    I was under the impression it was more appropriate for equipped lifters because it mimics the strength curve of wearing a shirt or suit. I have seen guys at my uni gym break out bands and chains for benching and squatting and I know for a fact they are not PLers. Does it have its place in raw lifting or is it a waste of time?

    Whether you are wearing a suit or shirt is irrelevant. Using chains is probably more appropriate for non-PLs because PLs should train with the same resistance curves they face in competition. Chains aren't even that great of an enhancement, though.

    I have been lifting raw for a while now and really like bands/chains. I think it helps work weak points (triceps for most benchers), explosiveness, and rate of force production. Vincent Dizenzo used a lot of bands/chains and raw benched 605 a couple of months ago.
