    What are you using now?

    Do you have a power rack?

    Then db's are the way to go if you have them heavy enough. And if they aren't hex...use a small plate on either side to keep them from rolling.

    depends on whether you are benching or not. also you could just use 2 pairs of DBs if ya wanted, but they will increase the choke a bit

    we would lay one down, put the band around it, then stack another BD crossways on it if it wasn't enough weight to hold it down
    worked really well.

    If the bench you're using has a piece low to the ground, tie the two bands together and pass them under the bench to attach to each side of the bar.
