Bench Assistance Devices & Mark Bell
It was asked if Mark Bell was the first to have a bench assistance device. I don't believe so. I am pretty sure Chris Taylor's "Bench Strap" existed before Bell's Slingshot.
Here is a "bench strap" video from 2008. How long the strap was around before this, who knows.
I do know that lifters once used bands to assist the bench.
