When whiskey is made, the distilled grain spirits are placed into a charred oak barrels where they are aged for years to add character and distinction. The whiskey is then removed and diluted until it reaches a lower proof to increase production volume and make it easier on the palate. However, some select whiskies, are taken from the barrel and put directly into bottles. These bottles contain the pure, undiluted, unadulterated strength and character imparted by the barrel.

At Barrel Strength Systems, we take this approach to crafting strength equipment. Our innovations come directly to you with no compromises and no dilution of our vision to help make you stronger.

Our Key Philosophies:

Value - Getting strong isn't cheap and  good training aids are hard to come by. We get this, and in the interest of lowering the barrier of entry to strength sports, we have distilled our designs down to exactly what you need. We want your feedback and your experiences too, so drop by our contact us page and send us a message.
Innovation  - There is so much uncharted territory in strength and fitness, and we seek to design equipment that makes your training more effective and more convenient. We are strength people and most of our ideas start with, "Wouldn't it be really cool if we had..."
Quality - Our products are tested to ensure they can handle even the strongest of our customers. Care, thoughtfulness, and precision go into making each and every one of our designs. We design our products to become heirlooms.

These three values are the most important things to us at Barrel Strength Systems and what we strive every day to deliver to you. Let us put in the work so you can achieve what you’ve been looking for all along: Pure Unadulterated Strength.
