Elite FTS Pro lifter Casey Williams works on Cambered Bar squats as a change up to his squat routine. Casey uses the cambered bar because of the much needed shoulder relief due to the bars shape. Squatting heavy with a 7ft barbell can take its toll on the shoulders, especially if your shoulder mobility and external rotation aren’t up to much.

The cambered bar allows you to have a grip that is around waist level. This takes a lot of the strain from your shoulders and gives them a break while still allowing you to get some heavy squatting done. The cambered bar forces you to be very controlled and deliberate with your movements.
