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...

Gungnir Allrounder - End Cap In Garage Gym
When you look at the Allrounder Bar from Gungnir, one of two thoughts is likely to pop into your head: 1.) Wow, this is amazing! 2.) Umm, this is solving a problem that doesn't exist.

You've seen it, right? Chris Duffin gnawing away at a competing power bar... Not literally, as in Chris himself, but rather his ever-so-awesome Kabuki Strength power bar.

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...

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...

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...
