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.
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.

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.
