REP 28.5mm Gladiator Mixed Use Barbell
Our Gladiator barbell is the best barbell we offer, and the 28.5mm makes this bar especially suited for Olympic Lifting, Cross Training, and HIIT Workouts. Choosing the right barbell is both an art and a science, but we have included the most important details below to make your choice as easy as possible. If you are looking for a barbell specifically for the Olympic lifts (Snatch and Clean & Jerk), please checkout the Gladiator WL model.
Strength & Whip: The increased 28.5mm shaft diameter offers an easy grip but provides some added stiffness for powerlifting style lifts, and at 200k yeild with a 1500 lb rating, bending this bar will not be an issue.
Coating: Hard chrome coating is the most rust resistance and lowest maintenance of any coating available. This is an expensive coating that is avoided by other bar manufacturers who typically use an oxide coating that rusts.
Spin: With 5 needle bearings, this bar provides incredible spin for those looking to do both the olympic movements and HIIT workouts.
Knurl: With a mild knurling, it has plenty of knurl for your heavy lifts, but not a shark tooth knurl that rips up your hands for higher rep workouts. We recommend using a bit of chalk to help with your harder or heavier workouts.
