Weightlifting Protector
Weightlifting Protector

This equipment is designed to prevent athletes from being injured by falling barbell in weightlifting competitions and training. The device has a pair of supporting hooks which are always below the two ends of the cross bar of the barbell, and can automatically follow the movement of the barbell to maintain the relative position, so that the barbell can be held in time when the athlete fails in trials, avoiding the risk of crushing and sprain. The equipment is placed in the rear of the athlete, and it will not contact the barbell in the case of the competition goes normally, so as to avoid physical and visual interference to the athlete.
