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.

Texas power bar

Amazing quality and workmanship. Wonderful service also!

Great option!

First, I can't believe how fast this bar shipped. I ordered Tuesday night, it shipped the next day despite the 1-2 week lead time warning, and it was at my door Thursday afternoon!! This bar is beautifully made and the blue cerakote looks fantastic (more true blue than the bright blue I saw on my screen). The knurling feels great and the extra hand spacing plus slightly narrower diameter make this bar a great option.

Awesome bar!

I love my new Texas body building bar with the blue cerakote. I've only had it for about a month but it seems extremely well made and I expect it to last a lifetime since it is just for my personal use. Even with the abuse a bar takes in an open gym setting I would expect this bar to last a really long time. I love the different hand placement marks that comes with the body building bar. Also the knurling is not super aggressive, which is what I wanted, and provides a superior grip. But, if you are going super heavy, you might want the other bar they make that has really deep knurling for a better grip. I would highly recommend this bar and this company. The bar I ordered was in stock and I received it in about two days. (I live in the same state.) The best part of all, American made!

Texas Body Building Bar

Awesome Bar!!I love the knurling on this bar. Its got way better grip than gym bars but not so much that it hurts your hands. I also really like the three indicator marks on each side of the bar that keeps you good and even for different width presses from close to wide. Great product!! This is not your fathers Olympic bar. When you first see it you know how well this thing is built.

Great, quality bar!

Haven't found anything I don't like about this bar. The collars were beefier than expected. I highly recommend Texas Power Bars. In the middle of Covid-19, production and shipping was still good and would definitely recommend Texas Barbells to anyone looking for a quality bar.
