    The buffalo bar on bench press has one primary advantage. It increases the ROM which increases the time under tension and the effort exerted to accomplish the lift.

    If you can lift "X" amount of weight with the buffalo bar, you will definitely get it with the bench bar.

    Also, the buffalo bar allows you to work the sticking point at the bottom if that is where you struggle--coming out the hole.

    Buffalo bars from i have seen are mostly used for squats as they allow you to hold the bar lower if you havr bad shoulders. But I would just get a safety squat bar or camber bar

    He is referring to using them on the bench



    The bar can also be used for squats and you are Correct is usually employed for that
    However it is a potent tool for bench

    If you want to up your bench start doing dead stop benching, pause benching, and rest pause benching.

    Yes those are good
    But they aren't going to increase your rom or force you into an awkward position like the buffalo bar

    You also can't just bench every week and expect good results... Period. Try some variation in the movements and bars

    Also:
    Floor press
    Board press
    Chains
    Bands
