  4. no, they are big hooks you can hang on a decently elevated bar, you use them to hold dbs at a decent height, racking them and unracking to use

    That's an illogical way of thinking.

    agreed; it's more a safety issue, why put your shoulders/rotator cuffs thru that potential strain every time you get the dbs up and down onto the floor?

    its like benching in a power rack when you are going heavy and alone in the gym (or no trustworthy spotter)

  10. I disagree, you powerlifters use so many props to help you lift it gets a little ridiculous...bench shirts, squat suits, wrist straps, knee wraps, power hooks, smelling salts etc...etc... it gets to the point where i have to ask, is it you lifting the weight or all your equipment.

  11. i thought there was a question about my power hook.... ya know the one i smash peoples faces with

    so you are in a powerlifting forum and decide this is the place to criticize powerlifters and their chosen ways....

    the powerhooks have nothing to do with powerlifting, they are an aide to anyone wanting to work with heavy dumbbells.

  13. Exactly. Thank you for chiming in rx1997. I am close to dumbell benching 100 and I want to make sure I don't throw my rotator cuff off.

    Better not use the power hook. If you don't follow the instructions, you could get hurt.

  15. Straight up. Only thing i use hooks for are dumbell rows. There is nothing better for it....... well maybe beastly forearms.
