Features & Highlights

  • Powder Coat Finish – Powder Coat is a very common finish on specialty bars. It does a good job at limiting oxidation, but it does tend to show scuffs easily, especially on the sleeves and rack contact points.
  • Smooth, Long, & Angled Handles – The Edge Fitness Safety Squat Bar includes long handles with a smooth finish, which some people prefer, and others do not. The idea behind longer handles is that it promotes a more vertical spine angle and improved lat activation.
  • Yoke – This bar includes a traditional yoke with a vinyl-covered padding around the neck and shoulders.
  • Non-Olympic Sized Sleeve – The sleeves on the Edge Fitness Safety Squat Bar are not Olympic-sized, which means you will need specialty collars. My personal recommendation is Proloc since they can be used on any bar. They would very well and they’re well-priced.
  • 45 lb Weight – Unlike many SSBs, the Black Widow Safety Squat Bar weighs 45 lbs, which keeps math consistent with traditional olympic bars.

From the Manufacturer

The Safety Squat Bar is an excellent piece of equipment that offers a variety of benefits. It’s fair to say that a safety squat bar is in the running for best all-purpose specialty bar you can own.

Why is it such a great bar?

• Versatility. Our Yoke Safety Squat Bar can be used for back squats, good mornings, lunges, and more. There’s no shortage of possibilities with this bar.

• Safety and comfort. This bar features front yoke handles that provide support, and the balanced bar design keeps users stable throughout the exercise. Includes comfortable and durable neck and shoulder pads that sit comfortably on the upper back during use. Have shoulder, wrist, or elbow pain when squatting on a traditional barbell? The Yoke Safety Squat Bar is the perfect solution.

• Building strength. Cambered bar design is not only great for training the posterior chain but for your core and upper back as well.

We always recommend that gyms have at least one safety squat bar in their facility. It really is a great training tool.
