    What's wrong with using barbell pads during squats?

    ^? I don't get what's wrong with using one.

    Using a bar pad will slightly change your center of gravity, causing you to lean forward a bit more. Not an ideal situation.

    Using a pad can possibly allow the loaded bar to slide down your back, causing you to lose control of it. Again, not an ideal situation.

    Using a bar pad may limit your ability to try/use different bar positions. Once more, not an ideal situation.

    Best bet is to just get used to the bar across your back/shoulders, and not have to deal with any of the above. It's "uncomfortable" at first, but as the nerve endings de-sensitize over time, you'll eventually have no problem/pain where the bar rides.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    Nothing wrong that I previously knew of although the technical breakdown/center of gravity explanation given by ironwill2008 is interesting to note.

    If it works for you and your legs grow from your squatting then go for it. There will always be a guy in the gym watching and rating you, but screw that guy and do what works for you.

    I've never used one because I do low bar squats and once you get used to the positioning (against the rear delts), the bar doesn't hurt at all.

    ^^^Very nice.

    Proper form will make the need for a pad unnecessary. Really it should be called a dumbass-pad.

    I don't care who uses a pad when squatting, there's some in the gym who do.
    I know I never used one and quickly found a nice place on my traps to put the bar on no prob, nice and comfy.
    Up to 120 kgs I've loaded so far I felt no discomfort, at least not there.
    What you heard I haven't heard.
    I suspect they put the bar on the wrong place.
    Don't know what a pad would have done for them.
    Find a good place to rest the bar on FIRST, worry about using a pad second.
    I see people jumping straight into belts and wraps and whatever, they're good when needed.
    I doubt though you'll see your spinal cord jumping out or anything like that without proper warning, like your body telling you "get that fecking thing off my neck like right now".
    If it feels like the bar is giving you trouble meaning you haven't found that sweet spot then probably fix that first.
    Get well soon Robert.

    OMG, using a bar pad is just about the opposite of doing upper-body exercises without stability ball. Nobody is going to blame you for using one.

    You use it if the bar is pinching too hard on your back-side, but even when it is on, your back-side will still adapt to it while you get better at squats.

    Just take it off if you ever feel like it.

    When I say squats, I am referring to squats. Not 90lb festivals of endurance. Heavy squats.

    1) It ****s with your stability. The bar has to rest on the narrow strip of pad. The bar will be more balanced if it goes flat across your back, which is not possible with a pad.

    2) It ****s with your squat. It can cause forward lean, bar slippage, and abnormal neck cranes as you try to keep the bar in one place.

    3) It ****s with your back. You won't be able to maintain as much upper back tightness when you squat or you'll lose the bar. And thus, your tightness suffers throughout the lift and your lift suffers.

    4) It ****s with your manhood. It's called the pussy pad for a reason. Man-up and get used to an iron bar across your back, or get used to dying under 200lbs. Your choice.

    I use the pad when I squat, especially on heavy days. I don't know if I just have sensitive skin or something, but after squats without the pad I almost always have straight line bruises on my shoulders/back from the bar. The pad pretty much eliminates that for me, so I use it. If I can't find one, it's not a huge deal. It doesn't really hurt much while I'm doing the exercise, just trying to avoid the bruising.

    i think the pad originally came into popularity so that people could workout in tank tops and wifebeaters more comfortably(srs)

    i have tried using one when i was sunburnt but the way it sits with that pad around it is just uncomfortable and throws off the lift. seems like it turns what was a high bar squat into a REALLLY high bar squat. too much low back with the pad in there for me.

    you usually get those hardcore people that say its for pussies or whatever but for me i fell much stronger when the bar is closer to me. i would highly recommend not using but it is your decision. i havent seen very many competent squatters using one. when i do see someone it is usually a quarter squatter with too much weight on his back anyway.


    good luck in your decision OP but i agree with Ironwill, the mechanics of the lift are vastly different with and without the bar.

    It scares the **** out of me to put that pad on the bar, sometimes when I'm switching off with someone who uses it I give it a shot but quickly rerack the bar. I feel like the bar isn't at all stable, and as everyone is saying, it feels ready to roll off my back. I wear a hoody when I squat anyways and if I end up with a bar mark / bruise across my back I consider it a successful leg workout. If there's no mark, I didn't go heavy enough :P

    Hmm... Not true... even girls can squat without the pad...

    I never use the pad because it makes it feel like the bar is moving around (without it, the bar stays right on my traps).

    Up to you though... if it feels better, use it! But don't say it's a girl thing to do

    using the pad is bad because : A) you look like a f@ggot
    B) you have a way higher chance of the bar slipping

    are you fuking kidding me. its 181 fuking lbs and you think its gonna grow a dick on the back of your neck? if you need a pad for that much weight you should probably stick with using the little pink dumbells.

    edit: ive seen a 40 year old woman squatting more weight than you without even a belt.



    op, youre gonna look like a pussy and its gonna feel awkward as fuk when you go heavy. i havent used a pad in years. it feels way too unstable. and besides that if you are doing a low bar squat right it should rest perfectly between your traps and shoulders without any pain.

    If the bar hurts your spine then you are doing it wrong in the first place. You don't correct it by adding a pad, you correct it by moving the bar on to your muscles and off your spine, and squatting with proper form.

    I do not like the pad because it feels unstable to me.

    I use, and love, the mantaray attachment.

    I used a pads (though not the pads exactly, but a towel coiled around the bar) a while ago, because at first when i had just started a bar rubbed my skin on scapula bones pretty hard. Then once a time i tried to squat without towel and found that i actually doing it wrong at the beginning, not keeping my upper back tight and shoulderblades squezzed. Once i master it, the bar perfectly lays on a rear deltoits, not even touching the spinal cord.
    But when it comes to front squats, i keep a towel over my neck. I am aware that the bar should lay on front delts - and even then i've got a horrible bruises at my collarbones. Maybe i've got to get that OHP to a bodyweight at least to have some meat on my shoulders

    Pad FTW. For those who wanna use it. Tool of the trade. You get used to it, it's not rocket science. Sure, there are factors that can make a slight difference compared to not using it, but that should be negligible. Because, you get used to it, it's not rocket science.

    I actually can see what zebra saying, i used one for a while when squatting and got used to it nicely but decided to try out no pad and from about 1 1/2 years now i love the feeling of just bar. (no homo) Feels good when you find the right place.
