Best Barbells: How to Buy the Best Barbells on the Market
We will guide you and give you tips and information on how to get the highest quality + lowest price barbells for your gym or home training facility. Having lifted for many years myself I see a clear tendency of people constantly looking for the next “big thing”.

Best Olympic Barbells
My wrestling coach always used to tell me that no matter what I did, I should always make sure to stick to basics. The basics are the foundation for acquiring a new skill set and achieving results in any endeavor and when it comes to weightlifting and strength building the Olympic barbell is as basic and old school as it gets.
The Olympic barbell is also the single most ever used piece of equipment in almost all the greatest mass and strength building exercises. Deadlift, squat, bench press, bicep curls, bent over rows and military press are the most popular ones just to mention a few.
Olympic Barbell Dimensions and Features
The men’s barbell is special in the way that the sleeves actually rotate. By having this rotation it makes it a lot easier for the lifter to get in and under the barbell without damaging himself and the barbell falling on his head. The grip area usually has a special criss-cross pattern that gives you a better grip and makes it harder for the barbell to slip while performing various exercises.
Buying an Olympic Bar
There are a couple of things you should consider when starting your search for your own barbells. First of all you want to be very clear about what kind of quantities you are looking to purchase, are you looking for just a single bar and a couple of weights or do you want a whole set including benches and racks?
This will make a huge difference as you will make the purchase from different retailers according to what quantities you are going for, this will ensure you that you save the largest amount of money. The next step is to decide how much you are willing to spend and what your overall budget is.
After you have decided all of the above mentioned things, it is time to start your search and find the highest quality Olympic barbell set. If you can’t find a high quality used set or simply want to buy a completely new set it is very important to see what kind of warranty policy and customer support the retailer you choose offers.
Pure, muscular strength is vitally important for a great life and great health. Healthy, strong people are a dying breed. The world is filling up with weak people. Muscle mass is important for being a useful person, looking great and maintaining a healthy metabolism. At Best Barbells, we don’t sit around admiring ourselves in mirrors, trying to score dates at the water cooler or doing endless repetitions on a machine of strange movements we read about in a magazine.
We load weight onto barbells and we lift. We squat, deadlift, press, bench, and power clean. We push and we pull. We grip and we carry. We use correct technique and smart programming. We keep it simple, we work hard, we enjoy doing it. Everyone here has one very specific goal: get strong and do it safely.
