Product Summary

The PRx Performance Safety Squat Bar is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for squats, lunges, JM presses, and more. It is designed to enable people with upper-body injuries to safely squat without stressing joints. The camber of the bar shifts the weight forward, so even though the bar is on your back, the movement will feel more like a front squat.

This bar has an impressive 1,200-pound weight capacity. It weighs 65 pounds and comes in a black powder coat finish. That finish gives the bar a sleek and unique look, but it’s worth noting that powder coats tend to scratch when moving in and out of j-cups.

Users find the padding to be comfortable. The handles are not knurled, but rather use a rubber grip.
