Olympic power bars undergo a tremendous amount of stress. These bars have to be designed to withstand some of the most rigorous use known to man. We offer commercial power bars by Body Solid, Troy Barbell VTX and York Barbell Company.
Power bars a typically much stiffer than Olympic lifting bars. Static test is typically around 1200 to 1500 lbs. However, a better way to rate power bars is with p.s.i. rating. Bars offering 190,000 plus p.s.i. are typically the strongest bars available. Bars in excess of 220,000 p.s.i. are awesome and the Troy VTX GOB-1800 testing out a 270K p.s.i. is insanely strong.
Power bars are typically best for commercial fitness centers, CrossFit gyms, high school athletics, colleges and other heavy use settings. These bars are by far the most durable of all Olympic bars.
