Olympic Bars, Olympic Barbells and Weightlifting Bars For Barbell Training - Olympic bars and barbells are considered to be the “gold standard” of building muscle and dramatically increasing strength throughout the entire human body. Nowadays, the typesof weight lifting bars customers can choose from is vast. An EZ-curl bar with its “W” shape helps alleviate torque on the wrists when training the biceps while the neutral grip of an Olympic tricep bar will isolate the heads of the triceps while performing tricep extensions and close grip presses. Short Olympic bars are great for arm training and work well in smaller workout areas. We even have 6’ Olympic bars that are compatible with squat racks and Olympic bench presses if you don’t have the room for a full size 7’ Olympic bar. Olympic training bars, or “technique” bars, are machined from solid aluminum so as to greatly lighten the actual weight of the bar and allow a lighter pulling and pressing weight when practicing proper Olympic weightlifting techniques. Heavy-duty Olympic bars are constructed from high tensile strength steel and include different knurling patterns, various degrees of bar whip, bushing and bearing types and even plating options depending on your weightlifting goals and budget.
