Top squat or safety bar?
- 02-27-2013, 05:19 AM
Arrived in a large box. No problems, no worries. I have to say.... with shoulder issues.. the weight of the top squat with the bar & weight will put pressure on your shoulders. I always squated with the bar low on my back. With the top squat... I have to learn to keep the bar higher up on my traps & neck which does give my shoulders some soreness. It goes away quick. Just have to man up & be happy I can squat again. I recommend you watch the video from the site, so you can see how they are using the device.

You dont have to do regular bb squats unless you are a powerlifter. Plenty of options ssb, bulgarian squat, smith machine, hack squat machine, real hack squats, deadlifts, front squats, trap bar deadlift etc.

Ive been working on my regular bb squat lately but once I get above 245 I feel my form gets alil bad and I lean forward with my lower back to much. Due to my lack of reach its very uncomfortable to try and keep straight without the bar slipping off my back going down to parallel. When I get some extra cash I think I'm gonna pick one up and use it for my heavier squats.

Just check out the video on it before you purchase. It is different than squatting with a regular bar. Check it out on u tube or the site itself. Plus I did do a little review on it on this thread if you want to check it out. I did have a friend give it a try this week, & he didn't like it. So just check it out before you buy.
