The W8PL8 Olympic SUPER EZ Curl Bar with brass bushes is designed to reduce stress on the forearm and provide a more comfortable grip while focusing on different bicep and tricep areas. It can also be used to target other body areas. Slightly different from the standard EZ curl bar, it allows you to movements like complete hammer curls and skull crushers that are not possible with a regular EZ curl bar.
Compatible with any Olympic plates, it features solid, heavily chromed steel and heavy duty with rotating shafts on brass bushes and comes securely packaged in a poly bag, within sturdy cardboard tube. All of our olympic bars are supplied with spring collars at no extra charge.
This Olympic EZ curl bar is:
Olympic size with a 50mm rotating weight shaft at each end
Length to hold weights – 170mm each end
Solid construction design to carry up to 500lb
Weight of 8kg (without collars)
1200mm total length.
Supplied with spring collars
The main difference between the EZ and the straight bar for curls is that with the EZ bar your hands are slightly pronated (thumbs are higher than pinkies), changing the pattern of activation of the upper arm muscles. Essentially, what this means is that your biceps are getting a little less work and your brachialis muscle (which lies under the lower portion of the biceps) is getting slightly more work because of the angle of your hands. Try it with bicep curls (standing, seated or with a preacher pad) or lying tricep extensions.
