On IronMind's site I see the cambered bar that they call a buffalo bar. How has this worked for anyone who has tried it out?

I use a regular bar, sometimes it bothers my neck or back, during squats. I am planning to use a trap bar, but then I noticed this buffalo bar.

Well, I thought it seemed like a good idea, the trap bar, since I do not have a power rack, and I train at home. There is only me in the house. What I need to do is get a power rack, but that costs something. Actually, I am thinking to build one out of timbers.

For back squats, the idea of a cambered bar sounds good. I've just wondered how anyone else liked one of them.

They are easy on the shoulders.

I've used one numerous times. I like it alot, it's really forgiving on your shoulders expecially if you squat low bar.

I love the bar for this fact. If your tight in the shoulders(which most of us are) then its the bar for you.
