Throughout Mark Bell’s career, he has suffered multiple shoulder injuries due to heavy bench press training. Being one of the strongest bench pressers in the world, Mark could not just sit out and skip bench pressing due to shoulder pain. He wanted to continue to bench heavy without the pain while reinforcing proper form, so he created the Original Sling Shot.
The Maddog Sling Shot is double ply and twice as thick as the Original Sling Shot. The Maddog’s increased tension makes it perfect for lifters working with weights over 400 lbs. Its dramatic support allows you to handle significantly more than your max, training the nervous system and preparing you for your next PR.
The Maddog Sling Shot hardcore design was inspired by Mark Bell’s brother Maddog Mike. Built to support the strongest benchers, the Maddog was designed with input from multiple world record holders and professional athletes resulting in a Sling Shot with unparalleled performance.
