    Thanks!

    Lets just say those sets felt like I had over 700lbs on my back, lol. It's probably the most hated bar in powerlifting. But, from what I hear, it'll make you strong! I haven't used it enough to tell, but I'm working on it. It really hits your mid to upper back. It sits high on your traps, so it really forces you to drive your head back and keep your chest up. Which is extremely hard, lol! I'm trying to go back to wide grip, low bar squatting and I think this bar will help me. A lot of guys use this bar wrong. Before they squat, they push up on the handles way to much, which takes away the purpose of the bar.
