Using the Barbell Jack

We all have our special technique for changing weight plates when the barbell is on the floor, from wrangling with a bar in one hand and pulling the weight plate with the other or the repetitive twists and pulls. We think it is odd and time consuming, it also puts us at risk of injury, not so with this deadlift barbell jack. It has a simple yet smart hook-and-pull system that allows for effortless loading, offloading, and changing of weight plates. You can perform deadlifts, hip thrusts and more without interruption or risk of muscle strain. Safe, Lightweight and Compact yet built to last, it’s ideal for home workouts and gym sessions alike. Don’t train without it.
