Technique Barbell

OVERVIEW

REP’s lightweight, aluminum Technique Barbell is ideal for Olympic weightlifting training. It features light/medium-depth knurl with dual (IWF and IPF) knurl markings for even hand placement on the barbell, no matter the lift. The knurl is enough for a good grip for lighter loads, but not so much that you’ll tear up your hands during high-volume training. The lack of center knurling also allows for comfort during high-volume training.

This bar weighs 15lbs and is 72” long in total/51.5” between collars, so it fits on standard-width Olympic squat and power racks. The Technique Barbell has a bushing sleeve; this produces plenty of rotation, but it spins slower, making it great for training technique. Its bare aluminum shaft with black zinc sleeves creates a sharp, contrasted look. With a 28mm diameter, this bar is compatible with regular plates (with 2” diameter holes), but it has a 200lbs max. It’s intended for technique training using light loads.

FAQS

  • Can I use this barbell for my regular lifting too?

    This is a learning barbell, not meant for heavy loads. If you're able to lift over 135lbs, it's ideal for the life of your Technique Barbell to move to a heavier barbell. Check out our Sabre or Gladiator barbells if this applies to you.

  • Are your barbells compatible with other branded plates?

    REP’s barbells are designed to work with any standard plates featuring 2” diameter center holes.

  • What is the purpose of knurl markings on a barbell?

    There are two major standards for where to put knurl markings on a barbell: International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) and International Weightlifting Federation (IWF). The knurl markings themselves allow athletes to set up properly for the lift they are attempting and provide a visual for even hand placement on the barbell.

  • What is the difference between bushing and bearing sleeves?

    Both bushing and bearing sleeves produce sufficient sleeve rotation, but ball or needle bearings allow for a faster, smoother, quieter spin and have a more reliable turnover for maximum loads, which is a better fit for Olympic-style lifts. By comparison, a bushing sleeve is more efficient for powerlifting movements, which are slower and more strength focused.

  • How do I take care of my barbell?

    You’ll want to remove dirt or chalk from the knurling with a brush and oil on a microfiber cloth. You also should occasionally remove the external sleeve to oil and fully clean it. Check out the REP Barbell Maintenance Video in the Video Gallery section above for more information.

  • Does the Technique Barbell have a warranty?

    Yes, it comes with a 1-year warranty.
