- serious grip strength
- eases pain in hands, wrists and elbows while benching
- non-revolving aspect and thickness of the bar forces concentration, more tension and more immediate importance of rate of force development (RFD)
- can be defined an odd object as the distance from the athlete's center of gravity (COG) to the center of mass (COM) of the implement is increased
- can be substituted for all barbell movements
