What is a Bench Shirt?

I’ve seen videos, and heard people talk about how wearing a bench shirt helps them lift more. But it just looks like a shirt. What is it and how does it work?

It looks so ugly it scares the bar off your chest.

It’s used to channel the spirits of great and ancient lifters. You ever notice how guys wearing them kinda have there arms pinned up in front of them? It helps to channel the mystic energy.
