History

The Texas All American Bar was designed early 2018 and is already a hit! This bar fills a void and is very versatile. Crafted from the same starting shaft as The Texas Power Bar it has the same strength and durability as our original bar. With center knurl to help when your squatting. 32” hand space rings for power type training and 36” hand space ring for cross training. The knurling is less aggressive than the Texas Power Bar. Simply the best all around gym bar available.

Center knurl






When I started lifting weights with Olympic bars back in the 1960’s, I noticed that there was hardly any grip. The knurling on these bars was so light when the bars were new, that now years later they were almost slick. The sleeves were held on to the bar with a threaded end cap and the inside collars were held in place with a set screw. Each sleeve consisted of three pieces.



The Goal
was to create a bar that would have and keep a better knurled grip. A bar, whose sleeves wouldn’t slide in to the center. A maintenance free bar.

The Result - The Texas Power Bar

Proudly Made in the USA Since 1980. The shafts are center less ground, demagnetized and oiled to the max before shipping to Texas. Once at our production facility, we machine and then knurl each shaft to create a grip that is still the best in the industry. Texas Power Bars have different finishes available including black zinc and chrome plating.The sleeves are are available raw or chrome plated.

Big tensile strength numbers sound very impressive and we have them but, the proof is on the platform. Hundreds of state, national, international and world powerlifting records have been and continue to be set and broken on the The Texas Power Bar.

Best bar I have ever used. Finish and knurling are perfect. Shipping was extremely fast. Definitely cant go back to using just any bar. If I'm ever in the market for another bar in the future, it will be from texas power bars.

All American Bar - excellent

I bought this bar in February of 2020 and wanted to own it a while before posting a review. I can now state with absolute confidence that this is an outstanding bar. The knurling is indeed ideal and the costumer service is exceptional. My first bar was damaged during shipping and as soon as I contacted the support staff, I received a phone call the next day to initiate the return process. A new bar was on the way as soon as I sent a tracking number to the original bar. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the bar or the company - SOLID.

Perfect All-around Bar

I love this bar. I got it because I wanted an all-around bar with center knurling that could be used for mostly deadlifts, squats, and benching. I own an Ohio bar, and like the light knurling for high rep sets but it lacks center knurling. I got an Ohio Power Bar and gave it a solid try over a few months, but it made my hands bleed every time I deadlifted heavy. Heavy to me is a 330 lb+ deadlift. I tried to be “tough” and work through it but ultimately decided to seek a bar with center knurling that was less painful and wouldn’t rip my calluses off. I took a shot and ordered the All American Bar based on online reviews and reputation. I don’t regret the purchase like I did with the OPB! It’s perfect. Very well-made and is excellent for the three power lifts plus everything else. I can go “heavy” while maintaining grip and not tearing my hands up. It’s also good for quick, high rep sets. The cerakote looks like new after a few months too. No idea how to maintain it though. A little 3 in 1 oil has kept the sleeves perfect in my muggy basement.
