We're excited to get this bad boy in our arsenal for you. If Snake Plissken needed an amazing multi-grip 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.
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.
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.
The new version of our multigrip bar has longer sleeves that bolt on to the body for a larger loadable length - plus you can remove the sleeves for better storage. And this longer length makes the bar easy to rack on most racks out there!
Plus the 770 pound weight capacity means you can hit those gains - and more - with this specialty bar in your gym!
And the sleek matte black powder coated steel will withstand years and years of workouts, while the chrome plated sleeves will stay shiny, no matter how many hundreds of pounds of plates you slide on and off over and over and over.
Caution: This bar may provoke bouts of newfound temerity. And not a little jealousy from your friends and neighbors who get an eyeful of it!
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 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.
This newly designed bar is branded "Fringe Sport" on the side in the powder coating. And you can rack this bar on any rack so it stays sturdy, no matter what lifts, moves or grooves you want to do with this amazing, multi-grip, multipurpose bar.
I knew I wanted a cambered Swiss bar. I compared a bunch and this was the most similar to the big, expensive K. bar but was much less expensive. I had never ordered anything from Fringe before and couldn't find any reviews for this bar. I took the risk and ordered it and am SO GLAD that I did. I love this bar. I now use it for most of my benching and overhead bar work. I wish the knurl were more aggressive because the coating doesn't feel great on my hands, but I use chalk and it works fine. It's my favorite specialty bar.
I honestly think it's superior to the Arch Nemesis Bar, and the price difference is negligible. While the Arch Nemesis would cost me around $220 with tax, Fringe doesn't charge tax (at least to me), so their bar only costs $50 more. While some items at Fringe Sport are overpriced, I don't believe this is one of them. For the extra $50, you get a few notable upgrades, including removable sleeves (which I personally don't use), chrome sleeves, and a heavier bar that weighs 40 lbs, making it much closer in weight to a regular 45 lb bar. In my opinion, these features make it worth the extra money in the long run. However, if you're on a tight budget, this may not be the best option for you. Overall, I highly recommend this bar!
3 weeks after purchasing item it has not been shipped even though the company says it has. All that has really happened is they created a label. No product has been delivered to the shipper.
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 it...it'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!
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 evenly...one 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!
