It seems that one would be able to push with more force with some added band tension.

Which directly causes negative acceleration. June 2, 2012 at 5:01 pm #48342 maxwkwMember True, but using bands or chains forces you to accelerate through the movement to finish the rep. So even though the bar may slow down the amount of force should remain constant or increase as the tension increases.
