The American Barbell Training Bar is a solid, versatile barbell for just about any application. We've tested it against the day-to-day abuse 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 also allows for excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars. The shaft and sleeves are finished in hard chrome for added durability and corrosion resistance, and the knurl pattern is crisp with just the right amount of tack.
The bar sleeves are precision machined and each one is coated with hard chrome for protection against dropping and impact. Sleeves rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.

I’ve been using the Training Bar for a few months. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The knurl marks are perfect, no feathering at the edges. The recessed welds are beautiful. The hard chrome finish is a nice matte finish and holding up well, no scratches on the sleeves. The knurling is fine but very grippy. Great for deadlifts and doesn’t tear up your hands. The best part is the quiet sleeves, the tolerances on the bushings must be very tight. There is zero noise from the sleeves. This is a great general purpose bar. This will make me buy another AB product in the future.
Love my barbell
Love it So nice to have a new barbell Workmanship is amazing
My third bar from them. Exceptional workmanship!
High quality and a delight to use. No rattles like other brands. Smooth rotation. Grippy, but not aggressive knurl. Love it.
Bought this 15k bar for my wife. Its her first bar and we're both impressed with the quality and performance. The AB Training bar (bushing) is a great value.
Must have for everyday use
Looks great and feels even better. Comfortable in your hands. My boys and I use the AB training bar for most lifts and my wife and daughters use the Bella. That bar looks and feels like a toy, but the AB is the real deal.
