The Buffalo Bar. Squat heavy without flaring up your shoulders and elbows.

Our all-new buffalo bar was built from the ground up and made to spec by multi-decade IPF powerlifting vet Mike Armstrong.

So you’ve been in the gym squatting and benching like there is no tomorrow.

Hitting all the PR’s. But all that huge weight you’ve been slangin around is beating up your shoulders.

Enter the Buffalo Bar. This is not just some super bent bar. The Buffalo Bar is strategically designed to alleviate stress from your shoulders while squatting, benching. A huge benefit of a cambered bar is that it is still very similar to a regular movement with a stiff bar, you even grip the bar like a proper squat but with significantly less pressure on your shoulder joints. Unlike a Safety Squat Bar, the Buffalo Bar can be used for upper body movements too

It’s the perfect bar for off-season training, and one of the best options to push up your volume in-season without doing any damage to your body or doing a completely different movement. Other than the Squat and Good Morning, the Buffalo Bar is great for the bench. With the Buffalo Bars signature bow in the bar, you will be able to add several inches to your range of motion. This will help to strengthen your press of the chest as well as assisting with muscular development.

IMPORTANT: The StrongArm Buffalo Bar is about 230mm/9” longer than a typical barbell — which is an extra 140mm/5.5” of space between the collars. Due to the added length and intentional bend in the bar, it will most certainly fit differently in your power rack. Most find that it works best with Nylon Sandwich J-Cups to avoid metal-on-metal contact and unwanted shifting.

Here are the improvements:

  • A better quality of steel
    Competition standard 29mm Chromium alloy steel.
  • Bigger and badder
    A full 92 inches, with an extra thick block and sleeves.
  • Nicer finish
    Mike’s a big fan of bare steel bars. Although more maintenance is required, they truly give the best grip and feel. The sleeves have a chrome finish for a polished look.
  • Aggressive knurl
    The Buffalo Bar features the same sharp knurling as found on our Barenaked Power Bar 2.0

This bar has helped me immensely on continuing to squat heavy without shoulder and elbow pain that I would get from the straight bar. It's a game changer on bench as well it really builds strength off the chest with that added ROM.

Warehouse visit and Buffalo bar

I visited the BoS warehouse in Calgary AB today and was really impressed, both by the customer service provided by Brandon, as well as the quality of the products. Brandon was really easygoing and friendly, clearly knowledgeable and experienced, and did not pressure me to buy anything whatsoever. I ended up purchasing 2 new 45 lb. plates and a buffalo bar, which I am really happy with. The prices at BoS are probably the most reasonable I have found for high quality equipment, and to support local is great. Thank you for for the great experience and gear! Adam
