    Best SSB!
    I really love this version of the bar. There's virtually no whip in the shaft with this tubing.

    Favourite toys #3
    This is a great bar, at a great price. It forces you to be honest coming out of the hole. I have found my weights have had to come down considerably due to the altered groove. At the same time I am feeling it in my quads much more than with Oly bar back squats as I am a fairly hip and glute dominant squatter. Great Value and swift delivery. Another winner from Strength shop!!

    Great Bar - High Quality
    This bar is of solid construction and was one of the primary items I wanted when opening my own gym. I'm not sure why more gyms don't use them (my guess is because they are not multi-functional so multiple uses are out of the question).

    It eliminates any issues with shoulder mobility as no hyper-extension is required. The bar will happily stay in place even if you don't hold on which means it is possible to load it up and go for a walk as well as simply squatting.

    It also allows the user to focus on their form rather than how the bar is sitting on their back which often immediately improves technique. If I had any issues it would be the central neck pad which, if it rotates and pops can be very uncomfortable. But that is more of something to look out for than a complaint. Just be careful when getting under the bar in the first place.

    Other than that, it is a fantastic piece of kit - highly recommended.

    Olympic Safety Squat Bar
    This is a very solidly built bar of quality manufacture, weighing 25kg. The sleeves rotate freely, it also has some good knurling either side of the shoulder padding if you want to hold the bar in a conventional squatting manner. The padding is of a strong construction, with plastic handgrips at the end of the handles. The bar comes in an attractive chrome finish. When using the safety squat bar, the emphasis is felt on the lower quads area of the legs, as the weight cambers out in front of you, forcing you to keep upright. The bar is really good for keeping correct squatting form for beginners or people with a tendency to tip forward during the exercise. Overall an excellent piece of equipment and a great addition to any gym.

    Saftey squat bar
    If your after a safety squat bar this one is possibly the best value for money in the UK. There are a few other companies also selling Safety Squat Bars at the moment in the UK but two of them appear to have got the angles of the camber totally wrong (and are over priced). The idea is for the weight to camber out in front of you forcing you forward and there for teaching you not to fall forward in the bottom of the squat, if you look at the picture of the strength shop SSB you will notice this camber angle, which shows strength shops understanding & quality to this product. These bars are also good because they stop you having to always have your arms held in external rotation when squatting. If you have shoulder problems , just squat regularly and want to change the exercise slightly or you are falling forward coming out the hole I would recommend a Safety Squat Bar. These bars are also great for Goodmornings which may improve your Deadlift strength.
