The worlds first completely balanced, geared, reciprocating, CONVERGING barbell.
The science of chest hypertrophy has spoken by the leading authorities of exercise science.
Converging is King.
3 internal gears milled into solid steel, using a 3 axis, CNC, milling machine.
Both handles contain 120 self lubricating bearings that constantly rotate within each handle: a total of 240 bearings.
A dynamic affect/effect on the pectorals and deltoids.
Much less weight load (about 1/2) needed on barbell 2.0 for superior results/hypertrophy. Resulting in less chance of injury.
Not for squats of deadlifts (wouldn’t logically be needed anyways).
Also great for bent over rows, upright rows, curls.
See accessories for barbell 2.0: articulating handles and base supports.
Mass = Energy x Strong Theory (squared).
- (Each handle) rated to 562lbs (1124lbs total) dynamic load, 793lbs (1586 total) static; . Seriously overbuilt components. Total bar rating now 600 lbs (upper body exercises only).
- 3 Internal Gears.
- Each handle contains 120, self lubricating bearings (240 total!).

Barbell 2.0 (weight:47lbs).
Many IFBB pros and advanced lifters, including some Mr. Olympias, rarely use the Barbell for bench pressing due to injuries sustained by it, or fear of recurrence. Barbell 2.0 promotes stronger/more complete recruitment of the pectorals (or delts if military). Faster mass building/better symmetry. Simply put, for muscle building, there is no reason to use the static olympic barbell for said exercise.
With accessory handles, Barbell 2.0 can also be used for bent over rows, curls and other imaginative exercises our customers have come up with.
Neither is it a Dumbbell. Dumbbells recruit MANY other muscles besides the pectorals when doing bench press, this is why the bench press has always traditionally been the go to for chest development. Barbell 2.0 looks like a traditional barbell- because it is! Except, you not only have to push the bar up, but the multi geared and engineered, conjoined handles, must be pushed in and out.
Converging movements have proven to be superior for muscle building. The affect/effect, on the pectorals (or delts, when doing military), is astonishing. Complete recruitment of the pectoral muscle complex, with quicker, more pronounced muscle exhaustion, is what a complex movement should provide and what Barbell 2.0 delivers.
