The Olympic Squat Bar has been designed to prevent excessive hip flexion and knee stresses when performing squatting movements. In addition to this it provides those athletes with limited chest and shoulder mobility a comfortable alternative to a regular back squat.

Handles at the front of the bar reduce shoulder strain and the design of the Safety Squat Bar allows you to let go completely of the bar and it will stay securely positioned with the load spread comfortably over the 3 pads.

The Olympic Squat Bar is constructed from 30mm solid high tensile steel. This bar will handle over 1000lbs. The weight of the bar is 47 lbs.

In addition to regular squats, this bar can also be used for,

- Squat
- Box Squats
- Suspended Squats
- Good Mornings
- Zercher Squats
- Walking Lunges

A "Must" for those with Shoulder Impingement

I have a partial tear in my rotator cuff and have been unable to squat for the past three years (impingement prevents me from getting my shoulder back to hold the bar.) The safety squat bar allows me to squat pain-free. The bar is well balanced and comes with dense neck and shoulder padding. I am extremely happy with this purchase and highly recommend it for anyone with shoulder issues or even for those concerned about safety when squatting. This squat bar allows you to load on the weight with confidence. I'm back to squatting once again and I couldn't be happier!

Safety Bar

Love the safety squat bar. It’s very comfortable, makes squatting enjoyable again.



This is a great deal for the price. Previously was using The Rogue SSB before Gyms closed with 600lbs +. Actually prefer this bar. It is pretty solid. The Padding is comfortable. Going to be putting this to the test with 600-700lbs. (has a 1000lbs capacity) So far extremely happy and glad I purchased this. Only one small criticism and similiar to all SSB brands/models (I've used) is the bar sometimes slides in the groove of the foam pads, So just applied electrical tape to keep in place. Minor problem, But every SSB brand, I've used had the same issue (have tried 3 different brands) Looking forward to hitting some heavy SSB squats and Good-morning variations. Very happy with purchase, quality and can not beat this price.


Decent Safety Squat Bar

This is a decent safety squat bar and a cost effective alternative to the $400+ models out there. The padding is decent and sits well on the shoulders. You'll have to adjust your j-hooks a bit higher than on the barbell squat. It is balanced, but not well enough to be hands-free like you see with some more expensive versions. Personally, I don't think this is a big deal. I've had upwards of 450lbs on this bar and it has held up well.
