In my first Specialty Bar Car Show, you got to see the elitefts Power Bar, axle bars, trap bars, deadlift bars, Swiss bars, Duffalo Bar, and the elitefts Rackable Cambered Squat Bar.

In my second show, you learned all about the Tsunami Bar, Bandbell Bar, and Safety Squat Bars.

For my third and final Specialty Bar Car Show, I’m going to focus the entire thing on the best, most badass bar of all bars: the elitefts SS Yoke Bar.

It’s the most recent revision to the Safety Squat Bar, and let me tell you, if you’re going to spend your money on any specialty bar, it’s gotta be this one.

It’s the most valuable, most versatile, and it’s pretty much bulletproof. Dave Tate does not fuck around when it comes to equipment like this one.

The padding is replaceable, and you can unscrew its handles, too, so you can use it with and without handles for a variety of lifts. Plus, it’s pretty inexpensive for what it is, and it’s going to last you a lifetime.

Like the Safety Squat Bar I showed off in that last video, the elitefts SS Yoke Bar has pretty much the same features: it places the load on your upper back more, though the beauty of this bar comes from the handles. It forces you to fight to stay upright when you pull down really hard on those handles, which is fantastic.

I can’t recommend it enough. Seriously. This is the one. Go to and get this bar, then start looking at all of the other bars I talked about after that.

And by the way, feel free to insert specialty bars in programs. You can utilize any of these bars whenever you want, and feel free to use this video series as a guide if you’re not sure when to use a certain one.

But as I said, start with the elitefts SS Yoke Bar. If you want to be the best, use with the best equipment.
