The Safety Squat Bar is an amazing tool to use in your strength training workouts. I use it with beginners, so they can focus on the basic squat pattern and build some muscle.
A standard Safety Squat Bar weights around 70 lbs on average. This is due to the handle and yoke that Safety Squat bars are known for.
The weight distribution is unique to this bar. Training with the Rogue Safety Squat bar is known to tax your anterior chain; the weight distribution falls between the front squat and the high-bar back squat to vary your power output training. This bar is a safer option for intense squat progressions or maximum load lifts.This bar is known to increase your maximum working weight when compared to the traditional back squat.
Because Safety Squat Bars weigh more than a standard barbell, they tend to be stronger than any other run of the mill bar you might find in a commercial gym.
If you have a choice between a crappy gym bar and a safety squat bar, pick the safety squat bar every day!
