Cambered Bench Bar For Low Bar Squats


Has anyone every used a cambered bench bar to do low bar squats? If so how did they like it?


Cambered Bar would serve much like a Buffalo bar for this, I think. So seems fine if you can fit.

I started low bar recently, and the challenge was more shoulder mobility for me. Making it easier with such a bar would just make it an better leveraged squat (for me anyways).

If you don’t need to train for a meet, or have shoulder issues, or just plain want to save your shoulders, seems fine.


The buffalo bar has a much more gentle camber than a cambered bench bar. This would be more akin to a cambered bar used for squatting, in the sense that there would be greater instability to contend with.
