100% satisfied. To compare this product to the pads I have used at my local gym: The ones I have used at the gym are the lighter foam covered in leather sleeve, held shut by velcro. My gym has two sizes, but I have to use the thicker one for heavy hip thrusts. The gym pads also spin and often have to be re-positioned between sets.
I was VERY pleased with the Perfect Peach Pad! It is much thinner than the one I had to use at the gym but actually performs much better. Its a comfy dense foam and feels like its good quality. It also grips to the bar keeping it in place. I also like that the logo is light pink on the black pad.
Its low profile, high quality. I really enjoyed using it!
I love love love this pad! Soooo perfect for my hip thrusts. I lift pretty heavy-- 3-45's on each side, plus bar and this still pads me perfectly. I also use it for squats, good mornings, etc and it's fantastic. I hate it when I forget to bring it along, or take it out of my gym locker and have to use the pads at the gym. I really miss the cutout that's perfect for your neck. I won't use anything else for my hip thrusts. If I forget it on hip thrust day, I just go lighter and pray to the gym gods for protection.
I was looking for a thick barbell pad and came across this one on Amazon. The barbell pad i was using wasn't thick enough and whenever i would do hip thrusters at the gym the weight of the bar and weight on my hip was really uncomfortable or whenever i would do squats the weight behind my neck with the bar would hurt my shoulders. I needed a barbell pad that had a lot of cushioning so it wouldn't hurt me while exercising and this one is perfect! It has the perfect amount of cushioning so you can work out with heavy weights. I love this barbell pad and would highly recommend this if you like to work out with weights. My only issue was that this barbell pad does not come with straps so it tends to move a little on the barbell but other than that it's great!
I bought this to make life easier on my wife doing squats, totally worth it! She’s very new to lifting, and from what she tells me, this has been a lifesaver. No neck or shoulder pain to speak of with this! **UPDATE** I pulled a goof and actually threw away one of the securing straps for this pad, so I ended up contacting them to see if I could get another strap. They sent me a whole replacement pad setup free of charge two days later! Talk about awesome customer service! Changing my review to 5 stars, and if my wife needs anything else for her fitness journey, I’ll be looking to Perfect Peach first!
Great cushion for doing squats and hip thrusts. Cute pink color, too. I'm not afraid to admit that I bought this neck pad and not one of the other brands because of the logo. It's cute and I want a perfect peach, too! I didn't read anywhere in the description that it comes with velcro straps to hold the pad in place, so it was a nice surprise when I opened the package and found them inside. They are black and hold very well.
Love it! This pad is supreme quality and very well made. The pad is super thick, and the material feels so soft on the outside! The color is adorable. It also comes with a strap for easier carrying. I'm really blown away by the quality of Perfect Peach products. I hate buying items more than once and always try to get the most for my money. If you have this on your wishlist do it! This pad is way nicer than the off-brand one at Academy Sports, and was cheaper too! (And cuter!)
I have a bad shoulder and this has been so helpful when I use them for squats on the smith machine. I've also been using it to protect my lady parts and hips when I do weighted glute bridges. I bought mine in pink. It stands out at the gym and I figure it would make it less likely to be stolen. I've "misplaced" an item once and just weird that the person who took it wouldn't give it back. I personally like using pink now when i'm at the gym :)
So sturdy/thick! I feel no pain when I do hip thrusts or squats! I’m happily surprised :) I’ve used it four times already and I’m very happy about this purchase. The quality is very good. Thank you so much! I wish I could do more than five stars lol
Amazing!!!! Me and my family love to workout and I love doing bar work. Only problem is Gold’s Gym always has some nasty worn out pad. I bought this mainly for my butt routine! When I do weighted pelvic thrusts the bar will literally destroy my hip and pelvic bone if I don’t have padding. This pad is so thick and amazing! I don’t feel a thing! The only thing I wish it had was some way to secure it and keep it closed. I use an ankle strap I have which works really well! I’m a pretty petite girl 5’0” 100lbs. My daughters use this as well and never any complaints that the bar or weight hurts!
