I'd love to just try a slingshot.  Really don't want to spend the money though.  But I really want 300 before I crest the hill...if you know what I mean.  If I may ask, why do you use it?  Srsly curious, with no one in the powerlifting world to talk to.
It allows you to overload the muscle group.  It helps conquer the fear of the weight.  I've used mine to work up to a 405lb bench.  My best in a Meet is 305.  It alleviates some of the weight at the bottom of the movement, but offers no help at the top of the movement.  Yesterday I was using mine in close Grip bench, and was workign sets at 315.

I think it has helped a great deal in my raw bench.

Sounds like I should reconsider...

Is there a slingshot for squats? LOL

Deadlift Day

Tried some different stuff today.

First off I warmed up with some reverse hyper extensions.  Felt good, but my lower back got super pumped and uncomfortable so I'm not sure it if hurt my session or helped it.

Also threw my green and black Rogue Monster Bands in my gym bag and did a few heavy singles with a reverse band setup.  That was fun.

Nice!  Any idea how much the bands take off at the bottom?

Nope.  I don't think it's exact as it's a rubber band so the tension increases as it is stretched.

Still fun as hell to use them.

Hell yes!!!!   :)

Not quite a legit 6 plate lift, but thanks.

You can "calculate" how much it takes off by suspending the bar by the bands, and then load it carefully until it stretches to the floor. 
I have no doubt it's fun!  Looks awesome! :thumbsup: I'm looking forward to incorporating some into my mix.  Just thought it would be nice to know (scientifically) how much it's helping at the bottom. :respect:
