About our Barbells
We hope we can help you find the perfect bar for your bench pressing, squatting, deadlifting or rowing. You’ve already made a brilliant move to progressing your body further just by researching, for that we commend you. After all, barbells are the masters of recruiting several muscles into one athletic movement, allowing you to wield weight you didn’t think possible.
We believe a healthy balance of barbell and dumbbell training strikes a symbiotic relationship, heavy movements and highly focused training equal incredible long-term performance. For pure power training clean and jerks and snatches deliver, bench pressing and squats stimulate muscle growth, while deadlifts and rows improve your athletic performance.
We’re only scratching the surface of the potential you can reach through these classic pieces of gym equipment. Barbells are designed to fit one of two weight plate sizes, standard 1 inch of Olympic 2 inch. Standard size bars lend themselves well to any new starters out there or intermediates, conversely Olympic size suits advanced, regular lifters and their more demanding requirements as they come with more generous load capacities.
It’s equally as important to choose the right length, 4ft, 5ft, 6ft and 7ft lengths are designed for use with specific width lifting racks. If you have a rack, it’s crucial you choose a length that will fit flush with the rack width for safe training.
We’re determined to help you lead an active lifestyle in a way that’s convenient and sustainable for you. If you feel you need more guidance we have plenty of in-depth buying guides, or we’d be thrilled to hear from you. Chat with us on-site, at email@example.com or on 0345 1666 200.
