View Full Version : I'm so confused about these bench shirts

02-01-2004, 09:24 PM
hey .. please excuse my ignorance..I know that powerlifters use bench shirts in competitions and they get higher bench presses..my question is 1) how much do they cost? 2) how do you get one? 3) what different types are available? and 4) If I'm benching around 240 max how much would a shirt help?

1) from $40-$300 (approx)
2) www.inzernet.com / www.elitefts.com / www.titansupport.com / etc.
3) poly and denim are the two types I know, both come in multiple layers
4) depends on a lot of different factors (the shirt, your technique, your weakness/strength on the bench) ... unfortunately, you won't get a straight answer for this one. I've tried. ;)

Why do you want to get one? Answer that and maybe I can help you.

Save your money.

If you plan on competing then get back to me.

Yeah I dont think your goals match your need/wanting a shirt. Just get stronger without the shirt then if you compete some day you will be better off.
