Rogue 28MM Training Bar - Black Zinc

The Rogue 28MM Training Bar is designed, machined, and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio using the same steel shaft and uniform knurl pattern as our Olympic WL Bar. In place of the Oly Bar’s bearing sleeves, however, the Training Bar is assembled with bronze bushings in the style of the Rogue Ohio Bar. The result is a more cost-efficient, intermediate bar for athletes who still want the look and feel of a competition-ready Olympic barbell.

The quality U.S. steel used in the 28MM Training Bar meets a minimum tensile strength of 190 KSI, and each shaft is individually tested for straightness to within 0.015” (0.38mm). The bar is finished with Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc Sleeves.

  • Lifetime Warranty Against Bending*

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Rogue has a replacement rate of less than 0.0002 on bars. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

Rogue 28MM Training Bar - Black Zinc is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Like it Bar is similar to Ohio bar but different. It definitely has a better whip, this matters if you do a power clean and the bar lands on your shoulders in "rack" position, its a bit more comfortable. Knurling feels good, if your hands get sweaty then the Zinc will feel very slippery - add chalk. The knurling + chalk has a similar feel to my SS Ohio bar with no chalk. There is a difference in feel between 28mm and 28.5mm bar when doing hook grips, your thumbs will notice a difference. This bar uses bronze bushings, so dropping it is a bit loud, spin is better than my SS Ohio bar with composite bushings. Great bar, wish it wasn't as loud on drops, if you wear headphones, no big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great All-Around Bar As the gyms were closed, I bought this bar about 3 months ago as an all-around, do everything bar to begin building my home gym, and I've been really satisfied overall. The bar itself is really nice. The knurling is quite grippy, but not overly aggressive, and the 28mm diameter is perfect for me as someone who's 5'7" (170cm). After 3 months of constant use, the black zinc finish on the shaft still looks and feels great. Some minor gripes: The bushings were a bit stiff and didn't spin very much when I first received the bar, but after a short break-in period they seemed to improve a lot and they spin pretty well now. After 3 months, the sleeves have some very minor discolouration. I imagine it's either oxidation or humidity from being in my garage, but it seems like it's just an aesthetic difference. Overall if you're looking for an all-around barbell, this is a solid option, especially if you're someone with smaller hands, or are specifically looking for a 28mm bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 28mm bar! Top-notch overall quality! I’ve been using the “community” bars at my CrossFit gym for the last 5 years. I decided it was time to invest in personal equipment. With advice from my gym’s owner/coach I bought this bar. So happy! So sexy! Zero regrets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar! An excellent bar! Very good spin, especially for a bushing bar. Knurling is just right for competition-oriented training: not too sharp, but with plenty of grip so there's no problem holding onto it, even when the weight gets heavy. The 28 mm diameter is nice too: makes it easy to maintain a hook grip throughout the first and second phases of an Oly lift. Very pleased with this bar!
