LHOAIE X Gorila Bar
LHOAIE X Gorila Bar
STRONG BARBELL FOR STRONG PEOPLE.
This Bar is the achievement of close to a year of design in collaboration with Crossfit Games Athlete Elijah Muhammad, he's in his 8th year in the Sport of Fitness and his profile is more like one of a superhero! LHOAIE stands for Lift Heavy Often As In Everyday, representing Elijah's life moto. A couple months ago, EZ asked us to design a bar that could endure the abuse of daily heavy lifts and would have the spin and whip similar to the highest ranked Olympic Barbells on the Market. So we started with the base of a Gorila Training Bar 2.0 and it was back to the drawing board.
We've doubled the number of bearings to 8 total high quality bearings (4 per sleeve) and upped the PSI tensile Strength by 25k to 215,000 PSI for a stiffer bar. Because of that, we would tend to suggest this bar as an upgrade to your current barbell to any intermediate or elite level athletes as you will need to lift heavier to truly feel the difference. That said, Elijah also wanted a more agressive knurling for a solid grip in the Clean and Snatch.
We won't lie to you, this bar is made by one of our trusted supplier in China. We know Chinese products tend to have a bad reputation but when it comes to Weightlifting Bar machinery and processes, nobody's half as qualified and equipped as our supplier.
This barbell comes with a 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 Gorila product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.
