Our weightlifting bars come in Standard and Olympic styles. Standard style is 1" in diameter and fits most standard size weights. Standard is typically fine for home use, but doesn't have the strength or durability of Olympic bars for heavy lifting. Olympic style bars are just under 2 inches in diameter and meet a set of requirements so that they fit all olympic style plates. They meet the standards set forth by the International Weightlifting Federation. Olympic bars are stronger and can handle high weights without bending.
Our olympic style bars are high quality and are commercial grade, made to endure rigorous use without sagging or bending. They are ideal for school and university gyms, weight rooms, commercial fitness and recreational centers and military installations!
