Based in Pittsburgh, Pa., InventHelp is submitting this idea, MARTIN PRESS, to companies for their review.

While weight lifting is an important part of any physical fitness regimen, using a standard bench press may result in muscle strain or injury. That is exactly what an inventor from Chicago, Ill., was concerned about. As a result, he created a design modification to a standard weight bar that would alleviate the problem.

He developed a prototype for the patent-pending MARTIN PRESS to reduce the chances of shoulder and other injuries while bench pressing weights. As such, its ergonomic design allows a full range of motion for a weight-lifter’s arms, wrists and hands. At the same time it reduces stress and strain on the shoulders, wrists and elbows. Furthermore, it allows the user to target specific muscles while enhancing comfort and safety. It is also designed to withstand wear and tear. In addition, it is convenient, easy to attach and use and affordably priced.

The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “I hurt my shoulder lifting weights because my shoulder wasn’t positioned correctly on the weight bench,” he said. “I wanted to find a way to allow users to reposition their shoulders as they lift and lower their arms.”

The original design was submitted to the Chicago office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
