Standard Straight Bar (Red Tape)

A standard barbell on a matted gym floor with red duct tape on both ends of the collars.

Most of our Standard Straight Bars are Texas Power Bars. These bars are tested to hold a lot of weight. They’re a great bar for squats, deadlift, or other heavy lifts. They can also be used for cleans and snatches.

These bars are in great shape, and we want to keep them that way. Do not use these bars on pins in the rack. When used for cleans and snatches these bars may be dropped in a controlled manner. However, they are NOT meant to be dropped when loaded with heavy weight.

If you’re going for a heavy squat, use knowledgeable spotters and the Spud Inc. Suspension Straps. If you’re going for a heavy deadlift, make sure your grip strength matches your ego so you don’t drop the bar at the top.

The Standard Straight Bar weighs 45 pounds. We have all of these bars marked with RED Tape.

Bench Bar (Yellow Tape)

A standard barbell on a matted gym floor with yellow duct tape on both ends of the collars.

These bars are a bit lighter duty and should therefore only be used for Bench Press and Overhead Press. We suppose you could use them for a Curl and Tricep-specific work, too.

Because they’re not as strong as our Standard Straight Bar, they should NOT be used for squats, deadlifts, or any other lift you use a lot of weight for. Do not use these bars on pins in the rack. These bars should never be dropped.

The Bench Bar weighs 45 pounds. We have all of these bars marked with YELLOW Tape.

Texas Deadlift Bar (Blue Tape)

A standard barbell on a matted gym floor with blue duct tape on both ends of the collars.

These bars are specifically designed for deadlifts and that is the ONLY thing they should be used for.

They’re longer and thinner so that the bar has a little play in it. They also don’t have knurling in the center.

Do not use these bars on pins in the rack. We actually prefer that you don’t even set them in hooks in a rack. These bars should never be dropped.

If you want to use this bar to pull from an elevated surface, use the 2×2 mats and stack them appropriately. The mats are each 3/4″ thick.

The Texas Deadlift Bar weighs 45 pounds. We have all of these bars marked with BLUE Tape.

Beater Bar (Green Tape)

A standard barbell on a matted gym floor with green duct tape on both ends of the collars.

These bars are old Standard Straight Bars that have been through some wars. As a result, they are a little beat up and some are even slightly bent.

They’re still solid bars and can be used for any type of lift at the gym. This is the only type of bar that’s ok to be used on pins in the rack (great for Pin Pulls). Even though they aren’t in perfect shape, they still should NOT be dropped.

The Beater Bar weighs 45 pounds. We have all of these bars marked with neon GREEN Tape.

Standard Trap Bar

This is the classic version. It’s great if you’re new to deadlifting and aren’t ready to work on setting up with a straight bar. You’ll also see many of our seasoned lifters using it for some heavy pulls.

Do not use these bars on pins in the rack. These bars should never be dropped.

The Standard Trap Bar weighs 50 pounds.

Rogue Trap Bar

This is the souped up version of a trap bar. It is a little bigger and longer so more plates can be loaded. We got this monster because a number of our members can max out the Standard Trap Bar and we’re not interested in raining on anyone’s gains parade.

Do not use these bars on pins in the rack. These bars should never be dropped.

The Rogue Trap Bar weighs 60 pounds.

Swiss Bar

The Swiss Bar is great for any kind of pressing variation (Bench Press, Incline Press, Overhead Press, etc.) as well as Lying Tricep Extensions and Hammer Curls.

Do not use this bar on pins in the rack. This bar should never be dropped.

The Swiss Bar weighs 35 pounds.

14-Inch Rackable Cambered Bar

The Rackable Cambered Bar is great for squatting variations and for Good Mornings.

Do not use this bar on pins in the rack. This bar should never be dropped.

The Rackable Cambered Bar weighs 65 pounds.

Safety Squat Bar

The Safety Squat Bar is great for Squats and Good Morning variations. If you have a shoulder, arm, or hand injury that prevents you from getting under a straight bar, this bar could be your answer.

Do not use this bar on pins in the rack. This bar should never be dropped.

The Safety Squat Bar weighs 75 pounds. Adding the handle extensions (as shown in the picture) increases it to 95 pounds.

Fat Bar

The Fat Bar is a thicker straight bar that has knurling. It is a great option when you want more of a grip challenge doing any movement you’d use a standard Straight Bar for.

This bar can be used for seated pin presses in the rack, but should not be used on pins otherwise. This bar should never be dropped.

The Fat Bar weighs 70 pounds.

Axle

A Rogue Axel on a matted gym floor with a red safety collar on either end of the bar.

The Axel is a thicker straight bar that is completely smooth. This bar is commonly used for strongman movements like a clean and press. The smooth surface gives you even more of a grip challenge than you would get with the Fat Bar.

Do not use this bar on pins in the rack. This bar should never be dropped.

The Axle weighs 25 pounds.

Strongman Log

The Log is another strongman implement that allows you to add variation to your cleans, overhead presses, and bent over rows.

Do not use this bar on pins in the rack. This bar should never be dropped.

The Log weighs 80 pounds.

Each handle weighs 20 pounds.

The second pair was made by big Tyler Hartman. Aren’t they beautiful? These bad boys are for when you get serious about strongman.

Yep, Ironworks has one. It is great for pumping up the bis and tris and can be used for many accessory movements.

This bar should never be dropped.

The EZ Curl Bar weighs 15 pounds.

Ironworks also has a couple of these classics. They’re great for neutral grip accessory movements.
