The Barbell Strap
Please note, the version we have is the Tension Buckle Version. The Tension Buckle Version is the new design and is super strong. See the video at the bottom of this page for how this works. It can handle over 500kg and has an easy adjusting system. Also, the overall Barbell Strap length can be reduced a lot more than the chain's version, therefore giving the lifter more range of motion when doing hip belt squats.
The Barbell Strap attaches to any Barbell and allows the lifter to carry out a variety of exercises, including...
Deadlifts - The Barbell Strap offers a great alternative way of carrying out conventional and sumo style Deadlifts. Having the Barbell Strap across the shoulders takes the arms out from the exercise, therefore allowing those with arm or shoulder injuries to still carry out this exercise.
In this video below Larry Wheels shows you how to use the Barbell Strap for Deadlifts and its many benefits.
Good Mornings - This exercise is normally performed by placing the barbell across the back of your shoulders. It can be difficult to locate the Barbell in a comfortable position, especially for the lower position of the exercise. The Barbell Strap can comfortably and securely be rested across the back of your shoulders. Watch the video below for a demonstration.
Hip Belt Squat - This exercise is great for working the legs without putting any stress on the lower back. While this exercise can be performed with the Hip Belt Squat Machine, the Barbell Strap offers a cheaper alternative for performing this much-loved exercise. The Strap comes with a centrally located loop for attaching a Dipping Belt or Belt Squat Belt, making this a very simple exercise to set up. No need for boxes to get good depth, unlike when using the loading pins. Watch the video below for a demonstration.
Zercher Squat - The Zercher Squat is normally performed by placing the Barbell across the front part of your shoulders, which can be uncomfortable for some. The Barbell Strap adds a different spin to this exercise, with the Barbell Strap across the back of the shoulders, the weight is distributed across your back. Yet with the weight of the Barbell located at the front of your body, you still get Quad dominants similar to the Zercher Squat....perhaps this exercise should be known as the Repel Squat. Watch the video below for a demonstration.
