Product Features
  • Curved Design for Enhanced Biomechanics: The unique cambered curve of the Duffalo Bar reduces shoulder and wrist strain, placing the lifter in a more natural and ergonomic position for pressing and squatting movements. This design also helps protect the shoulders, especially for those with limited mobility.
  • Increased Range of Motion: The bar’s curvature increases the range of motion in bench presses and squats, providing a greater stretch of the targeted muscles while promoting deeper engagement. This aids in strength building and enhances muscle activation.
  • Grip Position: The bar's grip promotes a less demanding wrist position, reducing strain on the wrists and allowing for improved force transmission through the arms and shoulders.
  • Superior Stability: Designed to remain stable in the lifter’s grip, it minimizes the risk of imbalance or slippage during heavy lifts, ensuring safety and control.
  • Built to Last: Constructed from high-quality materials, the bar is suitable for repeated heavy use and is finished with a corrosion-resistant coating to ensure longevity.

Product Education

The Duffalo Bar was purpose-built to make squatting and pressing safer, easier to learn, and more effective for a range of populations from beginners to professional athletes. It has helped lifters around the world train movements traditionally executed with a straight bar with less joint pain, often allowing lifters to return to movements they had entirely abandoned after years of fighting shoulder or elbow discomfort.

For the Squat: The Duffalo’s proprietary bends allow for improved scapular retraction and reduction of stress on the easily-irritated biceps tendon in the shoulder. Reducing this direct strain on the bicep tendon coupled with increased back stabilization and proper joint centration via facilitated scapular function is a powerful combination for strength development and injury prevention. Additionally, our bar can improve the athlete’s ability to generate core stability due to the reduced mobility demands of the shoulder, preventing excessive spinal extension and encouraging spinal neutrality in a back squat rack position. Many athletes and lifters report immediate improvements in their ability to brace and maintain spine neutrality when using the Duffalo.

For the Press: The Duffalo Bar’s proprietary bends optimizes wrist angle when held in the pressing position. This positioning cues proper joint centration in the shoulder, while also improving both lat and scapular engagement. Users often report significantly reduced or completely eliminated shoulder pain while gaining an increased training effect from the Duffalo’s additional range of motion.

The Black Ice finish is a proprietary innovation that exemplifies our commitment to quality and performance. It combines multiple treatment processes to offer a finish that feels like raw steel, looks visually appealing, and provides enhanced corrosion resistance. This balance of characteristics makes it a standout feature in our product lineup, reflecting our dedication to continuous improvement and innovation in the manufacturing process. To maintain the Black Ice finish, it is important to reapply the Bar Sauce product as needed, ensuring the bar retains its optimal appearance and performance over time.

FAQs

Please read our FAQs page to find out more.

What is the difference between squatting with a duffalo vs. straight bar?

There's a very common occurrence when squatting with a straight bar, especially multiple times a week and it may not be what you expect. That is elbow, shoulder, and wrist pain/injuries. This is due to the large amount of mobility demand put on them when in a back squat position especially low bar. Which can lead to some big concerns. The duffalo will provide the same adaptations of a straight bar with significantly less joint stress.

Is the Duffalo bar specifically for back squatting?

In the squat category alone there is exponentially more we can do with the duffalo besides just back squatting. For example one of our favorite uses for it is front squatting. Loading potential tends to skyrocket when using the duffalo in comparison to a standard straight bar. Due to the Duffalos curvature and knurl it sticks to ones body exponentially better so we can focus more on loading and squat mechanics instead of struggling to keep the bar on our body. Furthermore its a fantastic bench pressing bar.

Can I use the Duffalo Bar for bench pressing?

Yes and we very much suggest it. The primary benefit to bench pressing with a duffalo is the significantly larger ROM it provides which has been shown in research to be one of the more important training factors when looking to create the best hypertrophic training stimulus possible. Furthermore the curvature of the bar itself tends to be much easier on joints especially when pressing heavily and or with a higher frequency.

What are the primary applications/benefits behind a duffalo bar?

There are many potential applications with using the duffalo bar. If we had to narrow them down to our top three they would be 1. To relieve the strain put on joints when in a back squat position. 2. To create a better training stimulus through a larger ROM when performing pressing variations. 3. Increase the loading potential of particular squat variations such as the front squat. There's significantly more applications for it but these three are amongst the most important.

If I cant use it for competition what is the point as a powerlifter?

As a powerlifter we squat, bench, deadlift with an incredibly high frequency and intensity. This can bring about some big concerns. Many lifters find themselves benching right after squats and end up going through pain, dysfunction, and compensatory movement patterns which pushes them to carefully analyze the bench asking themselves why is this happening? Well oftentimes the root cause of this issue is actually stemming from wear and tear put on joints in the back squat that gets even worse with a secondary or tertiary exposure to back squatting per week. The duffalo can help to significantly relieve issues like this. The curvature of the bar relieves the joint stress while still providing the same pattern, stimulation, and adaptations that are needed for competition.

Besides flat bench and back squatting, what else can I use Duffalo for?

For starters, every squat and bench variation out there. For example we love it for incline bench, decline bench, front squat, zercher squat, and much more. But getting away from squat and bench other variation examples include: All lunge variations, all OHP variations, goodmornings, walking zercher front holds, rows, reverse curls, skullcrushers, suit case deadlifts, suit case carries, and much more!
