So, without the shirt, does it equate to 525-550 lbs?
That's probably about right. A lifter who knows how to lift with a 3 ply shirt can easily add 2-300 lbs on their bench with a shirt. Don't really understand how someone can be so proud of what is essentially an assisted lift; what's next, hydraulic bench shirts? lol

I have went to a couple of powerlifting meets and find it funny watching the guys walk around in those shirts with their arms pulled straight out in front of them. I am like you, whats the point?

I've never heard of those shirts before. Could someone explain to me how they help?
I just did a little reading on it and apparently it can actually significantly improve your bench weight... that's stupid. Why do it then?
The shirt actually pulls your arms up... some of them you can't even pull your arms back without the weight of the bar pressing them down.
