Regular Weight Lifting Bars

What is a Regular Weight Lifting Bar? A regular bar is usually defined as a bar that features 1” diameter sleeves that accepts regular weightlifting plates with a 1” diameter center hole. Most commonly these are used in home or garage gyms and are designed to hold much less weight than their Olympic sized counterparts. Not so long ago regular barbell bars consisted only of straight 5’, 6’ and maybe 7’ long bars having either a smooth sleeve or threaded for spin lock collars. Today the selection has greatly increased allowing the user to better isolate specific muscles in the arms and upper body. One of our favorites is a triceps bar that allows you to perform tricep extensions and hammer curls. Two staple arm exercises that are known for adding serious mass to the arms. If your home gym features an adjustable bench press, depending on the model, the widths of the uprights can vary greatly. For benches with narrow uprights you will want a shorter bar, such as a 5’ weight bar, so that you lessen the chances of the bar tipping when loading and removing your weight plates. For a bench press with wider uprights, you’ll need a longer bar to allow ample room to grip the bar when setting up to bench. To alleviate the wrists when performing bicep curls, check out one of our Spin Lock curl bars. The Hampton bars feature urethane grips which helps eliminate callouses and makes for a more comfortable grip overall.

When selecting a bar please remember that Regular Bars are not compatible with 2" Olympic plates.
