I know what it is, but i dont understand how you use them on bench,deadlifts etc.
Could anyone please explain or post pics?

If you were not able to sort through all of the linked info, what we do:
Bands: Start by placing a 4x4 on the floor, run a band under the 4x4, pull the band through itself, making a loop around the 4x4, put 2 95+lb DB's on top of the ends of the 4x4 and pull the long end of the band up to the bar. This set up is for a single band only, if you need to use more than one band, you will need to add a third DB to the 4x4.
Chains: Get your "weight" chains cut to 5 foot lengths. Measure the length of bar travel for the movement you are doing. Set the support chain or rope at a distance which allows all the chain, save a few links to be off the floor at the top of the movement, and on the floor at the bottom of the movement. I would suggest using rope for this, as it is: 1) Cheaper, and 2) adjustable so the same piece can be used for benching and squattting.
