Ok so I have a torn labrum in my left shoulder. I tore it 3 years ago ( confirmed by a recent MRI when I re injured myself) and I rehabed it myself as best I could back in the day just thinking I sprained something. Unitl a month ago I didn’t really have any issues other than an occasional pain here or there. I did some dips and it popped back open or tore worse. Now my shoulder is a wreck but is getting better pain wise but still bugs me. I plan to have surgury at some point in the near future.
Squatting with a Texas Power bar all the time really jacks up my left shoulder. Aside from the labrum pain I get wicked Biceps tendonitus. It doesn’t really matter how wide or narrow I hold the bar. Afterwards it feels like totall A$$ - only on the left side. I have tried front squats but anything over about 205 feels like a steak knife twisting in my front delt area.
I own an EFS YOKE bar already. I have been wanting to add a new bar in anyways but the shoulder is expediting the decision.
What I’m wondering is if anyone had any experience with the bars I mentioned in the title? I have used a Giant cambered bar a time or two so I get how the bar puts emphasis on the hips and lower back and legs. The Rackable bar is $300, the Spider bar is $469. I’m wondering if the handles are worth the extra $169. Do they simply just allows for an easier grip and or allowing one to not even hold the bar like the Yoke bar? Unlike some of y’all I’m not a broke college kid lol so money is not a problem. Is there another option that I’m not thinking of?
Thanks in advance for you guys’ inputs.
