Benefits of the Axle Bars

    Whether you’re into grappling sports, arm wresting or just want to build your grip strength, axle bars are a game-changer. Their unique design builds your grip in ways that typical Olympic barbells can’t match. The thicker 46mm diameter is harder to hold onto and the black powder coat offers a light texture but there’s no actual knurling, so your fingers, hands, and forearms are forced to work harder to hold onto them which results in increased grip strength over time. But not only will you build a thicker set of forearms, you’ll be a step closer to unlocking that sweet party trick of tearing a phonebooks in half — just be prepared for SERIOUS forearm pumps in the meantime 💪🏻
    Don’t care for grip training? No biggie. Whether you’re training in your home gym, garage, or outdoors, axle bars can be used for a wide range of exercises to add some spice to your workouts, from deadlifts and squats to presses and rows. They’re offered in two lengths: short (60″) for better portability and long (84″), but only the LONG axle bar fits correctly in a power rack. And unlike an Olympic barbell, the sleeves don’t spin on axle bars which offers an interesting twist on those traditional barbell-based exercises. So even if you’re not training for strongman/strongwoman, you can still benefit from it.
    If you compete in Strongman/Strongwoman, then training with axle bars is a must. Axle bar deadlifts and the continental clean & press seen often in competitions, so training these lifts throughout the year gives you practice that your opponents might not have — giving you the edge come competition time. And if you already enjoy lifting weird and awkward things like kegs, sandbags, and little children large furniture items, then you’ll most certainly enjoy using axle bars. Word of caution though: when you friends see you lifting with an axle bar, you’ll most certainly be recruited to help them move. There’s always a drawback of being strong, eh? 🏠
