JD Max Fitness, LLC is offering a new patented, “why didn’t someone else think of this before” product named “Hookers” that aids in the ability of an individual to perform an Olympic squat with improved ergonomics and functionality.
“Hookers” are the first ever engineered barbell handles that, when applied to an Olympic barbell, allow an individual to hold and stabilize the barbell approximately six inches anteriorly (to the front), dramatically changing and improving the ergonomics of the motion.
This hand grip variation eliminates shoulder impingement, rotator cuff strain and lower back hyperextension while still maintaining trapezius dorsi contraction to protect the cervical spine while performing an Olympic squat.
“Hookers” have a never before seen alternating hook system technology that can retrofit any Olympic barbell, easily hooking to the barbell and providing a secure and safe alternative to traditional, less ergonomically sound, Olympic squatting techniques.
This product is made of solid steel construction, tested to hold up to 800 lbs, now with a friction and wear resistance coating on the hooks to eliminate unwanted motion during use. Handles are knurled for a secure grip while in use.
“Hookers” is the first and only product that effectively and easily improves the Olympic squat exercise. Anyone that uses the Olympic squat, the most advantageous exercise to strengthen and shape the legs, will dramatically benefit from using the JD Max Fitness Hookers.

I've had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders limiting my range of motion and flexibility, I've been using lifting straps wrapped around the bar to lenghten my grip and still do a low bar squat. I've found the perfect solution! Your barbell handle is a smart and simple idea to still squat and maintain good form. I thought my days of doing the best exercise out there were limited, not now!! I will be ordering a pair soon! Good idea!!
These will definitely add pounds to your squat!

These bar handles are the best tool I have ever used for squats. In the last two years of using these I have added over 200 lbs to my squat. The handles put my body into proper arch alignment and take stress completely off my shoulders. I also use them for shrugs and stiff-leg deadlifts to keep the bar lower on my thighs (more comfortable!). I would never squat again without these.
