Re: Appetite for Construction.
Regards the bench press,have you thought about using some saw horses as "spotters?".Its what I use when I bench and think I might fail on one...they go for about £20 a pair if you hunt around,although I got mine cheaper from Lidl.The ones I got hold up to 100kg each side which is plenty,if they can hold 200kg thats WAY more than I can bench...I'd be happy with 1/2 that.... :-(
Just measure up to allow for them being tall enough to take the weight off your chest if you fail.Plus you can use some of them for dips too.
