I am going to get some new equipment and my first choice for now is a safety squat bar. I have seen these for as little as $219, and the exact same one going for $499 on another site. Anyway, my second shoice would be a cambered bar for goodmornings. My third choice would be a new set of bands (5 sizes). I’ve used my set for a year, but a couple of the bands have very tiny tears-a millimeter-in a spot.
Anyway, I also considered a manta ray or there’s some kind of front squat attachement out there. I’ve never squatted anything but a straight bar and I think the SS bar will help me in building my upper back for squatting.
Any suggestions such as where can I get any of these affordably? I’m in the Denver area and could save shipping if I picked them up myself. What are good prices? How would you rate each of these items for bringing up the squat?
