- It's a Barbell. Don't over think it. Simply takes the bad out and adds a lot of good.
- Designed for upper body work only, but built to take years of punishment.
- Not for squats or dead lifts (although we've seen 550lbs bouncing on it on Deads.)
- Not a specialty bar. This is just the replacement to the good ol' standby for upper body.
- Better overall pectoral recruitment; better Central Nervous System eliciter.
- Only requires about half the weight you normally lift WITH faster muscle exhaustion.
- GEARED, GEARED and Balanced. Both handles are connected, via internal GEARS.
- This bar is geared. That's what makes it special. You can't see them, but they are THERE!
- Always balanced. Allows user to push a bar like hammerstrength machine arcs.
- Doesn't feel like a dumbbell. Feels more like freeweight hammerstrength machine. But not...
- Rehab rotator cuffs and insertion point injuries.
- Prevent rotator cuff and insertion point injuries.
- Drop the Ego, lower the weight and still makes strength AND size gains, even in rehab.
- The motion is not reproducible: dumbbells, machines...nothing feels like Barbell 2.0.
- (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!).
- E=MS(squared): Energy=Mass x Strong Theory (squared).

Bench press, military press. 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. The STB looks like a traditional barbell- because it is! Except, you not only have to push the bar up, but the multi geared and engineered, joined handles, must be pushed in and out. Compound 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 the STB delivers.
