Has anyone here used this technique with much success?

I just started using these techniques with "lighter weights" as accessory exercises to my heavy lifts. It is very different, to say the least.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the variations I am speaking of, let me explain. You hang weights, with resistance bands, from your barbell. As you push through the range of motion, the weights bounce around in independent directions, which causes a massive amount of muscle activation. Not only do your muscles experience the push and pull resistance that you usually put it under, but it also experiences oscillation as you are moving through your range of motion due to the weights moving around independently. Essentially any and all fibers you aren't recruiting to push/pull the weight are recruited to help stabilize the weight.

Here is a video that can help you in understanding the variation if you aren't familiar with it:
