    that's pretty interesting... good idea, i suppose, but when i do inclines, i don't usually do 'em in front of the smith machine... so, they'd be pretty useless to me

    now, if you had a home gym, i could see the benefit

    in that case, full speed ahead

    pretty innovative idea, especially if they work well

    On the road. Again.
    if you can't lift the weight to your chest, you have bigger problems than not being able to bench it.

    Like an unbalanced workout routine.

    I have problems getting the weight up when using DBs. I usually need assistance when I go over 100's. Especially on shoulder press

    I think it would be great on DB press. I feel that first rep/getting it up there fatigues me a little bit and limits my lifts

    What's the weight limit of these things?

    usually on my last set when i'm doing a weight i can only get for 3-5 reps or so, i'll need help getting the db's into position, so i guess these would be helpful. But it's just easier to grab someone for a second.
