    simple question why do you work out with him? i used to work out with a friend of mine who i know for 6 years.. he wasnt as dedicated and i told him that.. he didnt say anything but okay.. and now i either work out by myself or i ask someone around to spot me..

    I work out by myself. If I really feel a need a spot I ask one of the guys kicking around. I prefer solo workouts anyway - I get done faster, less bull****, no talking, and can fully immerse myself in my own little world. Once I put my headphones on I am 100% focused and that's the way I like it.

    I don't think it's any spotter's responsibility to count reps... just to make sure you're safe. He didn't do that, and you shoud've dropped the dumbell on his foot.

    Hopefully stay committed? Wrong attitude if you want to get big brotha! You have to know you're going to be in there busting ass, never missing a session. You have to be as sure of that as you're positive that you'll get up and take a piss tomorrow morning. You don't even think about it, you just do it. No more of this 'hopefully' attitude, it's just not the way to get big...

    Thats some scary ****...and you say he spots you for squats also? I would definitely rethink about finding a new training partner or like Polska says about training solo.
    I never thought I'd be able to train solo, and I've come a long way since I've been training by myself.. I'm actually more motivated because I know I'm the only one who is responsible for me showing up and putting in my 110%... No one else but me! Sometimes when people have a partner they tend to slack a little, (don't get me wrong not everyone), but I feel if you are a determined self motivated person, then solo isn't always such a bad idea.... You can always find a spot....just stay away from those narcissus type people and you'll do be better in the long run..JMO

    ps, I've had a barbell bust right on my face while I had a spot when I was doing decline bench, and he wasn't paying attention..just like you, he was looking at himself in the mirror. I was so scared I had lost my teeth, but I was very fortunate that I had Julia Roberts lips for a week. (true story)

    yeah ur right, i did find it scary training on my own but i went yesterday and banged out a heavy sestion, i was on flat bench and i felt my arms go on the 6th rep, i had to use all my power and energy to move that weight away from chest or else id have been hurt! it was an incerdable feeling
