If you're interested in buying a 32 MM best squat bar in India, Bullrock Fitness has probably the only option for the most part right now. But wait a minute, why squat bars, why anyone would go out and buy a specialty bar for squats? 😀
I get it as a home gym owner, or a commercial gym owner. Squat bars is not going to get a ton of use considering it’s going to be worked into the rotation of many other barbells.
But with having a squat barbell, it’s about going that extra mile!
✔️ The BullrocK Squat Bar is 2400mm long, which eliminates hitting the rack while racking and re-racking, decreasing mental effort.
This specialty powerlifting style-bar features a 32mm shaft diameter, aggressively knurled on the full shaft. A thicker bar means more contact area with the back, preventing it from rolling off.
👉 It is an excellent choice for most elite lifters who go that extra mile to lift weights.
In this barbell review blog, I am giving you a gist of what squat bar is, and should you buy one that bullrock Fitness offers in India? Because they’re actually fitting for a lot of people where they’re not going to necessarily break the bank. 🏦
👉 Squat Barbell is very differently made to powerlifting bar, which covers all. It focuses on supplementing the maximum advantage to a lifter who does JUST squats exercise.

➡️ Especially if you compete in a Federation like the IPF, which is very popular these days and uses specialty bars, when it comes to squatting and deadlifting or a traditional power bar when it comes to benching, so it’s great strength equipment there.
For a lot of people that might not necessarily have that old-school stereotypical powerlifting style look or mindset about them.
And I want to talk about that because even though I think that’s who this bar was initially intended for, it actually benefits normal lifters like yourself and myself.
I think the thought here was to allow bigger lifters with poor shoulder mobility to kind of set the bar appropriately and not worry about any kind of shoulder issues.
Especially if they are in a really tight suit or just out of shape and can’t really move their shoulders that well. ❤️
👉 35 MM shaft diameter feels great on the back because it’s a bigger bar, and it’s super aggressively knurled throughout the shaft. Most people prefer a girthier bar on their back, so there are more points of contact on the knurl. It’s just something that heavy squatters need the most time.
👉 The fact that it’s wider typically is a problem solver for a lot of people in like power racks which are normally 49 inches wide and those people who might have trouble banging the uprights on squat walkouts. You will never have a problem with a squat bar.😁
The shaft itself is also longer, and that allows for bigger people who tend to be squatting that much weight can fit their hands comfortably because they tend to prefer a wider grip.
👍 You can fit more on the sleeves because the sleeves are longer, so this bar is meant for people that are squatting a lot of weight. Either 300KG, 400 KG, OR 500 KG, so in order to fit all that weight, the sleeves need to be longer. If you’re not using competition-style powerlifting weight plates so that’s why they’re there.
👉 My first impressions are really good. However, for most people, it’s probably not going to make sense. When you compare this to a normal barbell, it dwarfs it, and it’s almost comical when placed side to a powerlifting bar.😁
This being girthier, as well as several inches longer. Bullrock 32MM squat bar in India, for example, is about 94.5 inches, so this barbell is about 6-7 inches bigger than that 3 MM thicker and that’s really thick to try to put that into comparison.
Think about a normal Bullrock powerlifting bar being 29 millimeters and equate that down to 2 millimeters less, a 27-millimeter deadlift bar which feels like a thin pool noodle in this instance we’re talking about a 32-millimeter bar to a 29-millimeter bar a 3-millimeter difference, or if you want to compare this to a deadlift bar, that’s an 5-millimeter difference.
➡️ So it would be right to say Squat Bar is massive.
Should you buy a squat bar over, let’s say a Bullrock deadlift bar, over a Bullrock safety squat bar, or over some other type of specialty bar? Truly, that’s really going to depend on your training.
If I would probably make an opinion, there are other barbells to get first but given the fact that if you compete in a Federation that uses one and if you are looking for the best barbell for your power rack or a rack that you hit the uprights on frequently walking out, I think it’s more of an entry-level Squat barbell👍 to have that’s a really great training tool and actually works out really well. ❤️
Other Blogs to Read on Squat Bar:
👉 As you gain strength, bar thickness becomes more important for heavier lifts like squats, deadlifts, and bench press. Squat bars have a larger diameter of 32-35 MM among any barbells found, which enables it to have virtually less whip/ bend.
Since squat barbell are made longer, and thicker. Their weight largely differs from other powerlifting bars. Where all Olympic bars, powerlifting bars are of 20 KG, squat bars especially from Bullrock fitness in India, weigh 25 kg.
Black zinc provides you the best feeling that is near to a “Bare steel” experience. Also, it gives a better knurl feel experience bar. It’s not my favorite coating because it tends to turn green a little over time. It also has the tendency to fade over time, which I’m not too concerned with being a single user here.
Yes, SSB is more harder to use than barbell. For beginners, the safety squat bar is somewhat higher than a regular bar, and the camber pushes you forward, making you to struggle to stay upright. As a result, you’ll be somewhat more upright than in a high-bar squat and significantly more upright than in a low-bar squat.
The Center knurl is important for squatting because it keeps the bar in position on your back during back squats and on your chest during front squats.
