Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Actually Allowed Me To Squat Again !! I'm 45 have had back problems, abdominal surgeries , and a knee that's due for social security. Oh yeah, I have a torn tendon my rotator cuff. Guess what, I can squat nice and deep with no pain. No belt either. I have to say I'll be buying one of these on the near future so no leg day will be without this bar. If making a home gym, this is a MUST HAVE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Shoulder Post-Op Two years ago my shoulder was operated on to repair a Cuff Tear. I was not able to squat with a barbell for 8 months. 3 weeks ago I got the other shoulder done. I was not going to wait another 6-8 months to squat. Tested the bar yesterday, after receiving.........perfect. I can start squatting as soon as I am able to load the bar. I shopped around and found other safety squat bars for less. I have spent in excess of $10,000 at Rogue over the past few years building my home gym. Rogue has never disappointed me. Went with Rogue quality in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar for shoulder injury! I bought this bar due to 3 tears in my shoulder and I was missed doing my squats. Now I can do squats with this bar due to the different hand position were on reguar bar I can not get my arm to hold the bar. I would recommend this bar for any gym or personal use due to injury.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Alright Bar works fine. I have never used a safety squat bar with this thin of padding. I prefer bars with much thicker padding. I can then hold onto the padding instead of the handles for a firmer set-up with the bar. It will be interesting to see what the bar looks like in a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squats were meant to be done with this bar! This is the absolute perfect bar to use for squats for anyone with any shoulder/neck issue. My right shoulder socket is busted limiting my range of motion significantly and i was always limited to front squats with barbells or the smith machine rear squat (which is really a no-no anyway). That is, until I noticed the Safety Squat Bar by Rogue and it is perfect from every angle. The bar is solid and I am sure as a result will be very durable, it looks great on my power rack, the padding for the neck and shoulders is perfect and any tension on my shoulders is entirely removed thanks to the location of the grips (in front and below shoulder height) and I can squat again normally! This is a must have for people with any shoulder or neck issues and has become a life saver for me. A friend of mine with no shoulder issues, who does not like squats with barbells due to his perceived sense of pressure it puts on his neck absolutely loves this bar and insists on using it when he comes over to my home gym. Mark Bell's video on how to get under the bar and using it for box squats is also very nice. All the speciality bars from Rogue don't need special collars either - so thats great. Minor gripe about some of the Rogue products is the paint does begin to peel over time, but I don't think this is unexpected when you have solid steel underneath. All in all, i give this bar 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's been a long time! I was injured in the military and subsequently retired because of it. One of my injuries including a back injury and because of this I have not squatted in a while... I received the bar today, in good shape, and I ran it through paces. Amazing bar, took a lot of pressure of my back- allowing my legs to tire out before my back! If finances allow it, this is a bar that should be in any serious lifters gym!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bar: just cosmetically coming apart I bought this bar in June. When I received it, the black paint was already coming off parts of the bar. I had to remove some of the black paint that was on the end of the bar as it kept flaking off. Otherwise this is a great bar. I am ordering another for my local gym so when I go there to workout, they have one to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver An amazing SSB! Very comfortable on injuries, very tough on the healthy. I love having this for injured and disabled clients. Being... technically, and pronounced as, disabled myself, this piece of kit is irreplaceable. But even on pain free days I love this for forced reps after back and front squats. Its not for the weakminded, however. This is a hard bar to master.
