Frequently Asked Questions
There are different types of barbells as gym equipment, based on the establishment’s target customers. A standard gym can have regular men and women’s barbells with a wide variety of weight plates to complement the bars. Other specialty gyms that train and coach professional weightlifters have Olympic barbells. But how exactly do these types of barbells differ?Olympic Barbell
A standard Olympic barbell measures 7 feet long and weighs at least 20 kgs. The bar typically varies when it comes to its capacity to carry additional weight from the round plates. For instance, a brand that manufactures Olympic barbells should make sure that their product can hold the maximum weight that their plates have when used all together. An Olympic barbell should have the capacity of carrying between 270 to 680 kgs. (600 to 1500 lbs).Standard Barbell
This type is shorter than an Olympic type with a length of 5 to 6 feet and a weight of 6 to 11 kgs (15 to 25 lbs). Because it is lighter and shorter, it can also carry lighter weight plates, ranging from 100 to 200 lbs only (45 to 90 kgs.) This is the type of barbell that gym enthusiasts choose to purchase when building their own home gym. This is not used for any competition and is only intended for fitness and weight training.
