Don’t let stiff shoulders or achy elbows hold you back
from squatting big weights ever again

Designed for those with limited shoulder, elbow, and wrist mobility but beloved by powerlifters and garage gym champions everywhere, the Safety Squat Bar is the perfect implement for developing your quadriceps and posterior chain.

The high-quality, single-piece padding is dense yet comfortable, and it will always stay in place even during your sweatiest workouts.

The Safety Squat Bar is a magnificent tool to have in your arsenal, whether you have a pre-existing injury or not. It’s incredibly effective at developing the posterior chain, highly versatile, and arguably one of the coolest-looking specialty bars out there. Give your shoulders a break without having to go easy on the rest of your body with the Bells of Steel Premium Safety Squat Bar.

IMPORTANT: The SS3 is designed to fit perfectly in any Bells of Steel rack. If used in a non-Bells of Steel rack that is wider than 47” between the outer edge of the j-cups, the bar is unlikely to sit flat and/or might cause the j-cups to push inwards.

  • My Fitness Goal Is: To be able to squat with weight on my shoulders, in spite of my loss of shoulder mobility over the years
SS3

Excellent, sits well on my shoulders, and the chain handles were the perfect length for me.

Perfect addition to our home gym

I missed doing SSB squats since starting to workout from home and I’ve been shopping for an SSB for months. I loved the price of this SS3 and the quality is great, the padding is better than the SSB at the gym I used to go and the handles are really unique. Highly recommend this product

Great bar

Got very quickly, and I like the long handles very good for the person with long legs.

  • My Fitness Goal Is: Longevity
SSB makes leg day not so bad.

I really like the feel of this bar. The sleeves are nice, as well as the price and delivery. The optional arms are decent because even if you don't use them they don't add to the cost. So far I have 3 bars from BOS!

SS3 barbell review

I really enjoy using the SS3 barbell. I have worked up to three forty-fives on each side with no problem. An added bonus is that my CAP spring collars fit it just fine, saving me 40 bucks
