The Texas Bench Bar was created for the big bench pressers.  This bar will stay straight with big weight on it without feeling too big in your hands.  The least amount of flex equals the shortest distance of travel from top of lift, to chest and back again.  The Texas Bench Bar is the standard  bench bar in the APC.




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.

Fantastic Bar! Won't find any better

Just received a chrome Texas Bench Bar. Could not be more pleased. It has quickly become my favorite bar. Great knurling. Great feel to it. Finish is top draw, it looks beautiful. I got tired of waiting for the folks from Kabuki to make more bars for us ordinary folks. Been waiting literally for months for them to say they are making more chrome or nickel coated bars. Still on their waitlist after nearly a year! No need to subject yourself to their BS. These bars are as good if not better than what the folks on Oregon produce and more importantly, you can actually get one!!!! How novel. Mine came in under two weeks. This is my second Texas bar. I have previously purchased their deadlift bar, and I love both. You will not be disappointed.
