Barbells are essential to any home gym or box. We have an assortment of barbells to fit your level of training. Most of our bars come in a 20kg for men and 15kg for women. Women's hands tend to be smaller than a mans, so the "women's" bar features a 25mm shaft diameter vs. the "men's" 20kg and 28-32mm shaft.

While shopping for your new bar there are a few things you’ll want to consider when purchasing your barbell.
Olympic Weightlifting Barbell: An Olympic weightlifter needs an Olympic Barbell. Period. When it comes down to deciding the right type of Oly bar however there are a couple things to think about. Knurling is one of the first things to look at before you make your purchase. Most olympic barbells have a fairly aggressive knurling for improved grip, however some more than others and depending on the amount of training you plan on doing, you want to choose a bar that won’t tear up your hands but will provide a solid grip for you to hang on to.
You also want to look at rotation of the barbell collars as well as the amount of “whip” the bar has the ability to create. More rotation adds for smoother transitions after the second pull of the clean or snatch and more whip provides easier and more transfer of energy into the bar when standing up from a clean or dipping into a jerk.
We tested the highest of the high as well as econ low end barbells in our search to design the best olympic training bar and with the help of 2x Olympian Chad Vaughn, we think we’ve hit the mark.
CrossFit Weightlifting Barbell: Much like an Olympic weightlifting bar, knurling and whip are important factors to take into account when looking for a good CrossFit style training bar. However just as importantly is the durability of the barbell itself as well as the price range.
You’ll want to find a bar that has good tensile strength, is rust resistant, and is made in a fashion that can repeatedly withstand the volume of drops it will have to take during metcons like Grace or Isabel.
There are several bars that vary slightly but are all excellent training bars that can be found here.
Most Olympic weightlifting barbells weigh 20kg (44lb), which is considered standard or a "mens" bar. Women typically use a 15kg (33lb) barbell. The most significant difference between the men and women's bars is the shaft diameter. The mens bars are 28-32mm diameter, whereas womens bars are standard at 25mm diameter. Why is this? Women typically have smaller hands than men. When women do a snatch, clean, thruster or overhead movement she will want to have proper grip on the bar, a thinner bar is going to help because of her smaller hands.
The two main differences you are going to see with a men and women's Olympic barbells is going to be the weight and the shaft diameter. Some other minor differences you may see are length of the bar, knurl, plate loading length, and the weight capacity.
Our 20kg Wonder Bar comes in a bronze bushing and needle bearing cartridges. Both bars are excellent for lifting and provide spin.
