To make things a little easier we've re-grouped all our specialist bars including Poliquin bars and fat bars into their own category. Hopefully this will make finding the more common Olympic bars much easier to find as they are now not grouped with these more specialist Olympic Bar Designs. Most of these bars are specially designed and manufactured for us here in England by our industry proven and highly skilled design and fabrication team.

Why use Olympic Bars for weight training? We are often asked the difference between Olympic and Standard weights and bars, simple explanation is the Olympic bars have 2" ends mounted on roller bearings which enables the bar to rotate easilly through 180 degrees even when fully loaded for Oympic style lifts where the bar goes from floor to chest or above head. Having 2" ends also mean the main bar is not restricted to the 25mm (1") diameter of standard weights, so higher loading capacities are possible through thicker bars. A 1500lb rated bar is around 32mm thick in our cheaper range of bars.

If you have Olympic weights then you absolutely need Olympic collars of some description. Whether spring collars, L-type collars, specialist collars such as Bulldog Collars or any other type of Olympic collar. If you use Olympic Dumbell Handles then we would strongly advise against the use of spring collars in favour of something more secure like Olympic L-Type Collars or the awesome Bulldog Collars from York Barbell (pictured). Either way we have olympic collars for every requirement whether home or commercial use. Next day delivery with no minimum order value.
