His arm length really doesn't matter. Its all equal. But if you look more into this kid he benched 570 exactly a year ago. Now I'll tell ya..to put 130 pounds on your bench in a year...that's som good "supplements" he's taking.

First, I was in no shape to be trying for maximum singles, so that was out of the question let alone risk blowing out another shoulder or pec. I knew a measly 225 would likely give me an idea of the shirt's capabilities. Man, the shirt was TIGHT across the chest when I tried to just push my arms back. Bob told me when I laid down that I should push out on my abs to help keep the shirt in place.

Sure enough, I could feel the shirt want to pull up. A very tight belt would also help keep it in place or like I have seen in videos -- a partner doing one last tug down while you lie on the bench. So, I take 225 off and start down. It starts ripping the crap out of my triceps. Boy, MUCH different than the old Inzer blast shirt. I put the bar back after I went half way down. Geeez!

Ok, I guess it was time to PULL the bar down to my chest. So, I laid back down again and got the handoff from my son. I pulled and pulled all the while my arms felt like they were in blood pressure cuffs. Down... down... then it hit my chest and I put just a slight upward force and it literally FLEW UP off my chest.

I was shocked. All the pressure built up on the way down was released like a rocket taking off. BOOM! I swear it was as easy as an empty bar! My old Inzer blast shirt NEVER felt like that! I got up and quickly had my son help me pull it over my head and off. It literally scared the crap out of me.

Mostly because I know how strength or perceived strength can hypnotize you and lure you to the dark side of stupidity. What scared me is the fact that these shirts enable one to handle poundages much greater than what they are really capable of lifting without the shirt.

Frankly, I am surprised there isn't more pec tears due to these things or triceps injuries. Let me tell you this, I sure have a new respect for those wearing them when they help them lift much heavier weights. It's called having BIG KAHUNAS! I sure don't have the kahunas now to load up to 100lbs or more over my raw max and try and bench it. Maybe I am just getting old? \:\) It's probably the thought of finally ripping a pec in full that makes me cluck like a chicken. Especially since one of these shirts would likely allow me to use even more weight for a max.

It was definitely fun trying one of the modern day bench shirts; especially since I had bought one of the first "grandpa's" of these modern day shirts so I could compare the two. The remembrance I will have for my test is a nice linear "zipper" like bruise on both triceps that looks like I just had triceps surgery on both arms! Special thanks go to Bob Lipinski for sending me the shirt so I could try it.

Bob has done an official 518 pounds (it looked easy) in a contest and my guess he's going to do more in the future. Good luck Bob! If you decide to compete in powerlifting in the bench press, make sure you do your homework with regard to bench shirts. Because competing without one these days would be like entering a gun fight with a butter knife!

Back in late 90's when I was liftin in competitions a blast shirt might give ya 20 lb extra but they probably have gotten better. Never wore one just what some of them guys told me that did wear one.
