Squat more weight pain free with the Cambered Squat Bar!

 

Introducing the Watson Cambered Squat Bar – Type II: Designed to help push your squat to new levels!

 

The design of the Watson Cambered Squat Bar – Type II means the centre of gravity is lowered and brought forward. This has the effect of taking load away from the upper back.

 

The camber (or ‘drop’) itself is 360 mm in length and the bar is long enough that it can be used in a regular Power Rack.

 

This is a great bar not only to work the squat with, but also exercises such as good mornings and zercher squats as shown below.

 

The Watson Cambered Squat Bar – Type II is easier to hold than a regular bar which helps reduce shoulder strain. Heavy centre knurling across 300 mm helps keep the bar locked firmly in place.

 

2 versions of this amazing bar are available: The basic version will easily handle weights up to 260 kg. Our heavy duty version will handle over 500 kg!!

Cambered Squat Bar - Type II

Reviews

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    At 6’7 I’ve always had problems squatting. I was always leaning forward and often pulled my lower back. With this bar I can stay upright and find squatting much more comfortable. For the first time in all the years I’ve been training I now look forward to and enjoy squatting!
    The build quality is excellent and this is really strong bit of kit.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is a good alternative squat bar. The initial times of using seemed to be heavy on the back musculature with soreness the days after but quickly adapted after a few times out. The different hand placement is comfortable and the thick bar that rest on the traps means is more suited for people who have already built up there body fist. By that don’t mean you have to be a Mr universe or something but if you struggle with a regular barbell and/or rely on sissy barbell pads forget it until you’ve manned up and taken some time slowly getting used to the more traditional exercise first.

    I have the re-enforced version that can be seen in use by Terry Hollands in the video above. These have extra metal work and the two angled part by each shoulder/very upper arm helps to lock in the exercise in a bit more than regular style squatting.

    Can also be used in the lift off saddles/hooks of full or half power cages for standing shoulder pressing. Though on the re enforced bar, the grip spacing is limited to narrow. The lowered weight adds a little more balance issues for when pressing overhead, but has a good fell through on a slightly different strength curve.

    Because the loaded weight is lower to the ground in either the squat or press, the use of chains become ideal also because most of the weight starts on the floor in the bottom of the movement (how it should be), compared to most of the weight still off the floor with the tradition barbell style.

    Of course, this bar will stand up to many, many beatings and last many years.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    For me, the Cambered Squat Bar Type II is the best bar for basic squatting.
    Over the years I have owned the following Squat Bars:

    – a Cambered Squat Bar Type I
    – two different Buffalo bars
    – 3 different Safety Squat Bars
    – Peary Rader´s Magic Cercle
    – a Front Squat Harness

    but the Cambered Squat Bar Type II works best.
    The Center of gravity is very low so you are in a stable position from the beginning and the bar does not roll around on your back but remains where you put it. In addition, the bar is very easy on your shoulders.
