Power Train Your Road to Success

Odds are you learned how to ride a bike with training wheels before learning how to ride a Harley.

Want to be as confident in the gym as a biker riding a hog into Sturgis?

Then hop on this training barbell.

You ditched the training wheels for your bike long ago (and maybe the salt and lime for your tequila), but you still have one thing left to learn- proper lifting technique.

"A Training Bar that Doesn't Suck"

That's a direct quote from Peter, our founder, and CEO, talking about the inspiration behind our training barbell.

Lesser training barbells don't perform well due to knurling that's too deep, knurling that doesn't reach the collars and poor spin.

Coupling this realization with years of experience manufacturing our Wonderbar and Bomba, we scaled down our manufacturing techniques to produce a high performing, solid quality training barbell that will get you from novice to seasoned pro in no time.

Here's why:

  • Training barbell that sports moderate knurl, making it grippy without tearing your hands
  • 28mm diameter stays true to IWF standard
  • Intelligently designed and engineered bushings provide smooth, pleasant spin
  • Perfectly suited for novice lifters, lifters with less strength, kids, teens, and seniors

We're Taking You to School

Our 15 lb, aluminum barbell is the lightest possible bar that simulates some of the properties of a full-size bar that enable a lifter to pattern the movements for lifts, particularly Olympic lifts (i.e. the snatch and clean & jerk), with an extremely light load.

Our training barbell's aluminum composition makes it less dense than steel, creating a nice, light bar. Aluminum has different strength properties than steel, so our training barbell has a max capacity of 150 lb and is stiff, with no whip.

This bar fills the need of lifters with some level of strength but no experience with Olympic lifts (snatch and clean & jerk). Whether you're an amateur or still building your strength, this light barbell will show you the correct movements. Once you've learned the proper technique of each lift, you then can move onto a full-size barbell.

Do keep in mind that aluminum bends and lacks the durability of steel, so this barbell isn't intended for daily, general use and should NOT be dropped.

We don't guarantee you Ivy League prestige with this barbell, but you'll graduate from noob to gritty veteran in less than a semester. So if you want to fast track your lifting degree, don't pass on registering for this course now. You'll be the toast of your gym as the latest, diploma-holding, valedictorian of Olympic barbell training.

Excellent Technique Bar!

I bought this lightweight bar for my children. They are in junior high and have recently become interested in physical training. This bar allows my kids to use a classic form factor barbell with lightweight plates as I coach their power lifts. It is long enough to be racked (you should be fine to use this in your rack, but make sure you measure your equipment anyway). Shipping was instantaneous--I swear! The bar was packaged in a appropriately robust tube AND it was simple to unpack. ...mighty fine for included shipping. I received the barbell in pristine condition. The bar's knurling is very nice, wonderful really! It's so nice that the kids will not have to use chalk (less mess in my house). I like matte finish of this barbell. If I could change anything, I would add a center knurl (for squats). That's not even a criticism, I've squatted with and without a center knurl. There are many other things on which to focus when squatting besides center knurl--or lack thereof. This type of bar is a necessary component for small or frail novices. It will also appeal to anyone who wants a lightweight bar. I looked around quite a bit and concluded this was a top tier choice based on form factor, capacity, quality, and shipping. Get it!

Wanted to purchase a training bar for the last year and the recent discount helped me pull the trigger!!!! Love it for perfecting my skills without concern of injury! Quality is great and now I have no excuse for not doing the work!!!!

Almost perfect

The little metal pieces on the ends jingle when I go through various movements, but otherwise it’s a great bar for form focus on warm ups.
