This bar is a monster! Put on 1000 pounds and go to work! The special inner arc allows maximum comfort and minimum joint stress when performing most conventional exercises. This bar allows maximum range of motion over ANY straight bar to enhance total strength AND flexibility throughout the entire movement. Shrugs without the cage, behind the neck presses, extra deep incline, flat, and decline presses, bent rows like you’ve never felt before, T-Bar rows that don’t threaten the family jewels, and deadlifts that don’t skin your shins are just a sample of what you are about to experience with this exceptional tool! In our studio this is our primary go-to bar. The straight bar is used exclusively for Olympic lifts and power lift competition prep.
