An SZ bar is much better than a straight barbell bar for triceps press in lying position, also known as nosebreakers. Thanks to these ergonomic advantages, your training gets more joint-gentle and more effective.
A curl bar is a great asset for your training for doing upright rowing or rowing in standing position with the barbell, because it can be lifted much higher than a barbell due to the curving of the barbell.
