A revolutionary powerlifting bar at an unbeatable price.

Intended explicitly for powerlifting and to meet IPF specs, the Barenaked Powerlifting Bar is designed for people whose three favorite words are squat, bench and deadlift.

Benefits of the Barenaked Powerlifting Bar

The Barenaked Powerlifting Bar is the best powerlifting bar you can get for $200. A bold claim, I know, so here’s why having this bar in your gym will put you on a gainz-train to Muscleville.

  • Meets IPF specs. In powerlifting, training with competition-like conditions gives you a serious advantage over your competitors. Designed precisely to meet IPF standards, this bar will give you the competition-like practice you need — so you can leave it all on the platform.
  • Cheese-grater knurling. There’s not much worse than missing a new deadlift PR by losing your grip on a smooth-knurled barbell. With a bare steel finish and aggressive knurling, this bar will stick to your hands like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth.
  • Serious stiffness. With a 210,000 PSI tensile strength and 1,500lb capacity, bar whip is non-existent on this bad boy. After all, nothing beats that glued-to-your-back feeling when squatting record-setting weights. For more info, check out Deadlifting with a Stiff Power Bar.
  • Ribbed chrome sleeves. Shifting plates while lifting can lead to an uneven bar, increasing your risk of injury and at best, throwing off your technique. The ribbed chrome sleeves on the Barenaked Powerlifting Bar help grip the plates to keep them anchored in place. Best friends are great, but technique mastery takes the cake.

IMPORTANT: For bare steel barbells, we take extra precautions to reduce any oxidation/rusting while in storage and transit by coating the barbell in oil. That said, small rust spots may be visible when you receive it. We advise cleaning the bar with some simple green cleaner and a BBQ brush, then wipe dry with a microfiber cloth.

Solid Powerlifting Bar

Everything you want in a powerlifting bar. Came for the price, stayed for the knurling. Garage gym reviews sent me here.

Great bar

I led this up on a flash sale as I wanted a second power bar. The knurling is great if you like aggressive knurling. Super grippy and deadlifts feel awesome. Shipping was quick. The tube the bar came in had some tears and was pulled apart when my bar arrived. Despite this there was no issues to the bar. Both ends were supported by packaging and the shaft had oil on it and wrapped in plastic wrap. No issues of rust on the bar.

Great bar

Have wanted a second bar for my home gym for a while. Saw there was a flash sale and this bar was on sale. Shipping was quick. The cardboard tube was broken but there was no damage to the bar. Bar was packaged well with packaging on the ends of the bar. The knurling had a good amount of oil and wrapped in plastic wrap. No signs of rust on the bar. Knurling on the bar is great and so are the sleeves. I have started to use this bar as my primary powerlifting bar and would highly recommend.
