Make sure it is enough of a spotter. When I was in High School one of my buddies had like 375 pounds on there (IIRC) and wrapped his elbows, well, he couldn't get it up and the bar bounced off his chest. He was a little bastard, probably 140 or something, that was not cool. I couldn't believe he didn't break his sternum or ribs or something. He said he was just sore.

Either way, just make sure your spotter is paying attention and strong enough to help if you need it.
