Don’t let stiff shoulders or achy elbows hold you back from squatting big weights ever again.

Designed for those with limited shoulder, elbow, and wrist mobility but beloved by powerlifters and garage gym champions everywhere, the Safety Squat Bar is the perfect implement for developing your quadriceps and posterior chain.

The high-quality, single-piece padding is dense yet comfortable, and it will always stay in place even during your sweatiest workouts.

The Safety Squat Bar is a magnificent tool to have in your arsenal, whether you have a pre-existing injury or not. It’s incredibly effective at developing the posterior chain, highly versatile, and arguably one of the coolest-looking specialty bars out there. Give your shoulders a break without having to go easy on the rest of your body with the Bells of Steel Premium Safety Squat Bar.

IMPORTANT: The SS3 is designed to fit perfectly in any Bells of Steel rack. If used in a non-Bells of Steel rack that is wider than 47” between the outer edge of the j-cups, the bar is unlikely to sit flat and/or might cause the j-cups to push inwards.
