I remember it like it was yesterday...
I walk to power rack with barbell, I catch the bar firmly and set-up into the right position. I inhale deeply. I stabilize my posture, lift the barbell from hooks. One step back, another and one more to get ready, exhale and inhale deeply to stabilize again. I tighten every muscle of my body and get deeper and deeper to squat. I push my knees out and focus on sitting back. With the perfect technique I slowly get lower. But something is wrong. The barbell is too heavy for me. I'm moving forward. I try to do my best. The knees fly from side to side. I bend the upper back. I am afraid. I do not even have a safety pin. I cannot throw the barbell away. I try even more and with a rustle, I finally get to the upright position. Ufff.
I return the barbell to the hooks and I'm glad I'm still alive.
This was the first testing of safety squat bar. Until then I have just read about it. Then I bought it to my home-gym and tried it. I was so pleasant to have the bar that I totally forget that squats with SSB are much harder than with classical. I had slightly warmed up with an empty bar. Then I had loaded two 20 kg plates on the bar. Then two more and it almost overpowered me.
Squats with SSB are for „Pussies“?
This can be said only by those who do not know how the SSB works and never tried to work out with it. However, the Safety Squat Bar was originally used by the most powerful lifters of the Westside Barbell club - no pussies. The women from this club lift more than 99% of average men are capable of and one of the reasons why this is so is using of Safety Squat Bar in training.
Improve your personal records and technique
SSB will brutally strengthen your upper back and fix the squat technique. Stagnant trainees will add a new incentive into training to regain strength of muscles. It is great to use SSB while learning the squat technique. Who has the problem holding the straight bar while performing squats will not have it with SSB. SSB suits well to rigid trainees and also to trainees after shoulder/arm injuries.
Be careful! To make the Safety Squat Bar work as it should it must be properly curved at the ends and have the right angle of the backrest. Only in this case the lifter brutally leans forward. This activates and strengthens the upper back and additionally it forces the lifter to perform the squat with the correct technique, otherwise he would fall.

PositivesSuper je, že je osa vyvážená na 20 kg, nemusíte nic dopočítavat jako je to u jiných SSB.
NegativesPolštářky by mohly být lepší kvality a hutnější/tužší (jako mám na druhé ATX safety bar ose)
Negativespolstrování by mohlo byt jako jeden kus, obcas nedrzi spravne
NegativesBylo by lepší, kdyby méně pružila
Positivessuper osa jako všechny od STRONGGEAR
PositivesDecided to try out safety bar for assistance work and it's been a great experience, just adjusting myself a bit, since I'm used to low bar.
