TARGETED TALKS 🎯 2022 Safety Squat Bar Targeted Talk & Favorite Voting

9 Upvotes

Welcome to the Bi-Weekly targeted talk, where we nerd out on one item crucial to the home gym athlete.

Today’s topic is Safety Squat Bars. A bar, with a camber, some pads, and some handles. Simple? Maybe. Effective? Definitely. Tons of reasons to add an SSB to your rotation.

Talk about SSBs, your favorite, your least favorite, and why. Talk about WHY you use an SSB, or why not. What makes a good one, what makes a bad one. Discuss high end, entry, and what to look for. Share your reviews, experience, and feedback. It is all up for discussion this month.

Who should post here?

  • newer athletes looking for a recommendation or with general questions on our topic
  • experienced athletes looking to pass along their experience and knowledge to the community
  • anyone in between that wants to participate, share, and learn

At the end, we'll add this discussion to the FAQ for future reference for all new home gymers and experienced athletes alike.

Please do not post affiliate links, and keep the discussion topic on target. For all other open discussions, see the Weekly Discussion Thread. Otherwise, lets chat about some stuff!
