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 is finished in black zinc and the sleeves in hard chrome for added durability and corrosion resistance and features a crisp knurl pattern with just the right amount of tack.
The bar sleeves are precision machined and each sleeve 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.
Cosmetic blemishes may be present. Bars are guaranteed to arrive fully functional but may vary from non-closeout bars. Please note, all sales are final and there is no warranty coverage. May ship with blank caps and may have single or dual-ring knurl marks.
Discounted or free shipping offers do not apply to closeout products.

Bar was listed as having a sub-standard finish on close out sale, arrived well packed and looks great. Excellent all round bar with a good price point for the quality.
After using a sub $100 CAP barbell that eventually fell apart (literally, the welds of the sleeve came out), I was in the market get a new barbell that was quality. I looked around, and eventually found AB and their close out sale. Initially I was weary because I didn't think that the color or knurling or whatever would be to my taste but then had an epiphany: the color of my barbell is irrelevant when I am under load. After using this barbell I can say this is the most solid metal pole I've ever touched! So much so that every time I throw on my old rusty weights I'm upset that I am making this beautiful bar dirty :[. I got this Bar for $224. Its amazing. The OD "off" coloring is so much cooler than typical black, they should just sell OD green for an extra $25. Be prepared to buy a wire brush to clean chalk out of your knurling. This bar is so pretty you'll want to keep it in pristine shape. Probably should've purchased two. 1 for looking, the other for moving.
Excellent packaging and the bar is very solid.
I've used several different barbells and this one is the best I've put my hands on by far. The bar diameter is just right and keeps hand fatigue at bay. The knurling is just enough for a solid grip and not too much to shred your hands. The hard chrome sleeves are smooth, durable, and spin without any resistance. The build quality is superb and I'm positive this bar will last forever. What a great value too!
Great Bar, I had been using the Fringe Bomba V2 and this is a significantly better barbell.
