In this video, Chris Duffin takes a look a the physics behind the Kadillac Bar's primary features and discusses it's advantages over a standard swiss/football bar.
Is this bar redundant [for a home gym] if I have the Duffalo bar?
Not whatsoever. The next best purchase for a pressing bar would definitely be the Kadillac Bar. Last week Chris Duffin had an Instagram post that talked about this bar and 'playground physics'. It details how the grip angles on this bar were designed to keep the shoulders in a superior position of external rotation during pressing movements.

I'm local and was wondering if I can purchase and pick up rather than shipping it across town.
Yes, you can absolutely pick up barbells and IASTM tools at The Lab. When you place your order you will see a section called, 'Order Notes'. Let us know you would like to pick up your item(s) in person and list an email and phone number. We will contact you as soon as your order is ready and schedule a time for you to come in. Our order system will still charge shipping at the time of the transaction, however we will refund it when you pick up your item(s).
Can the kadillac bar be used for bent over rows or does it want to “flip over” like the duffalo bar?
The Kadillac Bar and the Duffalo Bar are both amazing for bent-over rows. However, the Duffalo Bar does require substantially more grip strength in rowing movements. Therefore, if you find it challenging but love the ergonomic position that the bar puts your shoulders in, you will love the Kadillac Bar for all movements including bent-over rows. Not only does it have 3 different grip widths, but because of the neutral angle, it will not challenge wrist or forearm strength to the level that the Duffalo Bar will.
Good afternoon.. i have a trap bar on order, if I order a kadillac bar can I combine shipping? Thank you Kevin Grunzweig
Unfortunately, we would not be able to combine 2 bars into one shipment. Each one of our bars is packaged and shipped separately in order to protect the bar. Moreover, this results in better shipping rates for our customers, since they are based off weight and dimension. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Regarding the Cadillac Bar - did its design team consider including a cable attachment point (near the center) to allow it to be used as a multigrip pulldown bar?
We did, which is why there is a hole there for you to add an eye-bolt for that exact use!
Hi guys, do you ship to Australia. If so, how much for shipping to Australia, Melbourne Victoria 3189? Is it more financial on shipping to purchase multiply bars? Example, 2 Cadillac bars & 2 trap bars.
We absolutely ship to Australia. However, all bars ship separately. For shipping estimates, please email the full location address to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the bars you would like to have shipped. Thank you!
Trying to figure out how to do squats with it.
We wouldn't recommend it, but let us know how that goes if you take it for a test drive/squat. Back squats may not be that comfortable, but a front/goblet squat might work. Tag us in your social media, if you post it!
Can you use this bar for military presses
Yes, you can!
Is the Kadillac bar solely for bench press or can you utilize it for for other movements such as skull crushers for triceps or even curls for biceps?
You may use the Kadillac Bar for a number of movements! One of our coaches was just using it at The Lab for skull crushers today and it was outstanding! People have been using it for curls and I've even seen them get creative with overhead press, as well as lat pull downs.
May be a dumb one but trying to budget since hopefully getting the trap bar when it’s available again at the introductory price. Does the”introductory” price mean it will be more after this period. If so, for how long does the introductory price last
Unfortunately, due to the rising cost of steel and manufacturing, the price of the Trap Bar will be increasing. Once the orders from the first release have been fulfilled, we will evaluate costs associated with creating the bar before the second release.
Are the handles knurled?
The handles on the Kadillac bar are a texturized powdercoat that feels like grip tape.
Is there attachment points for the Duffalo band pegs?
I apologize, there are not attachment points for the previous design of the Duffalo Bar attachments. We are redesigning our attachments to be able to be used with any bar.
What is the max and min rack width that the bar is able to be racked in?
The rack J-cups should be a minimum of 41.5" apart (from the inner side) to a maximum of 54" apart (measured from the outer side).
Do you have a monthly payment plan for this like what you had with your bars ?
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer financing at this time. We will definitely let our customers know if the option will be available again the future.
How do you rack this? Do you have to load the weights from the floor then lift it up on your stomach and press or can this fit on a normal bench rack?
The Kadillac Bar fits in a standard bench rack.
