OVERSIZED BARBELL PAD HIP .THRUST.
Double-layered barbell padding created for use during the Hip Thrust exercise.
The Barbell Pad H.T. features a high thickness of the padding.
It is composed of a high-density expanded material covered in sturdy PVC to achieve a hard cushion that helps absorb the barbell’s elevated pressure.
The product is excellently finished, in particular the seams and the dimensions of the Velcro closure. The PVC outer shell completely covers the pad, including the internal part, which is in contact with the barbell: this avoids shifting the pad during the use. It has a double closure: an external one in Velcro (5cm long) and an internal zipper that prevents the barbell from entering the pad’s opening gap during the use.
The Barbell Pad H.T. can also be used as a ‘board press,’ which means as a padding between the chest and the barbell for some exercises performed on the bench. In particular, when a reduction of the ROM (Range Of Motion) is needed (squats, calf raises, shrugs, and lunges). Even if the Barbell Pad was not conceived for other movements than the Hip Thrust, it allows us to minimize the use of a wooden board.
