Before I start this Chan Bar review, let me start off by saying that I am extremely excited about this particular review.

Rogue Fitness has one of the most extensive collections of branded barbells around. It can be daunting trying to figure out which bar is right for you. You can stare at product pages, compare numbers, and read reviews for hours; but about the time that you think you’ve got a handle on all these bars, Rogue adds a couple more to the line-up, takes a few out of the line-up, and then slaps a new version number on everything else.
