The StrongArm Camber attachment.
All of the reasonably priced dedicated Camber Bars we have seen may work well for the "camber" part, meaning the dropped weights, but tend to be pretty crappy bars, the part between the collars. Smooth, inconsistent knurling, or too small or too big diameter.
With this attachment, you can turn your own favourite squatting bar into a camber bar, and for a fraction of the price. A Rogue camber bar is $385 C (and has NO knurling at all) and their Pro Loc Camber attachment is $176 including collars that you might not need.
What does a Camber bar do? By lowering the weight, it changes the centre of gravity, moving it forward, putting more emphasis on your hamstrings and lower back. Think of it as doing both a squat and a "Good Morning" at the same time.
Another great use for this attachment is for overhead presses when you have low ceilings, like in a basement gym.
Ours are not the only such product out there, but at $119.95 a pair, they are the lowest price!
Excellent attachment and great price. Beats buying a whole new bar for sure.
Great piece of equipment, especially for the price.
I moved into a house with a low roof where my home gym is now set up and can now do over head presses again! Haven't even thought about other exercises do with it yet. But shipped super fast and seems top notch quality. Very happy. Thank you!
Just need to think of a way to hang them on the wall when not in use :)
I was looking for a camber bar. Only one I could find in Canada was Rogue but high cost. Read good reviews and decided to give these a go. I’m loving them. Threw them on a home made axle bar and perfect. Using on spinning collars different feel and great too. Goodmornings are happy with this. Buy them.
The equipment was in perfect condition upon arrival . Shipped quickly and has been added into my daily workout routine. Thank you
Great addition to my home gym. Would recommend for sure.
I can now do standing OHP in my 7' basement without putting holes in the ceiling. Fast shipping, great price, and quality product
Great option to add variety to your trainning. Transform your Straight Bar into a Cambered Bar. Transform your SSB into a Spider Bar!
I initially got these to be able to do military press in my basement (low ceilings), but I especially love these for squats. They feel strangely comfortable at the bottom of the squat, and even though I cannot squat as much weight, I feel they improve my form and stability.
Well constructed, fit my barbell snug, and take regular plates and collars.
Very impressed, wish I had them sooner.
It's not like a cambered bar.
Not at all.
Put these devil's device on a rotating sleeves.
You will shake.
You will be dwarfed by tiny pounders.
Sweat will run down your face twisted by swears and wonderful pain.
And humily will rise.
This is not a cambered bar. It's better.*
Really, I mean it. Those are so cheap to add to your gym.
With a good powder coating, works with normal collars (at least for me), and the shipping was fast and the box had wood inside to protect the package. A++
I have only but good word for my first buy at Strongarm... Just bought a house, so my next purchase will have to wait a bit, but I will certainly get some calibrated plates, a Buffalo bar, a deadlift bar and many other things too...
* If you want the exact cambered bar feeling, put it on a axle bar nor a "normal bar". It will be the same and a lot cheaper than the "real thing".
