EZ-Curl Olympic Bar - 54" Hard Chrome | Iron Grip (OB-EZ)- The USA Made OB-EZ Curl Bar by Iron Grip is made from heat-treated, turned, ground and polished steel for exceptional strength, performance and longevity. The OB-EZ cambered design works to alleviate unnecessary pressure and torque on the wrists while utilizing pronated and supinated grips during bicep and tricep training. The Iron Grip OB-EZ Olympic curl bar is an oversized 54" long curl bar designed to be compatible with storage racks and utility benches that are common in most commercial gyms. 

The satin industrial chrome finish of the Iron Grip OB-EZ curl bar is both beautiful to look at and tough as nails for providing maximum protection to the underlying steel. Unlike "decorative" chrome, industrial chrome finishes will never peel, flake or chip which makes for a longer lasting, more aesthetically pleasing bar. A 28.6mm bar shaft with medium knurling is comfortable and secure for both men and women during all EZ-curl bar exercises. And the fully machined steel sleeves rotate effortlessly thanks to the maintenance-free Nylatron bushings.

What are the advantages of using an Iron Grip EZ-Curl Bar? How much does an EZ-Curl bar weigh? The answer to that, at least in this case, is 32 lbs. which happens to be just one of the benefits of using an EZ-Curl bar compared to a full sized 7' long Olympic bar. EZ-curl bars are typically used for isolation resistance training that involves smaller muscle groups such as the arms. Biceps and triceps inherently use far less weight than most the other muscles in the body, such as the chest and back. Therefore, utilizing a weightlifting bar with a lower starting weight can be beneficial, and safer, for both men and women. How is the weight of an EZ-curl bar reduced down to only 32 lbs. which is 13 lbs. lighter than a 7' Olympic bar? This is done by shortening both the bar shaft and weight sleeves to cut the total length down to only 54". This shorter length and lighter weight makes the EZ-curl bar much easier to manage and balance especially for the beginner.

Perhaps one of the biggest training advantages the shorter EZ-curl bar offers over the longer Olympic bar is its unique shape. This cambered bar gives the appearance of a "W" which creates multiple grip angles you can take advantage of to better isolate different heads of the biceps and triceps muscles. Taking a narrow underhanded, or "supinated" grip, on the EZ-curl bar puts the hands in a semi-neutral position which helps alleviate the torquing on the wrists as you perform a bicep curl. Using the narrow supinated grip on the EZ-curl bar while keeping the elbows out during a standing curl or preacher curl is a great way to isolate the outer head of the biceps. Similarly, widening the grip and bringing the elbows in will isolate the inner bicep head. For building thick and powerful forearms, train with the EZ-curl bar using a reversed, or "pronated", grip. Altering the width and angle of the grip is also beneficial when training the triceps and is much easier on the wrists compared to a straight bar when performing close grip tricep presses.
