Used for CrossFit
August 13, 2019
My wife and I bought a garage gym for Christmas ‘18 on the Black Friday sales after Thanksgiving. After researching for at least 3 years, I knew the money was going into bars& plated. I also knew those plates were going to be Vulcan Alphas. It made sense to buy Vulcan bars to go with the Vulcan plates. Everything we read put them at least on par with Rogue-I’ve been using Rogue plates since high school and they are the standard for CF Boxes around the country. Anything of lesser quality would not work for me.
Let me tell you right now that money spent on this bar is 100% worth it.
The KEY to a garage gym is wanting to use your own stuff. I WANT to use my Alphas. I WANT to use my bar. If it wouldn’t be seen as pretentious, I’d take my bar to the box with me (where they use Rogue) just because I like it so much. The knurling is perfect, the spin is sublime. Snatched and cleans seem to float up.
The only problem with this bar is that the first time you’ll use it is after you’ve bought it. Not much opportunity to test drive.
