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.
This is my fifth American barbell. Best barbells on the market.
We ordered these bars at the height of mid-pandemic home-gym frenzy, and I nearly expired from impatience waiting for it to arrive. I've nearly forgotten the angst, though, because this bar is such a pleasure to use. We are dedicated crossfitters, and we are so happy with these bars. They feel amazing in the olympic lifts - whippy, smooth effortless spin, quiet when cycling lifts. I didn't realize how nice my bar was until I got back into the gym, and used the old beat-up bars - what a difference! A few months ago our gym bought some new Bella bars from Rogue, and I got to do a side-by-side comparison - only there was no comparison. The brand-new Bella was so disappointing compared to my AB Training Bar - it felt stiff and awkward compared to my smooth and wonderful bar. I am so thankful that Rogue was sold out of Bella's and I got this bar instead! I would definitely buy another bar from AB!!!
Great! Love the spin. Love the grip. Love the feel overall.
beautiful barbell.very well made. knurling looks light, but it is surprisingly very grippy
