The 10" Vintage Barbell reflects the nearly forgotten philosophy of authentic strength. One hundred years ago strongmen were able to lift twice their body weight over their head with one hand. Now we don't have strongmen anymore. We have bodybuilders that lack flexibility, mobility, and use artificial products for aesthetic reasons. These men from 100 years ago were not different from weight lifters today except in their understanding of physical culture. They knew strength was not a product of muscle isolation or miracle pills. They understood the role grip plays in core activation and full body strength. The ASF Vintage Barbell is the result of his effort and study. The thick grip is critical for core engagement and increasing muscle density. Vintage Barbells increase hand and wrist strength, reduce incidence of tendonitis or inflammation, and recruit the core with every lift. The thick grip handle engages muscle systems that extend from your hands through your core and all the way to your feet. As you lift, every muscle is working in tandem to increase muscle density and teach your body to move in a more efficient and powerful way. Once you feel what it's like to train with an ASF Vintage Barbell you'll wonder how you trained without them. And our weights are not made in China or assembled in India. They are made 100% in the U.S.A. with American steel. The black powder coat adds phenomenal durability and style. The thick band steel adds tremendous strength to the globes. You buy an ASF Vintage weight once and you own it for life. Just like the strength you will achieve through training with it. Shot is loadable so you can progressively raise or lower weight as needed.
