Whats in a name?
Milo of Croton was a 6th century Greek athlete and wrestler. His name is still proverbial for extraordinary strength. According to legend, Milo trained by carrying a calf daily from its birth until it became a full-sized ox. He is also said to have carried an ox on his shoulders through the stadium at Olympia.
The Industrial Athletic “Milo" Open Bar offers the ruggedness and durability of our other specialty bars with the features of an open side that enables the user to accomplish exercises that may not be facilitated by a traditional Trap or Hex Bar. The value of this style or lifting allows loading of the hips, core, and legs with minimal stress on the lower lumbar region. Many people who find lifts uncomfortable, painful, or have physical injuries and limitations that prohibit picking up a weight from the floor in the conventional deadlift manner can benefit from the use of a hex bar.
The open aspect enables the user to perform various exercises that would be all but impossible using a standard hex bar and or standard Olympic/Powerlifting Barbell.
