Why Lift with a Wonder Bar Women's Olympic 15kg Barbell

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 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.

  • Killer all-black zinc finish throughout the bar.
  • True 25mm shaft diameter
  • Great knurl depth- neither a cheese grater nor too soft
  • Awesome knurl pattern- double ring IWF + IPF with no center knurl
  • Available in a bushing  rotation or bearing collar.

We lift on the Wonder Bar everyday at FringeSport HQ - and it's backed by a lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

Bushing vs Bearing

Our 15kg Wonder Bar comes in a bronze bushing and needle bearing cartridges. Both bars are excellent for lifting and provide spin.

  • Needle bearing cartridges in the collars provide a little more spin than a bushing barbell.
  • Bearing barbells have a slightly smoother rotation and cost a little more than a bushing.
  • Bushing barbells are typically used for heavy or slower lifts, such as power lifting movements.
  • Bearing barbells are typically used for faster lifts, such as Olympic lifts.
