One aspect of the Bench Pull exercise that is often discussed is a limited range of motion, as the bench restricts the range of the stroke that can be achieved. This is a viable counterpoint for anyone who dismisses the Bench Pull as an exercise.
Recognising this, Iron Edge experimented with a number of variations to develop a bar that removes any issue of limiting range of motion. The final product allows the lifter to pull to a height above the top of the bench pad, without contacting the underside pad. This maximises scapular retraction and allows repetitions to move through the entire range of motion.
This Bench Pull Bar is specifically designed for the Iron Edge Bench Pull. Fitting Olympic-sized plates on to the zinc plated sleeves is smooth and seamless, meaning you can get started on your set quicker than ever before. The gap between the handles measures 420mm, allowing plenty of clearance on either side of the bench to protect the hands from jamming between the bar and the bench.
Use the Bench Pull Bar as your sole bar, or add it into your programming to supplement Olympic Bars, Swiss Bars, Fat Bars or Power Bars.
