Mesa Technique Bar
Raising the bar. These barbells were over 10 years in the making – the fusion of customer insights, rigorous testing, thousands of reps by different types of athletes, and our decades of experience in both lifting and designing quality, innovative gym equipment. That’s how we know these will be the best barbells you’ll ever put your hands on.
REP’s lightweight Mesa Technique Bar is ideal to help you learn the proper techniques of Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting. As a training bar that’s built for beginners, the Mesa weighs just 15lbs. It features light, hill-style knurling to provide enough grip support for lighter loads, but it won’t tear up your hands when you do high-rep training. Dual knurl markings (International Weightlifting Federation and International Powerlifting Federation) help you determine even hand placement on the barbell, no matter the lifts you’re practicing.
The lack of center knurling also allows for comfort during high-volume training. This bar is 72” long in total, so it still fits on standard-width squat and power racks. The Mesa Technique Bar has a brass bushing sleeve design; this produces plenty of rotation, but it spins slower, making it great for perfecting your technique. Although it’s a beginner bar, the Mesa remains high quality, with a bare aluminum shaft and steel sleeves coated with Duracoat, which provides a high level of corrosion and wear resistance. This bar is compatible with regular plates with 2” diameter holes, and the sleeves are ribbed to help keep plates stable and secure during explosive lifts. The Mesa has a standard, 28mm diameter, but a 50lbs external load max. It’s intended only for technique training using light loads. Pair this bar with REP’s special Technique Plates (available in both kg and lbs) to be well on your way to mastering your lifts.
