The Saxon bar is a 3 inch thick rectangle bar that has been designed for grip strength training. The grip is often one of those underrated areas to train and whilst it is inherently involved in all lifts, often there is lack of specific training. The Saxon bar is one of those implements that is great for training the grip. In addition to this I would recommend carrying other apparatus, using other tools such as the Angles 90, FatGripz, use of ropes etc and combining these with a range of exercises that incorporate push, pull, arc movements etc.
