Texas Power Bar Zip Up

*Black Hooded Zip Up

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.

Comfortable Sweater

Very comfortable sweater, they do run small, size up if you want it loose, still very happy with the purchase.

My first ....

Love this Power Bar Zip up....already taken it running outside here in Austin, and have used it as a regular jacket on cool nights out. I'm also going to use it, because it's not too bulky, on cold days when I lift in my home gym. 100 per cent knockout piece of gear. Blessings from Austin. Mike Capps

Literally everything I’ve purchased from TPB has been consistently Great quality. Even had one “hiccup” with a lid from a shaker (due to improper handling by the shipping company) and TPB replaced it free of charge! You can’t ask for better quality products AND Customer service!

*No, this is NOT a paid review either.

Texas power bar/ zip up sweatshirt

As a former competitive powerlifter I have several different bars, ssb, cambered bar, Texas squat bar, and a buffalo bar. I’ve never had a “quote un quote” power bar. I know that several of your competitors sell power bars. But in my opinion Texas power bars are second to none, subsequently my purchase was a “ no brainer” The Texas power bar is the bar that all others are measured by. Unfortunately the zip up sweatshirt that I purchased was too small, I gave it to my better half, she loves it. Thank you.
