    you need to be benching alot more than 135 before you even consider chains, christophers has repeatedly said that you need a good base before you start any type of this crap

    Do not speak of that which you do not know. Chains are used to increase resistance as the ROM reaches the top.

    I would say even higher than that. I am at 365 and not using them. I probably won't use anything until at least 405. The only thing that is holding you back is your lack of motivation and eating, not the equipment (unless you only have like a bar and two 45's or something).

    Wait, you misunderstood. I agree, not good enough base to start using chains. Your not ready for chains yet XslicK.
