American Barbell has launched the The Chewy Bar. It’s a stainless steel powerlifting barbell.
Powerlifting bars are the most common barbell used to perform squats, presses, and deadlifts. When getting a powerlifting bar, the feel of the knurling, the convenience of sliding big plates on and off, and the ability to endure the heaviest load without bending are some of the features that will tell you your bar is of high quality.
The Chewy Bar – new from American Barbell (and made in the USA):
