The Alpha Commercial Fitness Swiss Olympic Bar has been engineered to be used as a multi-purpose, dual grip pressing bar. The bar has both narrow and wide-grip neutral pressing handles and angled-grip pressing handles. The neutral grip is great to relieve pressure on user’s shoulder muscles when performing heavy presses.
The Swiss Bar (sometimes known as a ‘Football Bar’) is a great variation to training with Olympic bars and is great for training chest and triceps using pressing exercises. It can also be used for hammer curls, forward shoulder raises and neutral-grip, bent-over rows.
The Alpha Commercial Fitness Swiss Olympic bar is one of 5 Core Primal Strength bars and the range has been designed for use in any sports facility, commercial gym, PT studio or home. It has a Matte Nero powder-coated finish and is suitable with all Olympic-sized discs. We recommend using the Swiss Bar with our Primal Strength Premium Rubber Olympic Discs, Coloured Virgin Rubber Bumpers, and our Nero Grain Bumpers.
The Alpha Swiss bar has a 3-year weld warranty and a 1-year bar warranty; the warranty is only valid if the bar hasn’t been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, poor storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes dropping the bar on a bench, spotter arms or non-rubberised J-Hooks in a power rack, or excessive dropping with poor quality bumpers plates/rubber/iron plates.
