If you’re looking to take your strength training to a new a level, or need to work around injuries, specialist bars can supplement your major lifts and add that essential element of variety to your training.
Specialist bars comes in a range of shapes and sizes to maximise natural grip position and train specialist lifts like those needed for strongman competitions. Not only are the majority of our specialist bars lovingly handcrafted here in the UK, but they are made with a true passion for strength training too.
Originating from the world of strongman, thick bar training is now being used by elite athletes, bodybuilders, sports teams and the military for superior strength results. With a thicker bar, more muscles are activated to produce far greater strength and muscle gains than with a standard bar. In the words of world famous powerlifter, Dave Tate: ‘once you go fat, you’ll never go back’.
Alternate grip bars
Bars like the X bar or angled grip box bars allow the user to lift with a more natural wrist and shoulder position than a straight bar. This is why they are not only useful for those suffering with injuries or reduced mobility, but also for anyone looking to optimise their positioning to get the most out of their lifts – often grip changes allow for increased weight.
