Female power lifters train and lift on "man" bars. So why do female Olympic lifters and WODers need a different bar- one that weighs 5kg less?
It's simple- it's all about the grip, and the transition of the bar from the ground to overhead. Women's hands tend to be smaller than a mans, and a "women's" bar weighs 15kg (33 lbs) and features a 25mm shaft diameter vs. the "normal" 20kg and 28-32mm shaft.
The thinner shaft allows for a better grip and better form in transition and in overhead positions.
Can men use a 15kg bar? Sure, but most don't- 20kg bars are considered the the standard in the WOD, Oly, powerlifting, and bodybuilding communities. But hey, weight is weight, and mean ol' Mr. Gravity doesn't care. And- we did recently hear about some guys doing zercher squats, zercher carries, and zercher good mornings with a 15kg bar- since the smaller shaft makes the exercise more uncomfortable.
Our 15kg Wonder Bar comes in a bronze bushing and needle bearing cartridges. Both bars are excellent for lifting and provide spin.
