It works in a similar fashion to a bench shirt. The main differences however are it is much softer,easier to get on/off and versatile. This model the the big boss of the range and is a double ply version of the original. These means you get much more assistance and provide greater overload.
This is designed for people benching upwards of 180kg. The doubly ply nature lends itself to replicating a bench shirt more accurately.

The Maddog Sling Shot is best suited to maximal effort work in the 1-3 rep range.
