Hi everybody our gym is getting better and better we have a Fatbar !
Now iam dreaming of an SWISSBAR :
Does anybody here have one or even better has anybody build one!!
I would appreciated very much if someone could give me measurments.
Ummmm... I dont know if i would trust anything other than machined metal over my neck. might as well just buy one from
that way you know it wont get fucked up.
Is a dope bar though. great for OH pressing from my limited experience.
i would loves to buy it from eliteft...
now comes the "BUT"
i live in germany and shipping alone would be 600$!
so iam trying to build one
My gym has one from EliteFTS. It's a nice variation. I found that it was particularly hard on my triceps and wrists. You have to engage a lot of wrist and forearm muscles to stabilize it because it wants to keep turning over in your hand forwards or backwards.
why would u ever need 18 chains...
I have one from west cary barbell (great custom equipment manufacturer based out of NC)http://westcarybarbell.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=21(If your wondering, Joey Smith happens to be the one pictured on the site)
Awesome bar, spacing is just right.I use it for all kinds of pressing and rowing stuff. I'm a pitcher so it allows me to take it easy on the shoulder too.
I used one of Tom's when he came to lift at my gym some months back. He did a great job fabricating it and the thing really hammers the triceps on pressing variations.
shitty deal. I wonder if there would be any european suppliers of strength equipment?
