5' International Olympic Weight Lifting Bar -- York (32123)
York Barbell 5 International Olympic Weight Lifting Bar | Black Oxide - The 32123 5 Black Oxide Olympic Bar by York Barbell is a useful multi-purpose bar that can be used in garage gyms, school weight rooms and commercial gyms. With a weight of only 42 lbs. it provides a lighter starting weight that is especially beneficial when training smaller muscles groups such as the arms. An aggressive knurling pattern helps lifters keep a firm grip on the bar even when hands are sweaty yet remains comfortable during the entire set. And weight sleeves are plated with a hard chrome finish which is resistant to peeling and chipping and will not fail even after years of weight plate changes. Sleeves are machined to a precise 1.975” diameter to accommodate 2” Olympic Plates.
What are the advantages of purchasing a 5 Olympic bar? For a beginner, a 5 Olympic bar can be a bit more manageable compared to a 7 bar. A 5 bar on average weighs about 13 lbs. less than a 7 bar allowing a lighter starting weight for exercises. A 5 bar is easier to balance than a 7 bar too, which some folks struggle with at first. If using in a home gym or other confined area, sometimes a 7 bar is just too long. A 5 long Olympic bar is not compatible with squat cages or Olympic weight benches but can be used on a preacher curl bench, utility bench or as a stand alone bar for arm curls, light deadlifts and many other exercises. Another benefit is cost. Most 5 bars are more affordable than a 7 bar due to the reduced amount of materials and labor used to produce these bars.
