Our Swiss training bar (an alternative to our Football bar) offers great variation in your pressing movements and has been built to withstand a lifetime of heavy duty commercial gym use. Because of the completely neutral grip position this bar can have great carry over to log pressing movements and help build strong triceps when used in movements such as skull crushers. The bar offers three grip widths and it's the perfect bar for many pressing and rowing movements making it a versatile bar to have in your collection.
This bar puts great emphasis on stability during pressing movements and puts the triceps under more tension than other traditional weightlifting or powerlifting bars.
HOW IS THE BUILD QUALITY?
When you choose a Swiss bar you should be looking for something that has plated weight horns and is heavy in construction indicating high grade steel that has been used. This is true of our Swiss Bar.
All of our speciality bars have nickel plated weight horns. This is a high quality, hard wearing finish that, whilst aesthetically pleasing, is also much more resistant to scratches and rusting than cheaper powder coated alternatives.
Our Swiss Bar includes knurled handles as standard which offers a significantly improved grip making for more efficient training
