Training with the Safety Squat bar is a safer option for intense squat progressions or maximum load lifts. This bar is known to increase your maximum working weight when compared to the traditional back squat. Training with the Safety Squat Bar allows for shoulder mobility to be a non-factor in the squat. It naturally creates better pelvic orientation and bracing mechanics in most lifters. When we combine the safety squat bar with a unilateral movement, it allows us to work on muscle imbalances that may not be seen while working on bilateral strength. Safety bar split squat takes out much of the “negative stressors” but allows us to target muscles of the quad, hamstrings, ankle, glute, and core, which can have a direct carryover to field sports and improvements in running, jumping, and cutting.
