The Story Behind the Vaughn Barbell

The Vaughn Bar was born out of Chad and Jodi Vaughn's frustration with the existing barbell options on the market. While the weightlifting scene in the US is exploding, barbell options and development has not kept pace. Prior to the Vaughn Bar, a purpose-built weightlifting bar with the best steel was $800+. The Vaughn bar clocks in at half that price, and adds a great knurl, no center knurl, a lifetime warranty, and more. Learn more about Chad Vaughn.
