Add 30 kg to your deadlift in 1 month with the Watson Shrug Bar!
The Watson Shrug Bar (also known as a Trap Bar or Hex Bar) is an absolute MUST for anyone wanting to build huge quad, hamstring and low back strength and get the whole body growing.
When deadlifting with the Watson Shrug Bar, the load is placed in line with the body rather than in front of it.
This means you stay a lot more upright and put more of the load onto the legs and less on the back.
The shoulder width, parallel grip on our Shrug Bar keeps the strain off the delts and allows you to concentrate fully on driving the weight up.

We give ours a lifetime guarantee – if you manage to break it, we will send you a new one – we have never had to do this yet!
