Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squatting again! Just received my SB-1 yesterday and put it to use this morning. It was the first time in years I've squatted pain free. No wrist, elbow, shoulder, or knee pain! Very solidly built piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic complement to training I severely injured my biceps (rapture) 8 weeks ago. This bar has allowed me to continue hard training in a safe way. I will for sure continue to use this bar after my recovery since it is fantastic to do heavy squatting with it. I am normally doing Olympic lifts - this bar will be a key supplement along with front squats in the future. The bar is high quality - I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this bar! I just got my SB-1 and I LOVE it. Background: I'm 68 and haven't been able to reach around to grab the bar to do a squat in 12 years. OK, I should have done rehab, but I'm a bad patient. I like lifting but I don't like doing what I'm told. My son is 15 (yeah, I started late) and he wanted to start lifting. I needed to be able to do squats, so I bought the SB-1(after reading some of the reviews). I wish I had bought it 12 years ago! I'm squatting without shoulder pain!!! I won't reveal my current squat numbers, but they won't stay down for long now that I can squat regularly again. I had used a front squat harness, but it just didn't seem to be right for my (strange) body type and mechanics. I did a little research on "safety bars" before I bought from Rogue. Some had vertical bars (whatever they are called) that were wide apart. Well, I'm only 5'6", and my shoulders aren't that wide. The width on the Rogue bar is great! The bar itself is thick and heavy (heavier than my old old bar). I think I recall reading (too lazy to go back and look) that the coating could be chipped. If it does get chipped, who cares. It's the foundation that I care about and that is great. Oh, and the SB-1 is also great for GMs, too. So I'm rambling on. You get the idea. I'll be reporting on the MG-1 for my benching (again, no numbers!) when I get the chance. I'm planning on ordering the bands, too. I got some cheap ones from a seller on Amazon. From now on, I want stuff from guys who lift BIG, and know what they are selling. Cheers Lew (OK, I think I deleted the obscenities ... I have a potty mouth)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from safety bar we enjoy the bar except the handle pads should be thicker in circumstance to allow better fit across the shoulder blades . Can we purchase the back pad & add them to the two side handles . This extra padding would improve this bar 100%

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but..... I'm an older lifter, and I bought this bar because of mobility issues in my right shoulder. While the bar certainly helps with that, the thinness of the padding across my back makes it VERY uncomfortable for heavier sets (for me, that's above 300). On the other hand, I do feel leg day a lot more in the quads now than with a straight bar, it's easy to get balanced across your back, and overall stability feels better. Fix the pads and I'll recommend it.
