VERVE is Australia's most trusted supplier of Olympic Barbells with a great range of olympic barbells to suit your lifting level and needs.
Olympic Barbells are designed and built for heavier weight lifting. Therefore, they are longer, wider and can hold a lot more weight.
Olympic barbells also have rotating bearings/bushings and sleeves, to reduce the amount of torque, relieving the joints. They also 'whip', meaning they slightly flex under heavy lifting.
An Olympic Barbell is 7 feet long and weighs 45 lbs (just over 20 kgs). Standard Barbells are shorter, 5-6 feet long and weighs around 15-25 lbs. Olympic Barbells can hold more weight, up to 1500 lbs (680 kg), while Standard Barbells can hold up to 200 lbs (90 kgs).
There are some many exercises you can do with an Olympic Barbell, but we have listed the top 6 exercises to leverage the use of an Olympic Barbell: Squats, Power Cleans, Deadlifts, Snatches, Shoulder Presses and Sumo Deadlifts.
As they can withstand much heavier weights, Olympic Barbell lifting can lead to more strength, speed and power. They rotating bearings/bushings make them also safer as they protect the joints.
