So this question came into my head earlier when I was at the gym. I usually have some gym buddies, but every so often I go on my own if I have to. I wanted to do some chest, but told myself I wouldn't push it too heavy because I had no one to spot me. So I got to wondering, what would one do if one were to get stuck under the bench press? This can go for either the traditional free weight barbell, or Smith machine (which I assume would be tougher because you can't just "roll it off" like a barbell). Have you ever been in this predicament, and what did you do? If not, what do you think you'd do?
