    I just started lifting with my one friend since I got home from school. He's all into powerlifting/strongman crap. Anyway, for the last week or so I've been lifting with him and I have to say that using bands and chains is a beautiful thing.

    I know that many of you do it on a regular basis...but if you haven't tried it, try it.

    Isn't band/chain work alot more helpful for people who lift with gear? I'm pretty sure Wendler mentioned that in one of his articles.

    Also, my friend is in the PSU PL club, says its great and they have an awesome gym.

    from what i understand, bands/chains teach acceleration throughout the lift (specifically the bottom). i dont see how this is more helpful for people with gear vs those w/o.

    bands and chains help overload the top end. Gear will push you out of the bottom end
