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.

I can’t say enough how much I love this bar. In fact my bar from Rogue has taken a back seat to it because it’s so awesome. The knurling is awesome for grip and the bar is perfect for powerlifting.

This is a great bar for 5x5 programs.

This bar is almost perfect. The knurling is nice and deep perfect grip I am very confident, even without chalk, that I will be in full control for every set. My only criticism is the south bores are a bit to close together for me I'm 300 lbs and my legs are probably half that so it's hard to bet my legs close enough together for deadlift positions. Realistically though I can still use this with success and I couldn't really be happier. For $300 you probably won't find anything as nice or well machined used let alone new. Great work BOS! You guys rock I got some other stuff barbells curling bar plates etc all top tier gear!

Great Deadlift Bar

The price was great for what I believed to be a decent bar. The bar arrived 3 days later and I was really impressed, way above the decent expectation. The knurl on this bar is aggressive the design and quality are above average. This is a great powerlifting bar for a very fair price. Highly recommended.
