American Barbell Grizzly Power Bar Review

American Barbell Grizzly Power Bar End Cap Garage Gym Lab
Picture this for a second... The year is 1996. You're at home making some dinner and watching TV when a commercial comes on. A woman is chiseling away at a statue of a muscular, long-haired man. She places a buttered piece of bread on the pedestal that he's so eloquently leaning against when BAM... Fabio, in all his glory, busts through...

Vulcan Absolute Power Bar Review

Vulcan Absolute Power Bar End Cap Garage Gym Lab
Vulcan Strength is perennially underrated in the gym equipment space. Located in my hometown of Charlotte, NC, they're a veteran-owned company who has been around since 2009. In that time, they've built a reputation for creating high-quality pieces, especially barbells and plates. Their recent releases of the new Stainless Steel Power Bar and the updated Absolute Power Bar demonstrate their commitment...

Fringe Sport Weightlifting Bar Review

Fringe Sport Weightlifting Bar End Cap
Fringe Sport is beginning to really make a push into the barbell scene with more specificity in terms of lifting styles. They've recently launched the weightlifting bar, the hybrid bar, and the power bar, and they are doing so at very reasonable prices. In this review, I'll be taking a look at the weightlifting bar, which comes in at under...

Fringe Sport Power Bar Review

Fringe Sport Power Bar End Cap
The Fringe Sport Power Bar is a relative newcomer on the power bar scene, but I've got a feeling this bar will be around for a while. Priced below $300, this offering from Fringe Sport represents a nice value when compared to some of the other power bars out there that are more expensive. While you're not going to get some...

Rogue Ohio Power Bar Review

Rogue Ohio Power Bar End Cap
True of False: The Rogue Ohio Power Bar is the best value power bar currently on the market. While there are some really nice power bars being introduced, some of which provide excellent value, it's hard to argue that the Rogue Ohio Power Bar doesn't offer the best bang for your buck. It's well made, it has great specs, it looks...

Vulcan Stainless Steel Power Bar Review

Vulcan Stainless Steel Power Bar End Cap
You can officially add Vulcan to the stainless steel power bar club, joining companies like American Barbell, Rogue Fitness, Ivanko, and Rep Fitness, among others. And boy did they enter with a bang. Their recent release of the stainless steel power bar attracted quite a lot of attention, and rightfully so. This bar has some unique qualities that the majority of...

Rep Fitness Stainless Steel Power Bar Review

Rep Fitness Stainless Steel Power Bar End Cap
Stainless steel bars are becoming an increasingly popular option among lifters due to their superb oxidation resistance and overall feel. There are a few equipment manufacturers who have either already introduced stainless bars or are in the process of introducing stainless bars for mass production. These include American Barbell, Rogue Fitness, Vulcan Strength, York, Ivanko, etc... As a company known to...

Is it just me or did Cerakote bars become all the rage seemingly overnight? In the increasingly competitive equipment space, if you're not innovating or at least keeping pace with the innovators, you're putting yourself behind the proverbial 8-ball. The company behind the Cerakote frenzy? American Barbell. Since introducing Cerakote on barbells, companies like Rogue Fitness, Fringe Sport, and Wright Equipment have all...
