Default 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.

We live in a Free Market. That's why many companies produce a lot of similar stuff. Knee Wraps, Wrist Wraps, Wrist Straps, Shoes, Bench/Squat/Deadlift Suits and so...

I had two guys come to me and asked for a Review of the Hip Circle and Short Sleeves

So I shot my E-Mail over and got this back...

We prefer to not work with companies that promote the knock off versions of our patent pending product. Mark is the one that invented this product and brought it to market, Titan and the others are simply copycats who jumped on this product when they saw how successful Mark was.
We look forward to the day when we can legally stop these guys from profiting off Mark's idea.

His pissed so many copied the Slingshot that as a Pending patent. Which doesn't mean you have or are going to be able to get a patent.

Chuck Taylors... Reebok made this and Mark Bell is Promoting it...Which Mark Bell Quotes.. Finally a Shoe for Powerlifting, made by Powerlifters for just powerlifting..... By it's painted up and covered with Crossfit and Crossfits logo..designs.
