The American Barbell Training Bar is a solid, versatile barbell for just about any application. We've tested it against the day-to-day demands of heavy training and it's proven to last.
The bar shaft is made from precision ground alloy steel and the strength of the shaft is tested with every shipment of raw material to ensure we have a consistent 190,000 PSI tensile strength. This attention to detail allows for an excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars. The shaft is finished in Cerakote and the sleeves in hard chrome for added durability. These bars have a crisp knurl pattern and offer a super solid grip. Our Training Bars also feature high-strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.
After many years of producing some of the finest Olympic barbells in the world, American Barbell is proud to introduce our latest innovation: Cerakote finished bars. Nothing ever produced rivals the corrosion and abrasion resistance of this finish. Cerakote is used by major firearm manufacturers around the world in some of the most abusive and corrosive environments. Corrosion salt spray testing has shown that this coating lasts as much as 70x longer than chrome and even stainless steel.
American Barbell's design team has been producing innovations in bar technology for more than 18 years, and this is one of our most exciting accomplishments. Every type of bar finish has its story, and we’ve determined that our Cerakote Training Bars are unrivaled.
*Please note, the 15KG Pink, Purple, Yellow and Blue Cerakote Training Bars feature dual knurl marks and a black end-cap. The "OB20-ZG-D" also features dual knurl marks.

Excellent ... love the bar ... wish the color option was available for standard 45lbs bar...
Have been using it for about a month now and am very impressed! No more loud clunky sounding commercial gym barbells! It looks great, Sounds great and has great whip for OLY lifts. Can drop from overhead to platform and barely makes much noise. Just a nice easy thud hitting the matt. Not like it’s going to rattle apart and still solid like day one. Interested to see how it holds up over a year. Good spin and good knurling. Not too aggressive but still great grip.
Finish: Cerakote finish is amazing. Takes to chalk well and looks amazing. Easy to clean. Knurling: Top notch knurling just right in terms of not being too aggressive. Whip: The whip is smooth and complements oly lifts. Style: Barbell looks amazing and seems like it would cosh more than $295.00 Quality: The barbell is finely detailed and came without any imperfections. Great packaging.
The Cerakote finish however makes it difficult to determine spacing (non Knurl) marks on the bar, especially in lower light situations Performance and quality of bar is excellent
Picked up the Cerakote Training Bar from American Barbell a couple months ago and have put in several training sessions with it by now. It has exceeded all my expectations. I was looking for a olympic lifts training bar (28 mm) and read reviews on how great the whip is on this bar. The reviews were spot on! This bar has excellent whip and very nice knurling. The composite bushings provide nice spin and coupled with the collar design this is the quietest barbell I have ever used. The hard chrome collars look amazing and are sure to last. What I like most about this barbell is the Cerakote finish. The finish is tacky and only requires chalk if your hands sweat. I opted for a dark grey color option and it looks really cool. I love that this bar is made in San Diego, CA.! I highly recommend.
