Compare the leading Olympic barbells for performance, style, and price.
There are several considerations when deciding which Olympic barbell to purchase. You want a durable barbell that will hold up for years to come. Chrome is less expensive, but Cerakote provides long-lasting protection and offers excellent looks with many colors to choose. For the functional fitness and/or cross-training athlete performing Olympic movements, you want a bar that promotes fast and free spin. For this, you will want a bearing bar versus the less expensive option of using bushings. Finally, it's your barbell and will be the centerpiece of your workouts for years to come. Choose a barbell that represents who you are and sparks joy every time you pick it up.
