The Strength Shop Cambered Spider Bar combines our Safety Squat Bar and Cambered Bar into one, with extra long handles.

It is a great way to add variation to your Squat training, and works great with box squats. The handles take the strain off your shoulders making this a great option if you have a shoulder injury.

The Spider Bar will primarily build your lower body, but it is worth noticing you must engage your upper back much more using this bar compared to regular Safety Bar Squats (and ordinary barbell squats).

Black powder coat finish.

The handles are attached to the bar by hammering securing pins in place which is much more stable than a screw in handle.

Max Load Rating - 400kg

*Please see photos on a guide on how to assemble the bar:
- Once you open the box you will see the main frame of the bar, 2 x handles, 3 x pads, 2 x securing pins
- The handles are labelled A & B which should match up to the frame as per photo
- The securing pin has a tapered edge, this is the edge that should be hammered in first
- Place the shoulder pads on the handles first
- Hammer the securing in through the hole on the main frame into the handle to secure them in place (please note this may take some force)
- Once this is done, slide the pad up and it is ready to use
Under no circumstances should this bar be dropped. It should be used on the back at all
times, and is not designed to withstand repeated impact on the ground.

Olympic Cambered Spider Bar

Awesome bar,

Truly humbling ,weight halved.
Can totally see how she will improve your squat massively.
Form has to be locked in,reccomend it 100%

Great bar with minor niggles, would recommend

Had a few quality control issues with my bar, but they swiftly resolved to a satisfactory outcome. The bar is v heavy, be prepared for that! Very solid, good finish and feels like a quality piece of kit at what i would say is a competitive price (a cheap and poor quality SSB can be £150 easily) Ref the functionality, i personally think this bar is a revelation for squatting and wish i had access to one years ago. Being v tall, i have some mobility issues which mean when i get heavier on front and back squats i do not always feel stable through my back angle and knees. This bar has made it significantly easier to keep my form solid, i feel safer and more able to squat heavy. No regrets.

5 star bar, 3 star padding

Firstly the bar itself is beautiful, weighs a tonne and is rock solid. Great finish with machined ends which help with any plate slippage. My only gripe is the padding which, given the balance of the bar being fairly far forward, puts a lot of pressure directly on the neck. I’ve solved this very easily by taping a cheap squat pad on top of the existing padding, 5 minute fix.
