The Body Revolution Olympic Shrug Bar, also known as a Hex Bar, is fast becoming a gym essential for building quads, hamstrings, mid-back and upper traps. The bar is designed to eliminate contact with the upper thighs and keeps the load in line with your body rather than in front of it. This lifting position allows you to drive heavier weights straight upwards so you can increase the loads on your legs, whilst reducing the stress on your lower back. Used for shrugs, dead lift, bench press, military press, squats and lunges. Made using heavy duty solid chromed steel, this bar has a maximum weight capacity of 250kg. It is designed to be used with Olympic 2" weight plates, and is not suitable for standard weight plates. Perfect for professional weight lifters, this Olympic bar will ensure you can practice with the competition standard equipment. It is an ideal addition to any serious proffesional or home gym.
