The Edge Fitness Slim Football Bar is an angled, multi-handled swiss bar with several hand positions and a slim frame for improved range of motion.

I have owned and used this bar for years.

Features & Highlights

  • 3 Grip Widths/6 Total Grip Options – The Edge Fitness Slim Football Bar offers three angled grip widths spaced 8″ apart at 7.5″, 15.5″, and 23.5″. By flipping the bar over, you can access the opposite angle, giving you six total grip options.
  • Slim Profile – The main frame of this bar is only 7″ wide vs. ~10″ on more traditional swiss bars. This allows for improved range of motion and overall less wieldy bar.
  • Rackable – This bar is rackable and will fit standard racks.
  • Sleeve Length – On the Slim Football Bar, you get a sleeve length of 13.3″, which is in the wheelhouse for this style of bar.
  • 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.
  • Non-Olympic Sized Sleeve – The sleeves on The Edge Fitness Slim Football 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.

From the Manufacturer

The bench press is a staple exercise in most fitness regimens. Problem is, using a traditional barbell over time can place unwanted stress on the wrists and shoulders. This leads to potential injury. What can you do to reduce this risk? The Football Bar is a great solution.

  • Bar design places your hands into an angled position during use, greatly reducing stress on the wrists and shoulders.
  • The majority of football style bars on the market today are simply too wide for their own good. Our sleek, slim bar design offers a 7″ width compared to the standard 10″ bar.
  • Narrower width makes the bar more versatile because it’s less cumbersome to use. Much easier for exercises like curls, skull crushers, etc.
  • Offers the user six unique hand positions.
