Umm guys Ive been around the game for a while, but I have no idea what the purpose of the chains, when it comes to powerlifting. And I know what bands, do but if somebody mind explaining them too.

I am by no means an expert but I believe they are used for like progressive resistance. Like as you lift more "links" come off the ground adding weight as you move through your ROM.

I think they're pretty much the same as bands but not quite as versatile.

Yeah, what they said. Sorta like bands in that they add isometric resistance, so the further away from the floor the resistance becomes progressively heavier.
