I've posted this on a couple other boards. Actually felt pretty good. The bar tried to swing on me about half way up (like it always does!)
I hope the vid embeds properly.

whats the benefit of a cambered bar like that?
400(335) Bench Press
600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
500(495x1) ATG Squat
365 Front Squat
consistency and intensity.
Cambered bars are fun. We used them a lot for good mornings back home. Sucks not having one!
That's a nice squat though. Anyone know what the difference between a cambered bar and a spider bar is?
The only problems with the camber bar are:
1. no center knurl. I solved this with athletic tape.
2. it has a lot of whip in it. You have to be a little less explosive than you might like to be, b/c it not only swings back and forth, it whips up and down. It makes stabalization interesting, to say the least.
The camber bar is awesome. It takes some stress off the shoulder and places it squarely on the low back and hips.
Its a rackable bar, not a spider bar.
i found a page on EFS detailing the spider bar. Kinda neat!
Looking very strong big Ron!

ben, do you have a picture of the bar Alan built you? Was the price going through him rather than just buying the rackable one from elite?
