You ever go to the gym and try squat your own bodyweight? Me too…and that shit never ends well.
Even worse when that barbell tears your shoulder blades apart, right? Those padded things with the velcro that some gyms leave lying around are no use once they reach a few weeks old and lose their shape.
I found this piece of kit online and thought I’d give it a try. I know what you’re thinking. ‘Yo Gangsta, ain’t you got enough natural padding on your body as it is?’
Fuck you! I’m almost as sensitive about my ‘padding’ as my shoulder blades are about those damned barbells.
The Aurus Creations Squad Pad is made of foam and slips right over the bar, with no need for velcro to hold it in place.
I’ve had mine for a few months and there’s no sign yet of it losing its shape. And that’s even despite me folding it into my gym bag a couple of times a week.
Just $16 to keep my shoulders all pretty and my dignity intact? Worth every penny. Check it out on Amazon. You can thank me later.
