i was going to get and e-z bar to do bicep curls, as it takes the pressure off your wrist unlike the strait bar. This bar has the same part as the e-z bar for curls with the added bit in the middle for doing triceps, which works out as great value for money.

What a great piece of equipment this is. I was looking for a bar to make doing upright rows and lying tricep extentions easier on my wrists. If you use a standard straight bar, it tries to pull your wrists at all sorts of angles, especially on upright rows. Using this one, the angle of the bar is exactly where your hands need to be. Also the U-shaped bit in the middle goes under your chin, so you don't hit yourself with it, like I was, using a straight one.
The price is very good too. Your talking about £40 for kit like this. Amazon was the cheapest by far. I would recommend buying this bar just for doing upright rows as it has improved my form by 50%.

wow! such poor quality. who would have thought that such a simple piece of equipment could be such a let down.
i was looking forward to this as ive had some serious wrist pain using regular dumbbells (york) recently and after a little research and reading up on reviews here i decided to give this tri/curl combi bar a go.

as it turned up on the door, a day late, it was barely covered in a thin plastic wrap already ripped and falling off. i wasnt too bothered as it is solid metal, but still i expected a little more from amazon, who normally send small items in huge over padded boxes.

i was quite lucky as i quickly and easily remover the remaining plastic wrap, that i didnt cut myself open. on each end of the bar there was a razor sharp metal splinter. i was surprised and lucky to only graze my hand on one as i was removing the plastic wrap, so i checked the other end only to find another one.

the chrome and metal castings are just so poor. chrome hasnt been applied in places. small chips are breaking off the nuts only creating more sharp edges and the nuts them self are very loose on the bar, this really is the lowest quality lifting bar i have ever set eyes on. i am truly shocked amazon supplied me this.

if you do choose to buy one of these bent tri/curl combi bars, do yourself a favor and purchase a different brand.

This bar is great for doing either bicep curls or a lying tricep extension (skullcrusher) while taking the strain off you wrists and forearms. There are of course, more exercises you can do with the bar.

The problem with doing the two exercises I mentioned above with a straight bar is that they put pressure on your wrists, causing discomfort and thus making the exerciser use less weight. Less weight means that the exercise will be less effective and the results less impressive. Doing the same exercise with the hands at an angle relieves the pressure and allows you to do the exercise in relative comfort, meaning you can add a bit more weight to your lift.

The curve of this bar is a bit more acute than a normal EZ bar, which I like but some people may not. It comes with spin lock collars and is for 1 inch weight plates. The chrome finish does mark easily, more than other bars I own, for which the bar loses a star. All in all, it does the job and does it well.

A great bar for an arms workout. With the different places for your hands to hold on to, different areas of the biceps and even triceps can be met when working out. It's weight is even and it is a strong build. The diameter of the bar matches the standard York Fitness Plates.

I wanted this product for exercises such as the upright row and overhead tricep extension. The item is perfect for both.
My York cast iron weights fit it perfectly and the metal spinlock collars match the York dumbbell kit I own.

Before buying this item I was torn between it and York E-Z Curl Bar - 5.1 kg. I am glad that I went for this as the curves are more ergonomic and therefore more comfortable to use.
The item is quite heavy on its own, weighing in at just over 5 kg with no weight on it!
It came well packaged and it's a sturdy piece of kit which should last me for years.
