Elitefts™ Social Media Manager Matt Ladewski demonstrates a variation of the Reverse Band Bench Press using the elitefts™ Pro Average Bands attached to the elitefts™ Swiss Press Bar.


This alternative way to set up bands for reverse band bench. It was first set up this way by the Metal Militia lifters (Bill Crawford and Sebastian Burns). It allows for greater unload at the bottom like a bench shirt with much less if any band at the top. You must push fast or you will miss for sure. You can see how close to lockout I stall.
