Olympic barbells. Tough, flexible, and designed for lifting 

Olympic barbells are crafted to make lifting, squatting, pressing, and curling a safer, more comfortable experience.

New to strength training? Buying an Olympic bar at the start of your journey gives you more freedom as you progress. Compared to standard bars, Olympic barbells are longer and more flexible. As your strength increases and you can lift more, you have the space for more plates and a bar that can cope with the extra strain. Find a high-quality barbell you love from our range and it’ll become a central part of your gym equipment, traveling with you from lightweight through to your ultimate, PB weightlifting goal.

Our Olympic barbells come in a range of weights and lengths. This gives you greater choice to choose a bar that suits your weightlifting needs. For example, Olympic hammer bars are ideal for biceps and triceps workouts, while longer, 7ft Olympic barbells are your go-to when working towards the perfect deadlift. You’ll also notice all of our Olympic barbells have smooth, loadable sleeves to aid plate rotation during the lift, and centre knurling for a solid grip on selected bars.

If you’re looking for more than just an Olympic barbell, we also have barbell and weights packages so you can buy everything you need together and won’t need to consistently be buying new weights.
