The Strengthshop Cambered Bar.
Never heard of it? Well that's probably because it's one of the most underrated and underused bars in the fitness industry. If a gym has a Cambered bar then you know they don't skip leg day. Originally used by Powerflifters to help increase their squat numbers it's now making its way to the rest of the fitness world.
The Cambered bar is the perfect bar for adding variety to your squats. It's shape forces you to stay tighter in the bottom position of a squat more so than you would with a regular barbell as the center of gravity is shifted slightly forward and becomes unstable if you swing back or forward on the way up.
The shift in the bars center of gravity changes your line and shape just enough to make it a slightly different movement to a regular squat.
It can also be used to the same effect with the Bench press, making the load more unstable hence tougher to control and press off of the chest.
Great for adding a bit of variety and a few new challenges into any training program.
