    Slingshot

    Just wanted to let anyone know who's interested that I got a Slingshot through today and had a play during my ME bench session.

    Think it's a great piece of kit - especially for anyone who is long armed like me and has shoulder issues.

    I hate raw benching but this really took some stress out of it. Didn't add 100's of pounds and that;s not the point. It let me do some heavy non-shirted (I daren't saw raw lol) with ALOT less discomfort. I worked upto 440 pinky on rings and my max is probably 410-420.

    Big thumbs up and the best 40 I've spent this year
    Best lifts @ 226 lbs

    Bench - 573 / 617 @ 246

    I also just got one. It seems to add only about 10%, but the best thing is that it forces your elbows into
    a shirt-like groove. A nice piece for only $40.

    yea i got one too and i like it so far. What i've been doing is my normal 5/3/1 plus the slingshot at the end.

    So its like this (say it's my 3, 3, 3++ week):

    first set of three no slingshot
    second set of three no slingshot
    third set of three no slingshot for as many as i can and then quick throw on the slingshot without resting and do as many more as i can
