    Well I have been reading through your log because I thought that you said at one time that you used a set of handles of some kind. Other than that I am not sure yet.

    Edit: I found it after 3 hours. Is that what you still use?

    The first gadget I used was a Top Squat from Dave Draper
    Search by google and you see. Using that I noticed that I had a tendency to round my back by moving my shoulders forward.
    Then I met with SS coach Carl Raghavan and he had me use simple straps around the bar and then just hold them in my hands. It worked but felt a little insecure.
    So I Made the slings from a couple of ropes and two pieces of hard plastic
    Tubes as handles. They work better, its easier to keep shoulders back and push against the bar.
    Did you see the picture of the rope with handles?

    Thanks for the info. Yes I saved the picture of the ones that you made. I just finished making a pair. I just have to go back out after I warmup and tie the ropes and try them.

    Pain free after this. I will keep adding unless I start hurting again. Hopefully the elbow sleeves will help. I missed the fact that my new elbow sleeves were sitting in the mail box way before I had my very late workout today. They are a workout just to get them on but I think the fit is correct as you do not want them loose. I will try on my next bench workout.
