So I bought the 1" Barbell Pad from York. As with all York's gear (well, certainly the stuff I've bought), it's well made and sturdy. It fits snugly on my 5ft, 1" bar and I was able to put 100kg on without having any problems. In that past, I've been using pillows just above my knees but this pad does the job 101% better (and it stops my wife nagging me when I take them from her side of the bed).
The only downside is that I've found that you need to position it just right, with the opening at the top. Otherwise, they barbell has a tendency to roll a bit and slip out. But that's a minor point and as long as you keep the bar steady, it's no problem.
I've not squatted with it (I use an Olympic bar for that and don't have a problem with taking the weight unpadded) but I have also used it for Good Mornings and again found it very comfortable.
All in all, a good buy.
Firstly the pad comes in two seperate parts, the foam bit and the lether to hold it on. it would have been much easier if they were attached, however i dont know if others are like this and its not such a big problem. The main problem is that the pad is too small to wrap around a standard barbell. The foam wraps around about 3/4 of the bar which leaves the rest with no padding between you and the bar. You can twist it around a bit to get the foam bit but this is quite awkward to do with all that weight on your back.
Seeing that this pad does not even fit around the standard (not olympic) barbell it brings me to think whats the point of it. i am normally very happy with other york products and dont know why they went so wrong with this one.
This is much thicker and better than the cheap £2 one I bought to begin with. The 2 inch thick pad provides support for your back/shoulders when squatting however the red fold around literally just folds around!
It is not connected/attached to the pad at all and I find it annoying to fit each time so I just use the black cushion bit.
The pad takes away a lot of the discomfort across the shoulders/traps and alowed me to put all my effort into good squats instead of being distracted by the discomfort.
I'm realy glad i bought this item as before i avoided doing squats but now I enjoy squats and I only wish I bought it sooner.

Not a bad but the gap is a problem when lifting heavy weights. Not sure what the solution is though.Published 11 days ago by tonyh28
No complaints. Comfortable, clean, nice cover on it. Can take a beating because it's made out of foam.
Doesn't fit my gym barbells. They have very thin bars but it's still too thin.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
