I remember it like it was yesterday...

I walk to the power rack with a barbell, I grip the bar firmly and set-up into the right position. I inhale deeply. I stabilize my posture and 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 and I'm leaning forward. I try to do my best but my knees fly from side to side. I bend the upper back and i am affraid because I do not even have the safety pins. I cannot throw the barbell away so 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 had just read about it. Then I bought it to my home-gym and tried it. I was so pleased to have the bar that I totally forgot that squats with SSB are much harder than with the classic bar. I warmed up with an empty bar. Then I loaded two 20 kg plates on the bar. Then two more and it almost crushed me me.

Squats with SSB are for „weaklings“?

This can be said only by those who do not know how the SSB works and who 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 notorious for their strength achievements. The women from this club lift more than 99% of average men are capable of and one of the reasons why is that they are using the Safety Squat Bar in training.

Improve your personal records and technique

SSB will strengthen your upper back and possibly enable you to 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. Individuals who have problems 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. 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.
