We like Dr. Ken's Log Bar a lot around here... the parallel handles make many good exercises even better and it has been directly responsible for a lot of great workouts. Plus it just has that "X-Factor" that makes you want to use it... So, having used it, trained with it for a long time AND gotten great results, we can confidently say it's the best Log Bar in the business...

But please don't just take our word for it, the proof is posted right below in the list of the Log Bar's most important features and benefits. Take a long, hard look so you can decide for yourself if you want the Log Bar to be a part of your training:
