There are many things to be said about The Log, but perhaps we should begin by saying that it is made from over forty kilos of steel.
Recent times have seen a shift away from body-building styles of training, back to ‘old school’ methods which transfer directly into athletics - and life - itself.
The Log, along with the atlas stone, is one of the more ‘conventional’ implements used in strongman training. It can be used for Olympic lifts like the clean-and-press and snatch as well as their component movements (military and push press and jerk), along with bent-over rows and partial bench presses. The Iron Edge Log is constructed of one solid, fully-welded piece and finished with a textured, matte-black powder-coat finish. The Log’s 50mm sleeves will fit Olympic weights and Lock Jaw collars for a total of 200 additional kilograms, which can be added as your burgeoning muscles require.

XM Fitness designed a great strongman bar. Although only 8 inches in diameter, this beast weighs 96lbs, has two well spaced handles (with large openings so that you hit your forearms) to accommodate almost any size frame and as an added bonus comes complete with snap lockers. XM Fitness Strongman Bar has great welds, sound quality and construction fits virtually any power rack all this @ 1/2 the price of it's competitors in Canada. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Durable home gym tool.
Great home gym tool to use indoors or outdoors. While the clean and press is the standard, the log is great for floor presses, rows and squats as well. If you live in Canada, this is the most affordable option and luckily the quality is not sacrificed. The welds are all clean and the log itself is highly durable. Definitely pricey but a worthwhile investment.
This log is super solid, and fits in any squat rack. I like it for clean and press and bench variations too. The best part is the two sets of handles. They are perfectly spaced for me, and the opening in the log is large enough to not bang the forearms. No regrets.
