The SquatLift Bar (also known as a trap / shrug / hex bar) combines all the benefits of the squat and the deadlift whilst eliminating all their negatives.
The slight angled handles provide a far more comfortable gripping and shoulder position that, combined with a more efficient body position, allows you to handle more weight compared to a straight bar deadlift.
The weight sleeves have been made extra-long to accommodate many plates, especially the thicker bumper plates that take up more room.
Squatting causes the torso to bend forward, which is exaggerated in those with long legs, and this places too much mechanical stress on the lumbar region. Deadlifiting demands excellent technique to eliminate issues such as upper back rounding and stress on the lower back. Furthermore, a lack of mobility and/or just not having a good body structure for these two lifts will result in either injury or a rejection of the exercise altogether.
The SquatLift Bar deadlift , by contrast, resolves these issues since there is no bar to get in the way of the shins. This results in the weight being more closely centred to the hips which reduces sheer on the spine. Furthermore, more knee bend can be achieved since there is no bar hitting the shins, allowing a movement more akin to a squat.
The SquatLift Bar is also great for bench pressing as the angled handles, used either way, reduce the excessive pressure in the shoulder joint that a traditional barbell can induce. This exercise needs to be performed from safety arms/pins to avoid contact with the head on the frame.
Bent-over rows are another great option with this bar. Just like when deadlifting the SquatLift bar, the weight is more closely centred to the body, which results in a more effective line of pull. The lats get a more intense stimulation since there is no bar hitting the body like a barbell row.
Even overhead pressing can be performed; again with the bar starting on the safety arms/pins, and is less stressful on the shoulders due to the angled handles.
Strongman training can be performed as the bar acts as an excellent as a Farmer’s Walk tool. Load it up, pick it up and walk.
