Get a Grip on Your Workouts

We're excited to get this bad boy in our arsenal for you. If Snake Plissken needed a football bar in Escape from New York this would be it. With its thick gauge steel, fat welds and black matte powder coat, our multi-grip bar feels like a cross between an intimidating weapon Snake shoves in your face and the mad inspiration a chop shop welder took from a cowcatcher. Get ready to inject some garage grit into your workouts.

We've Got Some Pull (and Press)

When you're in that oil puddle on the cracked concrete garage floor mood, take a handoff from us with our football bar. With its 3 grip positions, you're provided a slew of new workout variants for pushing and pulling lifts.

  • The "pronated" position, when your palms are facing forward, is what causes the shoulder pain for some lifters doing a pressing movement. With the multi-grip barbell, the lifter can use a neutral hand position to allow some relief to those injured areas. There are two neutral hand positions included on this barbell.
  • Heavier loads and muscles targeted at new and different angles means unpredictability and fresh gains. We love doing close grip bench presses, skull crushers, hammer grip curls, front raises and incline front raises with our multi-grip bar here at Fringe headquarters.
  • Our multi-grip barbell has 60 degrees angled handles, along with two neutral handle options. This allows you to add variation to your workout and comfort to your joints.
  • One of the reasons this barbell is referred to by some as a "football" barbell is it is used in football training so the players (after injury and abuse on the field) can comfortably do the bench press movement without pain.
  • This barbell measures about 53 inches within the sleeves and can be racked on most squat racks on the market.

If you're looking to give your workouts an octane boost, you've got your solution right here. If this bar needed jerk blocks they would be a pair of old, beat up, 55-gallon drums. If this bar needed a ride, it would be from a Jeep Wrangler. If this bar needed a new garage, it would be yours.

Caution: This bar may provoke bouts of newfound temerity.

Multi-Grip, Multi-Purpose

The different grips will strengthen your muscles at different angles, which in turn makes you more functional.

If you consider the size and shape of multi-grip bars, they can be more unstable than regular straight barbells, requiring your muscles to work more towards keeping your body stabilized and staying tight.

The multi-grip bar or "football bar" can be used for a few different movements. The main press movements, as we mentioned earlier, bench press, incline press, floor press, and overhead press, as well as bent over rows and even curls and skullcrushers.

The last two movements mentioned can be done with a pair of dumbbells, but if you want to add some serious weight to those movements a multi-grip barbell can offer that to you. The two neutral grips can mimic the hand placement you would have on dumbbells. If you're having wrist pain, the angled grip may work better for you.

Better Get One!

I purchased this bar hoping it would work for me, due to my rack not being the standard size in width. Unfortunately it did not fit, but I just loved this bar and did couple of work outs. It was too difficult to use without being able to rack's a hefty bar! Great for curling and reverse bench press...if it fits your cage. Regret not being able to keep it. And for your info, it is knurled!

Try it...YOU will LIKE it!

I purchased this bar basically to do bench presses and rows due to shoulder pain. It is built very well and with knurling, and fits the hand/grip just right. With the multiple grips you can get an awesome workout just benching...turn it around and do reverse press for the triceps, close grip, center bars. The bar is heavy at 46lbs, so be sure you have somewhere to store it. I wanted to just keep it on my rack, but unfortunate for me my rack is not the standard with...the bar would not sit on the J hooks side on, the other side off. I tried to work with it however, I had to return it because it was too difficult to bench when the bar doesn't fit on the rack. I ended up getting a much lighter one, and not built as sturdy, which would fit my rack. I only wish I knew of FringeSports when I first decided to build my Garage Gym! This company is great to work with, and with free shipping you can't go wrong, and with the sales they have like the Garage Gym Deals, you really can't go wrong. I'm temped to just get one of these deals and sell the rack I have now. Great products, Great Company...a win win for the customer and the company!
