manboobs so the bar rolled down my neck applying soft but steady pressure
i was ok and coulda squeeze my head out but some buff israeli yoinked it from me and after that kept on looking out till i left
shit like this is why i don't homegym
Shit like this is why my first warmup set with the bar usual involves dumping the weight to check I have the safeties set correctly
That sounds scary, I don't blame the dude for stepping in. I'm a firm believer in people needing to know how to bail from an exercise on their own, but that scenario is one I'd step in.
I think you misread his post anon
He was happy for the spot, he said "why I DONT home gym"
Yeah, I sure did. My 'tism flares up sometimes

You will never fail rep like this king
I have the exact same thing happen to me. Everyone thinks they're some kind of hero rushing over to me as soon as they see the reps start to slow down. Suddenly there's some asshole hovering his hands over me to give an unsolicited spot, and it just breaks my concentration.
I get that they're just dyels who don't know any better and think that failing on bench means the weight instantly flies down at terminal velocity to cut my body in half, but holy shit that's NOT HOW IT WORKS. Even besides the fact that the benches at my gym have safeties.
Genuinely don't know what to do about this. It's not super common, but it happens every so often. But at the same time I'd look like a presumptuous douchebaag if I put up a sign behind me saying "DO NOT SPOT UNLESS REQUESTED". I guess I could strategically put a bunch of plates and other bullshit behind the bench against the wall to prevent anyone from being able to get behind it at the spotter position.
If I see some white knights hovering and I know I’m likely to need a spot I would ask someone who looks half competent to actually spot me so I don’t get some retard heroing over and fuck it up
People don't train to failure. They're wrong but there's nothing you can do about. Try appreciating their kindness and sociability and then using it for personal gain by having them help you force reps.
OP here, I do appreciate their kindness which is why I'm worried that I'm stressing them out and interrupting their workouts by making them think I need saving.
Why don't you make some gym friends?
Just ask guys that are roughly your size for a spot. That way when you're failing a rep they'll help you complete it. ...And maybe another rep on top of that. You do want to grow, don't you?
And if they say that you should lower your weight you can launch into a friendly discussion about the benefits of low rep work.
Additionally you can help each other perform the odd drop set. Most gym goers don't know about them and they'll be grateful for the knowledge and the extra bit of fun at the gym.
I also have a home gym, so I'm prone to autism, but a public gym shouldn't be used like home gym. Anyone who "doesn't want to be bothered or talked to" in a public space should fuck off to their own little hole. Interacting with other gym goers should be a matter of course.
Anyways, within 10 years or so I'll open my own gym. There'll be almost no machines and at most 2 employees at any given time. This will force the gym goers to talk to each other and learn from one another how to train.
The people need a hero. If you let them assist you and be part of something bigger than themself (your gains) then you're being kind too.
meanwhile ex has moved on from everything to do with him while he has stalled and only makes number go up in gym and on the scale. THIS is the final and killing blow to roidcels, bloatlords and manlets.
Ex self-cancelled and has under half the viewers she used to
taking a break after drama which only interests adhd teens isn't cancelling yourself it is the smartest thing to do.
She attempted to gaslight a rape victim into denying she was raped.
and she was a good friend
Going to need confirmation on that buddy.
Alot of "rape victims" making channels are liars.
Rapes not something you brag about, one of my relatives was raped.
You seriously spend your time on this bullshit? lmao, zoomers really have no life
No, she attempted to convince a lying attention seeking whore not to publicly accuse her autistic friend.
Wow please tell me more, this is really interesting
That's not what happened, Adriana wasn't even raped. Crazy slick was caught creeping on her while sleeping. There was no sexual act involved
If you have anytime, just go late. I go around midnight and don’t have to deal with people at all. I do occasionally ask somebody for a spot if they are available but I’m lifting a lot heavier than you.
Going to failure is counterproductive for STRENGTH training. Avoid failure on B/S/DL. Do as many reps as you can on your muscle building accessories though.
If you are routinely failing reps your training/form is shit. You should fail maybe 0.1% of your lifts. Unless you are deliberately maxing once a month or something, every weight should be under control, even if it’s a grinder
They are under control, I am just lowering them to the safeties when I can't get them to the rack. Look up "training to failure."
>set the safeties right instead of relying on random retards being able to row my bench
>can fail all I want and be fine
it's that easy
You're not an ego lifting streamer whose audience of pajeets thinks is natty though
