    Bow Bar Bench Video from today



    This bar changes the angle you hold onto it just a little bit and makes you go a tad deeper.

    the doubled light bands are pretty heavy though.

    Is that the same as a buffalo bar? It looks very similar.

    Nice grinder there Trav. If that were in our gym, Luke would have heard the crew yelling out "Two more!" That's a Mimnaugh classic.

    Yes it is. Our one for benching is broken right now. However we still call it bow bar benching for whatever reason.

    You are more than welcome to refer to it as buffalo bar benching if you'd like though
