Safety Squat BarSB-SSB
The American Barbell Safety Squat Bar offers a range of training benefits and is an excellent tool for building overall strength and stability, as well as max-load lifts. It is suitable for athletes with limited mobility, shoulder, elbow or wrist limitations, as well as those in recovery/rehabilitation. With regular use, expect to also see gains outside of the squat - namely in your deadlift. The safety squat bar is great for all types of squats, lunges, good mornings, Zercher squats and back raises. It is also an excellent tool for training the posterior chain.

Bar is well built, but pads are smaller then the picture and tend to slide down. I wouldn’t recommend this bar for a beginner as the angle of the camber tends to pull you forward excessively. If you don’t constantly push on the handles they get in the way and you can’t squat to depth. You really have to push into the handles to keep good posture, so you need to constantly push into the bar the heavier you get.
Hi Uri, We appreciate your review and would love to chat more on this. We will be reaching out to you shortly via email. Thanks, Britnee
Pads not big enough. The extended arms were shorter than expected.
This bar is fantastic!!!
I ordered the Safety Squat Bar because of my arthritic shoulders. I am a 71 year old former power lifter who really can no longer hold an Olympic Bar in place on my shoulders in the normal way. I currently am a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and wanted to get back to some serious squatting. The American Barbell Safety Squat Bar is just what I needed! I particularly like the position of the handles in front of the bar located around the waist area. That positioning takes all of the stress off of my shoulders, elbows and wrists. Great Job American Barbell!!!
