If you seen me post you know I have short arms, so its either have someone spot me or not do over 225 because I can barely get the bar off the rack because its barely out of my arm length.
Ya, stupid to have someone I don't know spot me. But it would have been the same with 225 or even 250 which I can bench multiple times, because he picked it up to high and just let go around my neck instead of letting go around my chest.
Had someone do that to me before where they picked up the full weight and just let go, but they let go where they should have, so I told him to rack it and he picked it up and didn't mess my shoulder up.
Also I fixed my bench technique and haven't had my shoulders hurt from doing bench.
