The Backbone is Your Next Bench Press Grip Pad.

The Backbone stops your back and shoulders from sliding on any bench press! It provides optimal grip, allowing athletes to focus on repetitions as opposed to focusing on unnecessary movements caused by slipping backwards.

Bar grip shirts can be highly effective for squatting but lack the grip required for bench press. Additionally, most people bench press more than once per week, meaning you'll need to do laundry more frequently; This actually wears down the grip on the shirt.

Using bands or shelf liner for grip? Forget those too. Shelf liner isn't durable and moves too much during bench press set up. Bands only cover a fraction of your back and can additionally make set ups more difficult.

It's time to try The Backbone. It's convenient, portable, and cost-effective. We offer a 12" x 20" size which is much larger than competitors and perfect for advanced athletes who have aggressive bench press set ups. Additionally, the velcro straps underneath any bench for added grip.

The Backbone is amazing in helping me stay tight on the bench to maintain my arch and to better incorporate leg drive. I’ve tried other methods such as bands and shelf liner to mimic the effect but they have not been as good at sticking to the bench and as comfortable as the backbone is. I also don’t have to worry about slipping while benching at different gyms, nor do I have to wear ONLY tank tops when benching so I don’t slide. Invest in this, it’s totally worth it.

The Backbone is an absolute necessity for me; especially when I’m not sure what type of bench I’ll be using. My setup/arch requires me to get a good grip on the bench and that’s just not possible on some commercial benches. Since I’ve gotten it, it’s lived in my gym bag and has come in clutch when lifting at a commercial gym. Way more reliable than chalk or an A7 shirt.

Love this! I workout at a commercial gym, and I have so many issues slipping off the benches, especially when I wear regular t-shirts, but this has helped my bench enormously!

Before purchasing the Backbone, my shoulders would slip when using leg drive. The first time I used backbone, I was surprised at how sturdy I was attached to the bench and shoulder slippage was never an issue again! 100% recommend!!

The Backbone has made lifting at my school gym 100x better! I don’t slip at all, even when I’m wearing a regular t shirt that would normally slide all over the place. So happy to have this in my gym back every bench session!

This was something I never knew I needed. I have to work out at a commercial gym, and the benches are so slippery. I’ve been using bands to help, but the backbone changed the game entirely. Can’t bench without it! It’s small so it takes up no space in my gym bag. And the best part is that I am GLUED TO THE BENCH with this thing! I love it.
