5' Short International Olympic Bar -- Hampton (IB-60CE)

60" Long - 28mm Grip Diameter
39" Wide Gripping Area
Uses: Commercial Gyms

Hampton Fitness IB-60CE 5' Short International Olympic Bar - The IB-60CE 5' Short Weightlifting Bar by Hampton Fitness features the same high quality features as the full size 7' Hampton Olympic bars but with a shorter bar shaft and weight sleeves. The IB-60CE has a gripping area from collar to collar that measures 39" and a loadable sleeve length of 10.5". Since your average Olympic bench press and squat rack is approximately 48" wide, the IB-60CE is not compatible with these larger strength machines but can be used with smaller items including preacher curl benches and utility benches. The shorter length of this mini power bar combined with a weight of only 25 lbs., which is a full 20 lbs. lighter than a 7' Olympic bar, makes it more user friendly for beginners or for anyone training smaller muscle groups such as the arms.

The 28mm bar shaft of the IB-60CE and medium knurling pattern is user friendly from women with smaller hands to men with larger hands. The electroplated hard chrome finish will never flake or peel so the surface of the gripping area remains consistent and aesthetically appealing year after year. Each hard chromed weight plate sleeve turns on smooth brass bushings for optimal performance and reduced torque on the wrists while lifting. And rubber bar end caps help reduce wear and tear on gym floors and weight plate finishes.
