The Art of Spotting - Part 1

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional

Abstract

[Extract] Three broken fingers, a laceration requiring 16 stitches and tendon repair surgery, four broken ribs and a punctured lung and several disc protrusions. What do they all have in common? Poor spotting technique.

While many fitness orientated courses, gym instructors and personal trainers take the time to teach exercise techniques correctly, few provide instruction on how to “spot.” In fact, many gym instructors and personal trainers themselves have not been taught to spot correctly.
