The Safety Squat Bar has an unusual shape however one used for the first time or placed on your upper back you will identify that this is a far more difficult bar to squat with than a traditional Olympic Bar. When using a Safety Squat Bar the first most noticeable feeling is the amount of forward pressure that is placed on the spinal muscles running down the centre of the spine. The exercise is a far harder one on the whole back as apposed to the Olympic Bar action. If you use the Safety Squat Bar regularly combined with alternative exercises with an Olympic Bar for example you will improve movement, exercise biomechanics, strength, performance and a general overall increased well being in your training action due to the new movement.
