Rogue Fitness just dropped their new 32mm squat bar. I don’t think I put up numbers to justify this bar, but I sure as hell do want to pick one up anyways! I’m currently using a Westside Powerbar 2.0 to squat with but my numbers are getting higher and higher, so that should justify the purchase, amirite?!
32mm squat bar is going for $445
Also on Rogue’s site, the Boneyard Bar section looks like it’s being replenished! Right now there are some great deals on pretty much all sized barbells, but the best pickup is the 28mm Oly bar for only $250!
If you’re on the fence about picking up a Boneyard bar, don’t be. I just got a 28mm training bar in that was literally brand new, with normal end caps! Even though you don’t get a warranty, Rogue equipment holds up and I’ve never had any of their bars bend on me!
ROGUE 32MM SQUAT BAR
The 32MM Squat Bar is another Rogue-exclusive, Ohio-built power bar, featuring a deep, coarse knurl pattern for optimal “stick” and an oversized stainless steel shaft for reduced whip/flex on heavy loads. We sent the prototype through the gauntlet of abuse (aka product testing) at Westside Barbell, and only after they gave it their approval did we move forward into mass production.
At a length of 94.49”, the Squat Bar is considerably longer than a standard Oly bar (our Ohio Bar is 86.75”), with 56” between the sleeves and a loadable sleeve length of 16.795” (vs. 16.4” on the Ohio Bar). The 32mm diameter stainless steel shaft has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI, and the knurling runs across its entire length, with clearcut powerlifting marks and a center mark included. The aggressive knurl pattern ensures a firm grip without being sharp or abrasive.
