The Rocko Barbell (AKA Bamboo Bar) is an important tool in the building of strength, improving form, and preventing injury. Bamboo bars are no longer the secret weapon of elite athletes. Now every home gym athlete can enjoy the benefits of a bamboo bar. Foundational bamboo bar exercises include bench press, overhead press, and squat. Engineered to direct oscillating kinetic energy (OKE) from weighted bands to the glutes, legs, shoulders, biceps, elbows, and lower back for the purpose of developing stabilizing muscles, improving form, and promoting healthy joint function.

Stability training improves neuromuscular efficiencies, giving athletes greater motor control within a muscle and between muscle groups. Even with lighter loads all muscle fibers are completely engaged.
Unstable weight gives athletes immediate feedback when technique is correct. Incorrect form is magnified making it easier to correct.
Stabilizing muscles tend to be underdeveloped in athletes, often leading to injury. Recruiting these stabilizing muscles helps to recover from as well as prevent common injuries.
Squatting with the bamboo bar engages more of the glutes, quads and smaller stabilizing muscles. The oscillating kinetic energy of the unstable weight forces the athlete to control the bar path which contributes to better overall technique.
Greater strength (both for primary movers and stabilizers), better form, increased blood flow, improved joint health, and better coordination/motor control. Oscillating kinetic energy or 'OKE' training also greatly reduces your susceptibility to injury.
5-Stars - Very functional fitness tool. I find it works really well for my shoulder rehab. The instability of the motion really makes the core fire and strengthens ligaments. Very good craftsmanship on this bar.
