    You left out the most important part, this ultimate deciding factor as to whether it was cringe or not: how much were you benching?

        If I see a dude I know at the bench, I'll offer to give him a spot. Thats the only time though.

          And by that you mean someone you've seen on occasion?

            No, we have to have talked before. Usually this applies to regulars, because I talk to people I see multiple times. I guess that would make us friends.

        I've never offered to spot someone, but theoretically, I would always spot someone if asked

          So it's not a bitch move to ask the guy on bench (alone) next to me to spot me and offer to spot him?

        I think I get asked to spot someone maybe once a month or so. Mostly strangers. Never feels weird it's normal.

      If you unironically listen to fresh&fit go for a huge pr without a spotter next time and drop it on your neck

    When I was starting out benching some hapa powerlifter chick came over to save me after I went to failure doing some ridiculously low weight. Still the hottest girl I’ve spoken to at the gym and wasn’t even embarrassing in the moment.

    OP here, so if I'm benching alone I should be aware and not get near my limits so that I don't make an ass out of myself? This doesn't happen to regulars lifting heavy?

        I'm new to gym atmosphere so I'm not a dickhead asking for a spot? I figure I look like less a retard not being able to finish my rep...

          I would say that it's more retarded when someone has to run over and deadlift the weight off your chest.

          No it's fine if the guy you're asking isn't doing anything
          I'm fairly new too (1 year) and I've asked people to spot me sometimes and they gladly helped me

      They're just called "flys" dude. Maybe DB fly if you're feeling cheeky.

    >omg so cringe ammirite guys?
    Stfu zoomer. The cringe is you quitting after you missed one lift. You're a pussy, so is half this board because most of you have never even tried lifting something heavy enough to crush you. Most of you are fine doing 15x5 sets and then wondering why you aren't getting big.

    I genuinely don't understand how this was cringe. The conversation seems like a normal conversation in such a situation. The cringe aspect of it was that you failed a bench? How the hell is failing a lift cringe?
