American Barbell Free Weight Equipment Made in the USA

American Barbell US Made 20KG Hard Chrome Performance Training Bar - U.S. made with one-piece welded ends. American Barbell Olympic bars were originally designed and distributed by GP Industries, and continue to be produced today under the American Barbell brand name with the same industry-respected engineering and commercial quality. Heat treated quench and tempered turned ground and polished high strength steel. The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel with perfect knurl for a sure grip but not rough enough to tear skin. The strength of the shaft is approximately 190,000 PSI tensile strength which is optimum for Olympic lifts. Contrary to other claims a bar with higher tensile strengths is too stiff and will not have the flex (whip) that lifters desire. The bar sleeves are precision welded to eliminate failure. The weld is semi concealed to not interfere with plates resting flush against the sleeve collar. Each sleeve is coated with polished hard chrome for protection against dropping. Sleeves rotate around glass filled Nylon bushings for smooth rotation. Locking shoulder bolt holds ends securely.

Perfect Bar for a home Olympic Lifter
So this bar is really fantastic, I got this bar when my job took me away from my favorite OLY lifting gym and I decided to start online programming. It has a great knurling, very grippy and is equally suited for max attempts and higher rep work outs. The whip is excellent, and the bar is obviously made tough as nails. I use this primarily outside in a humid environment and about 6 months later it still looks basically new. The spin of the sleeve is better than most barbells you'll find at any crossfit box let a lone a golds or commercial level fitness center. Honestly a great purchase and a great deal. There are more expensive barbells, but this is a great one for the price. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to start their own home gym or even an affiliate who is trying to build a barbell club, great job American Barbell.

Excellent bar! Love the feel and the spin - much better than any of the bars at my gym. I'm going to want to train at home as often as possible now!

Awesome bar. Spin is very smooth and consistent. Knurling is perfect in my opinion. Not harsh or smooth. Has a tacky feel to it. Whip is really good. It is very comparable to bearing bars I have at the gym.
