Standard Weight Lifting Bar Vs Olympic Bar
In general, there are two main types of bars: standard and Olympic. Which one is most appropriate will vary depending on your budget and requirements. Standard bars are typically found in a lot of home gyms, and they suitable for most uses and cost less. However, they are also likely to bend permanently with use.
For the most dedicated users, the Olympic bars are far more suitable. They can support much higher weights without permanently bending and are generally built to a much higher quality.

It is also worth considering the bar strength, sleeve, whip and finish when looking for a bar for home or commercial use.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a bar with neutral grip or for some variation in your routine, why not check out the Swiss bar. It is ideal for training if you’ve hit a plateau in the gym or if you suffer from any shoulder injuries.
