I was iffy to purchased this particular bar. Mainly due to its pricing. I never purchased any bar for such a price, but reviewing for a week, I was convinced. I got to say, it was worth every penny. It's a solid bar overall. The heaviness of it gives me a piece of mind that it is a durable SSB. The puddings are thick and comfortable on the neck and shoulder. The shoulder pads are in perfect distance from each other. It has great balance when squatting. I love the fact that it forces you to properly squat by keeping your back straight and you could feel good quads working out being focused.
Take it from me, I have chronic lower back pain do to multiple life threatening car accidents, including random occurrence with sciatic and a pinched nerve. With that being did, close to 10 years, I have not squat or deadlift. I only did leg press, leg extension, and barely any lounges.
With Bells Of Steel SSB, I am able to squat properly and do As to the grass and Lunges with barely any discomfort. I truly recommend this bar to anyone who wants to do Squats safely and properly.
As always, a very big thank you to BELLS OF STEEL [BOS] Team and their Team on Social media.
