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 $300. 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.
  • 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.

The Best Value Worth the Money

This bar was packaged just like in the video. I made 3 videos and uploaded them to YouTube. This bar is beautiful. The thin collars have company name on inside, logo on outside, spin is minimal, and the ridges on the sleeves genius never have I seen that. I gotta get the oil off and I'm ready. Also the 15's and 10's machine plates perfect and within tolerance. U have my business 4 life

Great bar

This bar was packaged better than any other barbell I've received. It had foam wrapping to keep it centered in the tube and plastic wrap to keep the oil on. The knurling is aggressive and consistent. I didn't find any manufacturing defects or issues with the bar. It feels better than the price. With deadlifts it doesn't roll out of the hands. Squats stay firm on the back thanks to the center knurl and the bar has no whip with either. Very happy with this bar and how it performs and the price is a nice bonus.

Best Value Power Bar

After almost a year of use, this bar is one of my favorite pieces of equipment in my gym. I love the raw steel shaft. Unlike the raw version of the Ohio power bar, this bar does not have raw sleeves, which is nice. Over time the shaft develops a nice patina. I live in Ohio and I don’t clean or oil my barbell very often. When I do, I use a nylon brush to scrape off dirt and grime, then I use a rag to coat it in baby oil. I use another rag to wipe off the excess. I think the bar looks great. I haven’t cleaned it for a couple weeks and I just took some photos of the knurling with my macro setup so I attached them here. The knurling feels great and the bar inspires confidence when in use. The bar is greet, not just for the price point, but in general.

This is a very good barbell whatever issues there were in some of the old reviews I can say they’ve definitely rectified all those issues. . My bar was well packed and arrived in perfect condition. The specs are IPF knurling is just right the bar really sticks to your hands all I can say is if your looking for a bar that’s well built and feels great in your hands don’t hesitate to pick one up I couldn’t be more satisfied.
