In this category, you will find all the Olympic Barbells for Men produced by Lacertosus®. Each single one of them meets the IWF and IPF standards.
What is though, an Olympic Barbell, and how does it distinguish itself from the others? Very briefly, when you hear talking about olympic barbells at the gym, it is spoken about all the weight lifting bars whose loading cylinders - the sleeves on which the plates or bumpers are loaded, have a 50mm thickness, turning out to be perfectly compatible with 51mm diameter hole olympic weights. More specifically, the Male Olympic Barbell weighs 20kg and it has a 220cm length with a 28-29mm diameter at the level of the handle. These are the Men's Olympic Barbell sizes, different from the sizes of the Females' Olympic Barbells, in this case, the bar is slightly shorter and lighter. Though, this does not mean all Men Olympic Barbells are exactly the same! Absolutely not: for each discipline and necessity there are different aspects to take into consideration. The classic olympic barbell, for instance, doesn't have a central knurling, therefore no rough surface at the center of the bar, this is to avoid body scratching during the lifting. A Powerlifting barbell, on the other hand will be provided with a central knurling, in order to have maximum control during the execution of the hardest squats. The knurling degrees vary according to the discipline: whoever will need to work on typical Cross Training and WeightLifting repetitions, will be looking for a medium knurling barbell.
