The Titanium USA Powerlifting Bar features stainless steel bushings, a black zinc oxide coated shaft and hard chrome sleeves for maximum comfort and corrosion resistance. The sleeves are held in place with premium grade snap rings.
This is the ultimate bar for squats and bench press as the shaft is thicker (30mm) than other Olympic barbells, plus a centre knurl so it has better grip on your shirt during squats.
The larger diameter shaft makes it more comfortable to use as sits better on the shoulders and easier to use during the bench press.
It's also a great bar to use during deadlifts even under heavy loads and has been engineered with an aggressive knurling for maximum grip.
So if you are after a bar for all your Powerlifting needs then this is the bar to get.

When choosing your barbell it is important to understand what the different terminology means, as there is often a lot of industry jargon that manufacturers and re-sellers use.
Bar strengths are reported in three areas: tensile strength, yield strength, and the PSI rating.
Tensile strength is the maximum load the barbell can support without fracturing, breaking or bending to the point where it’s unable to return back to the original shape. So a higher tensile strength generally means the bar can tolerate heavier loads and is able to handle repeated drops during training or competitions.
Yield strength is basically how much weight the bar can handle before it will become deformed — that is, it won’t return to perfect straightness. This is generally listed as it Maximum Load rating.
Now you know some of the terminology, it is important to look for a bar with a PSI rating of 150,000 or more and a minimum of 700lb weight capacity.
