A reliable, well rounded Olympic barbell for an awesome price.

Our next-generation basic bar, the Multi-Purpose Olympic Barbell is designed to be an all-around solution for bench press, squats, deadlifts, and the Olympic lifts (cleans, jerks, and snatches). It’s an excellent option for well-rounded garage gym athletes, as well as commercial gyms.

As a generalist bar, The Utility Bar is designed for people who don’t adhere to a particular strength sport and just love an excellent bar. With a 28.5mm diameter, it’s just a tad thicker than an Olympic weightlifting bar (28mm diameter) and a smidge thinner than a powerlifting bar (29mm diameter). Brass bushings means the sleeves and no bearings makes for a smooth but not over-rotation and an ultra-secure snap ring is used to keep it all together. A medium-light knurl won’t chew your hands up when power cleaning, but complemented with knurling in the middle means the bar has a better grip when squatting.

Featuring both Olympic and powerlifting marks, hand positioning is made easy for whatever movement you’re doing that day. Lightly ribbed sleeves help keep your plates from shifting during your workouts.

  • Built to Last
    There’s a lot of claims out there to the weight capacity of a bar, but we back it up with testing. At 1,000lbs capacity and 190psi tensile strength, this bar will stay with you even as you grow and smash through future personal bests.
  • In addition to excellent quality materials, it’s finished with a distinctive black zinc on the shaft and white zinc on the sleeves.

Multipurpose Bar

The Multipurpose Bar is the perfect addition to my home gym. It provides a good alt diameter to my 29mm power bar for accessory lifts and even the main lifts, though I still prefer a 29mm power bar for the heavy lifts on intensity days. The shaft coating is resilient and still looks like the day I took it out of the package. The sleeve coating has stayed in near-perfect condition, which is great considering I use steel plates that tend to mare up the sleeves. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the bar’s quality given the unbeatable price.

Outstanding

The bar feels amazing. Customer service was great. Weights fit outstandingly. Tell will tell of the quality. The packaging the bar came in wasn't all that great. And the delivery driver mustve used it a pole vault onto my front lawn. A little cleaning rag to get the dirt out of it and it's good to go
