WHAT IS THE OLYMPIC SWISS BAR?
The olympic Swiss bar was developed mainly for bench-press and log press,
but it has proven more versatile than that. the large variety of angled grips
makes this a very versatile bar for bench and overhead press and rowing and
triceps extensions. The Swiss bar is also ideal for the military press, skull
crushers, hammer curls and stiff leg dead lifts.
The swiss bar can be used when niggling injuries slow the progress of your
heavy bench press, shoulder press or rows. The range of angled grips can be
just the thing to take stress of the injury and allowing you to recover while
still continuing your work out sessions.
This olympic multi-function swiss bar allows a neutral hand position on
presses, curls, and extensions, rather than the traditional olympic bar, which
tends to deliver more stress to the shoulders. the variety of grip angles
allows you to target different muscles from different angles and so balances
out your muscle groups.
The 12kg total weight of the bar is in line with a traditional olympic bar to
make it easier to transition between the two. over-all length is 209cm
(82.25inches) to fit most traditional racks and the four different grip
positions are 15cm, 34cm, 56cm and 76cm apart. The sleeves are 36cm in length
