Have you used the slingshot in your training?
Yeah, I love it for 2 reasons. When I was recovering from my rotator cuff tear this allowed me to bench pain free and I also use it for 2 additional sets after my normal 3 on bench. It takes a few workouts to get used to, but a few power lifters in my gym turned me on to it and I've turned a few guys in there on to it as well. Everyone seems to love it, especially guys with existing shoulder injuries that like the support it provides.
