Im the guy in the red shirt in the video. It was hard as hell! My back was sore till Tuesday. I bought some straps while I was there as Spud told me I needed to do more of them as my form looked good doing them. we went up to 4 plates on the bar with 2 swinging for a double, It was pretty rough. You half to be slow through the whole lift or else you would face plant as some of teh guys found out. I loved em.
We used that method for bench. I gave up on them rather quickly cause I found it hurt mu shoulders and elbows. We used KB. I did find any noticable benefit from this method but some of the other guys said it helped them with stability. I guess its one of those things that will work for some and not others. I havent tried it for squats though. Might give it a shot this week as an assistance excercise.
We were supposed to squat with bands but after I came out form putting on my briefs he ahd this thing riged up like htis. My porblem is I tend to get fast and sloppy. I was all over the place in warm ups, in the sets on the video I felt stable and locked in, they look like that to. It really forces you to stay tight through the whole lift and keep your form.
I've done sqauts and DL w/ KB's hanging from the bar.
As stated, very hard to stabilize and stay tight. Definitely builds your core thoughout the lift...
