The Football Bar, originally designed to be used by American Football players with/recovering from shoulder injuries, to allow them to continue to bench and press.

This bar provides the facility to work with a near neutral grip, ideal for those with shoulder problems, and anyone looking to add some variety into their training.

The angled handles alter how the shoulder joint sits during the press movement (elbows tucked in on the bench press), and results in a more comfortable grip position which creates less pressure on the shoulder joints. Their 50mm diameter eases strain on the wrists as well.

This bar is designed for rehab and/or assistance work hence we advise using lighter weights, however the recommended max load is 150kg. This bar is not designed to be dropped on the floor, and doing so will void any warranty.

Love the bar!

We already have a swiss bar from strength shop and this is similar but thicker angled grips give a slightly different feel. Would buy again and delivery always prompt.

Excellent and solid

Had this bar for about 4 years now, it is so well built and comes in clutch if ever I have a tweak in my shoulder. One of my favourite things with it though is bent over rows, allows for really strict range of motion.

Good bar very versatile

I've had some shoulder issues, therefore I was in the market for a Swiss bar. I bought this bar instead and I'm very glad I did. The bar is light (as advertised) but well constructed. It is extremely versatile and I have used it for bench press, incline press, inverted rows and barbell curls thus far without issue. Muscle activation is definitely enhanced as a result of the wider grips and strain on the wrists is decreased as promised. Overall a really good bar for a reasonable price.

amazing ????

Absolutely changed my teaming no shoulder problems better range of motion clients love it too a must buy. ????????

Superb bar

i have the 27kg solid version. Absolute beast of a bar. Heavy and solid. The robustness outperforms other bars on the market. Brilliant bar for added variation on all rows and presses. I used mine to great effect when training around an injury when preparing for IPF Equipped Euro Bench in 2018. Massive help and training aid. I will be getting more strength shop specialty bars.
