So you’ve been in the gym squatting and benching like there's no tomorrow. Hitting all the PR’s. But all that huge weight you’ve been slingin around is beating up your shoulders.
Enter the Buffalo Bar. This is not just some super bent bar. The Buffalo Bar is strategically designed to alleviate stress from your shoulders while squatting, benching. A huge benefit of a cambered bar is that it is still very similar to a regular movement with a stiff bar, you even grip the bar like a proper squat but with significantly less pressure on your shoulder joints. Unlike a Safety Squat Bar, the Buffalo Bar can be used for upper body movements too!

Amazing, among the best purchases I’ve made in workout equipment.
This is highly subjective, but, from my point of view everything about this buffalo bar
is superior to traditional barbell when it comes to bench press training.
My shoulders have never felt so good doing bench presses due to the increased space created in the rotator cuff from the slight external rotation due to the curvature of the bar. Furthermore, I get an increased bench depth so I can train in bigger ranges of motion.
Better in safety of joints, and better in training in bigger ranges of motion. Also has an awesomely aggressive knurling to boot - much deeper grooves compared to my Eleiko performance barbell. Even the initial laying down on the bench, I don’t have to worry as much about hitting the back of my head.
This bar is very well designed and the build quality is fantastic, especially for the price. I highly recommend!
After 38 yrs of lifting my shoulders simply hate straight bar squats. Warm ups take as long as work sets. This bar changed that and makes squatting fun again. I've been using a SSB as well but this bar feels more like a standard squat. Super comfortable and beefy with nice knurling. Make sure your j hooks can swing in so you don't tip it over.
The packaging was a nightmare and the box came literally split in two with a bandaid amount of clear tape. That said, the bar was in perfect condition.
a) wrap a little ring of athletic tape on outside of center knurling so you know you are perfectly centered when you get under the bar.
b) I started warm up sets with my hands at edge of bar with light weight then slowly brought them in over time to find my most comfortable elbow / shoulder position.
C) first half of workout was to a box so I could get used to upper body position. After that felt comfortable, I removed box and worked my way down to full pause squats.
D) watch your fingers while racking weight and at bottom with safety bars!!!! Your hands will likely be wider than you are accustomed to and the bar sits way below your shoulders! Adjust your safety pins.
Excellent quality and price love this bar and recommended buying from strong arm sports great equipment
When I first got the bar the package was destroyed but I won't put that against strongarm since it was coming from Canada to New Mexico. Unpacked the bar and there was no damage on the bar. I've been using it for 2 weeks and can say it is definitely my favorite specialty bar at a great value without breaking the bank. I would highly recommend this bar for anyone still in the market for a buffalo bar.
Extremely satisfied with the bar. Was worried about any whip in the bar over 600lbs, but it is incredibly solid. Knurling is good, but not super aggressive. I also have the Strong-arm deadlift bar and have nothing but positive things to say about this brand, especially for the price point
Bought on Boxing Day - decades of contact sports and training heavy have been rough on the shoulders. this baby is a gem - everything i wanted from the first minute i unracked it. put 495lbs on it early this week and it felt…so good. Highly recommend in general, but particularly for those with shoulder issues. have used for BP and SP too…love it. Buy this bar.
LOVE this product!
A great bar from a great company! Came well packaged, no damage, no rust and well oiled when it arrived. This bar is just as great as other bars that are 3 times the price causing you to re-mortgage. Primarily I use it for deep bench, but I guess you can use it for squatting too if you're recovering from a solder injury :)
The StrongArm Buffalo Bar is an awesome beast of a bar! This is the bar I want to use all the time now. Good for the joints! It feels better on the back, shoulders and wrists for squats, good mornings, benches, overhead presses, and probably a bunch of other exercises as well (will have to experiment). The unique bend also challenges stability just enough while still staying within the regular exercise groove. Stay tight. Stay healthy. Get strong. Highly recommended.
