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 Lone Star Power Bar - Cover - Garage Gym Lab
Fringe Sport recently dropped the mic with their triple release of the new Lone Star Power Bar, the Longhorn Buffalo Bar, and the CeraColt Olympic Bar. Looking at their full barbell lineup, I think they may have just added three new starters to the roster. I've owned the original Fringe Sport Power Bar for over a year - this new bar...

Rep Fitness PowerSpeed Bar Review

Rep Fitness PowerSpeed Bar Garage Gym Lab
After what felt like an eternity, the aggressive Rep Fitness PowerSpeed bar has arrived! If you got a taste of the Rep stainless steel power bar (review here), you know what I'm talking about. That bar, which released in 2017 offers more of a medium cut. That is, it's not very aggressive. It's a really nice bar, no doubt, but it...

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...

Bells of Steel Utility Bar - End Cap - Garage Gym Lab
Don't look now, but Bells of Steel is quickly making a name for themselves in the gym equipment industry. Originally launched as a Canadian company in 2010 selling kettlebells, the company has greatly increased its product catalog to include racks, bars, plates, benches, etc... Not only that, but they've also expanded into the United States with their warehouse in Indianapolis, IN. This...

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...

Rep Fitness Power Bar EX - Cover - Garage Gym Lab
The Rep Deep Knurl Power Bar EX: THE most anticipated power bar for me over the last year. It feels like an eternity since Rep Fitness first mentioned that they were going to be creating an aggressive stainless steel power bar to complement their existing stainless steel power bar v2 (review here). While I certainly enjoy the v2 power bar, particularly...

Mammoth mam·moth  ˈma-məth  Noun: Something immense of its kind Example: American Barbell is a mammoth in the barbell industry.
