5' Short Olympic Weightlifting Bar – Body-Solid (OB60B)
Benefit: Light & Compact
Uses: Residential and Commercial
OB60B 5' Short Olympic Weightlifting Bar – The OB60B by Body Solid is a short 5' long Olympic weightlifting bar with a black oxide finish and rotating weight sleeves that can be used in residential or commercial gyms. There is a medium diamond knurling pattern and smooth rotating sleeves to prevent torquing of the wrists as you lift. And a 600 lb. weight capacity allows users to pile on the weight plates without fear of bending.
A short Olympic bar can have many advantages over a 7' Olympic bar. For starters, the overall weight of a 5' Olympic bar is usually about 15 lbs. lighter than that of a 7' bar. This is beneficial to those who prefer to begin with a lighter weight for select barbell exercises such as bicep curls. A shorter Olympic bar is also easier to balance than that of a 6' or 7' foot bar. While a compact Olympic bar like the OB60B is too short to utilize on a squat rack or Olympic bench press, it can be used for all sorts of other things such as standing curls, skull crushers, lat rows or just about any other barbell exercise that doesn't require a longer bar. Even though the shaft is shorter, the weight sleeves still offer plenty of room to pack on lots of weight plates.
