"For strong overhead pressing strong triceps are essential. Repboards are a great tool for really increasing power in your triceps.
I'm sure this will be the tool that helps me take my pressing to the next level. Also I am currently recovering from a detached
long head bicep tendon and feel that benching with Repboards will help me lift heavy weights without aggravating the injury."

"So you’re at the gym and your program calls for board presses.It’s already a pain
in the ass enough to ask some random person to offer a handoff, let alone to ask
yet another person to come along and hold the boards in place. Sure you can use
your own boards and place them underneath your shirt and hope they stay in
place, or you can even use a mini-band and wrap that around them, but nothing is
guaranteed and it’s often a cumbersome cluster****. Repboards are handy little
tool that allows one to utilize 1,2,3, and 4 board presses without all the

"Anyone who follows me knows I like to do a form of board pressing when
doing bench press, this is to save any rotation in my shoulders, which
with big weight can cause serious "un-necessary" issues. Easily
rectified by having a couple of Repboards on your chest to bench too. Its definately safer and more efficient that using wooden boards.
Training with Repboards is going well"

"Repboards are easy to use, secure and comfortable and worked like a charm. They would work great for anyone, but especially those that train alone or with limited training partners.
I did mess around with the Repboards, putting them together and pulling them apart and thought it worked great and was a superb idea"

"Great product, I was sceptical at first that the Pro Repboards wouldn't be suitable with lifting the kind of weight I'm benching off wooden boards, but after lifting 230kg my doubts were put to rest. I can see this doing really well in commercial gyms, where carrying blocks of wood around in your gym bag just isn't practical"

"I'm a HUGE fan of partial training...it's extremely powerful for overloading the muscles and especially the connective tissue in order to overcome plateaus in your training. When you overload the body in a shorter, stronger range of motion, it carries over into increased full-range strength. And that's where board pressing comes into play with partial bench pressing. With a board press, you have a partner hold boards on your chest while you lower the weight to the boards then press off. If you don't have a partner, you have no good way to do this extremely effective style of partial training. With the Repboard, that problem is SOLVED. The boards are attached to you, allowing you to perform board pressing without a partner and reap all the benefits!"

"I never did board presses till I started competing in bench press meets. Board training is great and can really help with those sticking points. I also use boards for my benching when I am doing my bodybuilding training. I was introduced to Repboards a couple of months ago and absolutely love them. One problem I have found in the past is when you do board training you are dependent upon others to be present to hold the boards for you. With Repboards you are no longer dependent upon others. This is a great product, they are well made, the owners are great to deal with and the customer service is awesome"
