Olympic barbells are the most durable style of free weight training equipment. They typically are thicker and stronger than other barbells and can cope with much heavier weight loads. For this reason, they are usually better suited to more experienced and competitive lifters. They have a thicker shaft diameter with a 50mm rotating sleeve on the ends. Due to their larger and heavier nature, Olympic bars are more expensive than standard bars.

Bars and Barbells
The bar (or barbell) is synonymous with weightlifting. It is one of the most important pieces of functional weight training equipment. A barbell is effectively a long iron bar to which weight plates can be added on each end to vary the load. It is designed for use with two hands. Both beginners and experienced lifters benefit from the use of barbells and they usually form the basis of most of the compound free-weight training exercises (such as bench press, squat and deadlift).
Our Olympic bars come in a variety of lengths, styles and weight ratings – including straight barbells in 5ft, 6ft and 7ft lengths, EZ (or zigzag) curl bars, tricep (or hammer curl) bars, trap (hex) bars, dumbbells, fat bars, safety squat bars and more. All bars are supplied with collars.
