 Obsolete bars are guaranteed to arrive fully functional but may vary slightly from our 1st tier product (non-obsolete bars).   Bar sleeve may or may not include a visible weld.   Minor cosmetic blemishes may be present. 

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.

Cerakote bb

American barbell has been awesome. Due to the covid issue shipping was delayed but they were honest about it. When the lead time took longer I reached out and they responded quickly. Packaging was awesome especially compared to what I see competitors doing. As far as the bar itself goes I couldn't be happier. The coating is perfect. The gnurling is aggressive enough where I don't need chalk but it doesn't tear my hands. And as far as being a "closeout" bar the only thing I could tell from inspecting it was a dirt mark on the bar. I love this bar. And I was so impressed I went back and bought their bench. Ya I could've saved maybe 50 dollars with a competitor but the specs are far better at a comparable price, american made, and I'm a loyal customer.

Bar ok, shipping awful

I haven’t had a chance to test out the bar yet as my gym is still under construction. However, the bar arrived missing one end cap on the packaging and the other one hanging halfway off. The sleeves of my bar are scratched and dented, presumably from the lack of closed packaging. In other news, I am really pleased with American Barbell’s customer service and communication. I just wish the shipping packaging had been secure.
