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.

Awesome all around bar

I was looking for something a little different and the Texas Bodybuilding bar knocked it out of the park. It is perfect for narrow grip bench press, RDLs, barbell curls, bent over rows, and I have even used it to deadlift. The knurling is perfect and love the 3 different width marks.

This is my first TPB and it won't be my last. Shipping was fast as well.

Fun bar to use!

Never got bar

Never got my bar yet but I believe it will be great.

Michael Moreau
Texas Bodybuilding Bar

Was a bit skeptical but I love it, great all around bar with good whip, I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants a softer bar compared to the power bar it’s a bit more fun to use and I love it.

John Flory
Amazing bar with stand-out features

Absolutely love this bar and love the non-traditional knurl marks for narrow, neutral, and wide grip to work different muscle groups. The closest knurl marks to center are powerlifting standard (I believe) and get progressively wider from there

Great All Purpose Bar

I bought this in bare steel with chrome sleeves when I was expanding my home gym. The 27mm diameter bar caught my interest as I prefer a narrower bar for certain lifts. This bar had great reviews so I bought it. This bar has a great knurl that’s tacky but not too aggressive. I love using this bar for close grip bench, front squats, barbell curls, and bent over rows. The three knurl marks are great for setting hand placement on accessory lifts where I place my grip closer to the center. I recommend this bar if you are buying your first bar for your home gym as well as anyone looking to add a bar to their collection that can be used for accessory lifts.

Solid all purpose bar with a design that makes it unique. Bonus points from me because it’s made in the South.
