Chains

ok… i read the article about using chains for your squats or bench press and i have seen the university of michigan using them for their football team. I am very curious about where to get these chains… how to hook em all up and how big and what my workout should be… the article wasnt very specific how to do it all… if you could help me out i would appreciate it/

Go to westsidebarbellclub.com, the home of powerlifting coach and chain and band use advocate Louie Simmons. There you will find contact information for Topper Supply Company, which sells the full powerlifting chain set as recommended by Louie.

if you want more specific advice on how to do it go to www.elitefitnesssystems.com and read some of the old articles. there are tons of them and if you still have questions you can ask dave on his “ask dave” forum he has. hope this helps. - Nic

just use some log chains, man. get them at a hardware/supply store. just double or triple them up if they do not seem heavy enough. this is an AWESOME workout, by the way.
