BACKBULL Lat Bar Review

BACKBULL Lat Bar Review - Attachment for Back Workouts - Close Grip Inverted Row Handle

With back workouts you quickly learn a truism, all of the wide grip chins and pull-downs in the world can't give you a fully developed, ripped back.

For that, you must do your heavy rows, especially close grip. However, the problem with those exercises (heavy low pulley rows, T-bar rows and medium grip bent over barbell rows) is that they put an enormous load on the lower back.

The BACKBULL might be available again in late 2020.

We will update this page if/when that happens. Or, buy the KENSUI Swissies45 Pull up grips that can be attached to any barbell or pullup bar and do the same thing as the backbull.

Now, with BACKBULL lat workouts in any smith machine or power rack you experience incredible gains for heavy rowing with no lower back loading.

Nothing seems to match the "OLD SCHOOL" feel of body weight exercises, no matter if it's dips, wide grip chins, or BACK BULL rows. Simply put, "they are all brutal, effective exercises". And even if you have never had low back injuries, after a few sets, BACKBULL will become one of your "go to" rowing movements on back day.

BACK BULL is "overbuilt" for strength, and proudly made in the USA, welded robotically in an ISO 9001 Certified Factory. "It took dozens of prototypes, with different spacing, and angles, BUT WE GOT IT RIGHT!"
