They consist of a long bar, usually made of metal, with two weights at the ends. The bar has an anti-slip texture that ensures a firm and secure grip. Olympic barbells can be used for a considerable number of exercises. They are able to withstand heavy loads and are suitable for both professional athletes and beginners. Regular use of Olympic barbells can enhance muscle strength, improve posture and increase endurance.
These barbells are compatible with Olympic weights, which are larger and heavier discs than standard 25mm diameter discs. These weights are available in different sizes, from 0.5 to 25kg or more, and are usually made of cast iron or rubber with a central hole of 50mm to be inserted at the ends of Olympic barbells. Thanks to this compatibility, Olympic barbells can be used with a wide range of weights and discs, allowing athletes to gradually increase their workload and improve their muscles over time.
Olympic barbells are available in different lengths and weights to meet the needs of athletes and perform specific exercises. For example, a longer barbell is ideal for squats and bench presses, while a shorter model is more suitable for deadlifts. In addition, there are Olympic barbells with straight or curved bars, depending on the athlete's preferences and goals.
