Monster is right, this bar swallows your upper back. Amazing bar and great knurling. Takes some getting used to if you aren’t used to a comp squat bar of this nature. I compete in RPS so they usually have one of these bars or something similar. Practice how you play!
I own the Texas Squat Bar already! Love it! But I really needed the Monster Squat Bar because it’s virtually the same specs as the Bar I use in competition. This Bar is a beaut! Everything is perfect about it! It makes training easier for meets when the tools are the same! Love the 32mm shaft! Knurling is amazing sticks to your back and doesn’t move! Length is great! Doesn’t hit the uprights ever!
The quality craftsmanship from Texas Power Bars is second to none. I have the deadlift and power bars. The monster bar was exactly what I was looking for to improve my squat and bench. Thick and sturdy! A bit longer than I realized but it’s great!
This bar forces proper form on bench, row, and squats. If you're form isn't right, you'll know very quickly using this bar. It is incredibly thick giving a monster grip workout too. Makes my Rogue Ohio bar look and feel like a waste of money. 10/10 This is the best bar I have used in my life, it's better than Eleikos bar or anything Rogue if you're consistently moving 405lbs or heavier on every lift. The bar is so stiff it will not flex at all with 606lbs, barely any flex when loaded with 696lbs
This bar is everything it's advertised to be, and more. If you're a bodybuilder or powerlifter and don't own one of these, any of your competition that does has an instant natural advantage on you.
Best squat bar I’ve used! Zero whip in the bar with 1000+ lbs squats
