Salvador Vasallo (Corvallis, US)

The bar is important to develop the grip. I use it to perform squat, inclined paddle, dead weight, in which it is necessary to hang the bar with your hands. Unique warm. I recommend it.

Phat grip barbell

Wow, I really love this Olympic barbell. Always wanted one with a larger diameter grip for building forearms while doing other exercises. I've had other axle bars to use but this one has bearings and is just the most awesome piece of equipment I have in my gym right now. Thank you so much for making it. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade to a more functional barbell.
