So I'm a germaphobe and am totally grossed out by the thought of a barbell pad soaked in a strange guys sweat. Ugh. I'd always end up wrapping the towels around the bar, but they shift alot and don't add much padding anyways. I finally decided to get my own pad and personalized set up. This pad made all the difference. The cutout for my neck is comfortable, and the pad is not soaked with sweat or bulky towels. Very happy with this item!
So let's talk about having to search for 1 of these in the gym and getting one that's broken or sweaty. This pad is amazing comfortable and easy to use. I love that it come with staps so you you don't have to worry about the velcro not working. The notch in the pad is perfect for your neck. Ita super thick and long enough for when you doing hip thrust. With so much germs already in the gym I love that I have one less thing to worry about getting me sick.
This product is multi functioning and can be used not only to squat but also to do lunges, hip thrusts, etc. Unlike the barbell pads most gyms carry (LA Fitness) this pad is much more spongey so it does not bear too much strain on the shoulders. I can lift heavy for my weight, however I need a pad because I’ve struggled with upper back/shoulder pain for years. I find myself being able to lift heavier with PeachBands brand than the one offered at the gym. I also like to have my own equipment because it’s clean and I know other peoples sweat isn’t on it! The only thing you must make sure you do is to secure the band with the straps when squatting or lifting heavy. It is larger than the bar and will slide off without it!!! Be careful.
The barbell pad has helped me so much!! Doing squats and hip thrusters was always frustrating when using a barbell because I could never add as much weight as I wanted without having the barbell dog into my skin and leave me with all sorts of crazy bruising. The peach bands barbell cover has been a life saver I can now comfortably do squats and hip thrusters with as much weight as I want and I never have to worry about being in pain
I loved the texture, the color and the comfortable experience while lifting heavy! Certainly what I was looking for.. It took me two days to receive it. 🙌🏼 It comes with a cute bag that Is very helpful to organize and keep the two security straps that it comes with it and the pad togather! Ladies.. recommended 100% .. buy the pink one 😉😏 Guys ... buy a pink one for your princess 👸🏻 and get the black one for you! 😄 I even posted some pics on my IG and people started asking about the comfort when lifting “heavy”.. I totally recommend it. Nice job. Keep it up @peachbands 😎
Definitely needed this for my bones lol. Even hip thrusts with the barbell has been a huge help in letting me lift heavier with less pain. Only thing I don’t like is the straps to hold it on if you wish, pinched your skin and hurts... so I don’t use them and it’s just fine.
Love my pink one! I never knew how much I needed a barbell pad before purchasing the Peach bands one! I use them for squats and hip thrusts, and it makes a huge difference! I use to use a towel rolled up and although it has some cushion it wasn’t enough and the weights always hurt my hip bones lol but now I can do heavier weight and no pain on my shoulders for squats and no pain on my hips for hip thrusts!
