The philosophy behind Bent Bar was simple. One team of individuals sharing the same passion, powerlifting. Whether we are at the gym, on the platform, or just hanging out, we all support each other. 

Sharing in that same passion allows us to help each one of us grow as a competitor and a teammate. Supporting those on the platform is the best form of team support we can provide.

One team one vision.
