Safety Squat Bar - 82" Long - Cambered - 400 lb Plate Capacity.
Free bar squatting presents a clear danger from the tendency of a heavily loaded bar to slide off the lifter's back during exercise. The center of the round shoulder cushions are located close to the body's natural center of gravity to reduce or eliminate this tendency. With the arms in front of the body during squatting, the lifter has much more leverage to control the bar as opposed to the arms awkwardly hyper-extended to the side, behind the shoulder center line.
The biggest advantage of purchasing this bolt-together safety squat bar vs. all others that are one piece, is the fact that the box it ships in is smaller than the UPS "oversize" threshold - which UPS charges an extra $55.00 surcharge in addition to regular shipping fees. If you can make do with a 400 lb capacity safety squat bar, you can really save big on the shipping.
Cambered yoke brings the center of gravity in-line with your body for better balance to concentrate more resources towards the vertical lift itself
