The York fitness 1 inch barbell pad, is a protective pad which can fit standard 1 inch barbells. Usage of the pad is designed to soften the weight of a heavy barbell resting on your neck/trapezius muscles from heavy squats. I bought the product from fitness-superstore.co.uk for a price tag of £8.50 Appearance The product was red, with the words "York fitness" in white capital font in the centre of the velcro fastener. The red velcro fastener is made from PVC and is apparently washable. It has a velcro closure system at the end which locks quite securely.The red cover looks classy and attractive rather than just a plain foam product you can buy ... Read the complete review

Ive been using weights for around 15 years now and I still have my original York kit, which was my first. Part of this kit is a dumbell, which is the longer (around 4 feet) long bar that you use for bench press, quads, core and back exercises, most people naturally move on from the simpler , easier exercises that involve barbells and start to use the more excessive weights on the dumbell, its emperitive for increasing core power and strenth.

If you're into weights and have thought about moving on from the standard dumbbells then using a barbell is a good way of developing your core strength and increasing the power you have. However, too many people launch straight into using the barbell without any padding and give up after a few minutes because their grip isn't comfortable. York is a leading fitness equipment manufacturer, and I've rarely had an issue with any of their weights equipment. My work gym has this padding for their barbells, and the way they help protect and support is very reassuring. The padding itself is quite tight outside and in, slotting securely over the bar itself and ... Read the complete review

While doing weights my hands got a little bit sore, often from using other equipment as well. I tried weight lifting gloves but found them annoying as I had to keep taking them for boxing or adjusting them while using them. I saw this and gave it a go. Use: It really does work well to not only protect your hands but give you a comfortable handle on your dumbbells. Compared to gloves I think this may take the edge as it is not only comfort but stays on well. After it is attached I thought it would be prone to falling off but you get none of that. It sticks well and feels very secure in your hand. I have allowed a few friends the use of it and they all ... Read the complete review
