    Yeah they look alright, a little pricey though, especially when you consider you can get a multi grip bar for much less

    T-grip barbell

    We have a multi grip bar at the gym, like comparing a foot ball to a baseball, its allot differant and way more versatile. The way its shaped you can get more range. Can also be used as an ez-curl bar. I see some guys doing shrugs, deads, and squats with it too, The price does seem little high tho....probably made in USA

    Shrugs, deads, and squats, huh? That seems pointless, bro, sorry. All of those exercises, with the exception of using a shrug bar or a cambered squat bar, or maybe a SSB, should be done with a straight barbell, not that bar. It looks interesting enough I guess, but I really don't see how it would be better or more useful than a multi grip bar. Definately doesn't look more versatile.

    T-grip bar

    I dont know bro... since its been at my gym I see some guys doing allot of differant things that Ive never seen done with any other parallel grip bar, I guess that strait bar in the middle makes it more versatile and allows you to get more range. What I see most is Front squats, rows of course, shrugs front and back, push presses, hammer curls and almost everyone has been using it for a ez-curl bar too it has a nice angle on that inside grip....The owner of the gym just ordered another one, I think he got the 5ft one

    Cool, sounds like people like it, but I for one won't be adding that to my home gym anytime soon. Too expensive and there are a lot more pieces of equipment that I want to drop 400 bucks on, hell, thats what I paid for my power cage. Very overpriced for what it is

    I hear ya. Looks like a pretty nice bar, but I agree that the price is absurd.

    But you could do cleans with the t bar and you cant do that with the multi grip bar. It would mimic a log clean

    T-Grip bar

    true, I see them doing cleans with it, when I do push presses, because of that strait bar in the middle I dont have to arch my back and put my head way back like I would have to do with the multi grip bar or a log press. I can get the same range that I would get with the strait bar.

    T-Grip bar

    Yeah, Ive seen that log bar, looks like someone made it in there back yard.... cant be used for allot of the functions like the T-Grip Bar, the way those diamond shaped handles are on the T-Grip makes it more versatile and comfortable to use...

    Thumbs up

    I like the 5 foot bar for skull crushers then right into close grips.

    There Olympic double Handel straight and angled bar are awesome for any type of pressing especially for overheads .

    We also have there flat Handel tricep attachment that is great for stiff arm pulls, press downs , and especially overhead extensions.

    My wife and I bought the group fitness set a few months ago and been selling out te group class every week.

    I can say enough good things about this company the owner and creator Tim Is a good guy and is very passionate about his products . This company is going to be growing strong in the next several years to come.
