Out of stockOur buffalo bar is designed to help you lift huge weights comfortably. The "Bow" in the bar and added thickness/length help to spread the load right across your back and shoulders making it easier to handle larger weights without the bar rolling around. Unlike a Cambered or Yoke bar it won't change the shape of the movement either. It's not only great for squats, it's shape lends itself perfectly to Hise shrugs, good mornings and lunges as well.
