The X-Series Swiss Press Bar was designed specifically for the bench press (as opposed to the log press).
This differs from a Multi-grip Swiss Bar because it is not specifically designed to simulate a log press. Because of this, the handles are not as long, so it does not offer the wrist stability needed when doing log presses. The variety of parallel and angled grips makes this a great bar for overhead presses, benches, triceps extensions, rowing, and just about anything you can imagine.
There are times in which you want to back off of your normal movement patterns (such as your competition bench grip) while working those muscles in order to give the body a break. For heavy benchers, a parallel grip may provide the break that their shoulder need.
The New X-Series Swiss Bar Weighs 65Lbs.
*The Swiss Press Bar is wide enough to fit in most racks.*
