    That's why I asked. The SPF that I plan to compete in has a category for bench pressing with Mark Bell's slingshot. Other than him being a sponsor, I just dont understand why that's a thing.

    My initial post reads as more inflammatory than I meant it to be. That's just my nature. Lol

    Equipped lifting is something you can’t really understand until you’ve tried it or at least trained with some guys that use it for a while. It really is like a whole different sport.
    Im a big fan of raw lifters using equipment for overload training. I used to have a single ply squat suit I used every couple weeks. Helped me break out of a plateau. The highest I ever went with it was 765.
    It really makes your normal raw weight unracks a lot less scary.

    Interesting. They’re actually competing using the slingshot? When I’m not broken anymore I’m going to use mine a whole lot more
    Now if you know what you’re worth then get out there and get what you’re worth

    Yes.

    What do you like about it 30? The only people I ever see using them just do so bc they want to put a bunch of weight on the bar. But I dont lift st a powerlifting gym

    The other night I saw this clown, he had a bench shirt, sling shot and made sure his belt was on tight... on the decline bench... bouncing 2 plates off his big belly. Dude was all geared up. I was just there laughing found it pretty damn funny.

    I wouldn’t use it to add weight. I would use it to squeak out more reps. Like rep out 315 without it, then throw on the slingshot and keep going at the same weight. I would just use it as a tool

    Gotcha. I use a spotter for that but Im more likely to just keep dropping plates.

    Slingshot is great for training your groove imo. Ques you to keep your elbows tucked. For a lot of guys it completely eliminates bench-related shoulder pain.
    When used to use it a lot, I did pretty much what 30 said. Work up to a double or triple raw, then add the slingshot for reps at the same weight.
