One of the most versatile specialty barbells you can get, the Arch Nemesis is not only a shoulder saver and a bench builder, but it also doubles as a cable attachment. This welded bar has three different angled grips and a hook on the top for easy attachment onto whatever cable machine you have — or even better — pair it with the Bells of Steel Belt Squat Machine.
It protects your shoulders
The 3 different neutral handle grips on the bar are a Surefire way to alleviate shoulder pain when pressing. The Arch Nemesis Bar also can allow a lifter with shoulder problems to get back to pressing with little shoulder discomfort.
It will increase your bench
The bar has been used very successfully to develop lockout strength by shifting the stress to your triceps which will increase your lockout strength with big weights. The arch shape allows you to go beyond your typical ROM and get even deeper for massive gains.
The sleeves on the Arch Nemesis Swiss Bar are made of steel tubing instead of being regular barbell sleeves. This means that the sleeves are a few millimeters smaller than those on a regular barbell — regular 2” collars will not fit tightly without modifications.
