    The SSB really is a great back strengthener. Louie Simmons always called the SSB "The Deadlift Bar" because of the positive effects it can have on your Deadlift.
    My SSB mainly gathers dust these days, I rarely use it. Right now I'm training to get back in the 500 pound Deadlift Club, but at 62 years of age this time.
    I've been doing heavy Conventionals one week and then lighter Snatch Grips the next, and just rotating them. It is working very well for me so far.
    Keep up the good training, I believe you can reach your goals. You have the mental toughness, and I believed that strength begins in the mind.
    Stay Strong!!

    What kind of prowler do you use? Im planning on doing some outside workouts this winter to get extra sunlight and prowlers would be something Id consider.
