Has always looked like a good way to ruin a good lift to me. In my eyes it borderlines on silly and ridiculousness. But that's just one mans opinion and to be honest I've never tried them. (and probably never will)
Just to clarify, so I don't look like a complete jerk, when I think this lift being done, it is by skinny weak kids in the commercial gym who can't regular bench over 185. So to be fair this lift may very well have its place in an advanced power lifters arsenal. I really don't know. But I will go out on a limb and say that 95% of the guys using this lift in the gym have no business doing it and should just focus on getting there bench to 315 and beyond.
