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. This model is coated with a Cerakote Shaft in your choice of color, with Chrome Sleeves.

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.

Dead & Bench

We have both the Texas dead and bench bar at Power Forge. And let me tell you; with all nine years of my lifting experience these are the best bars ever made! I use the dead bar for power clean. And it has the perfect amount of whip! The bench bar feels superb to all other bars that I have used in the pursuit of monster bench numbers. Can’t wait until I have the opportunity to try the monster squat or just the regular squat bar!

Best Ever!

I “upgraded” to the same Texas Power Bench Bar” they use at national level competitions and I have not been disappointed in the slightest. Per usual, the grip on this bar is absolutely awesome, like all other Texas Power Bars I’ve purchased or used. I highly recommend this bench bar over any other available on the market. I’m now 75 and bench 350 in a single ply shirt. My cerakote bar is orange and automatically attracts attracts positive attention!
