Weightlifting: take a barbell from the ground and bring it over your head. Simple, isn't it? In principle, Cross Training, Weightlifting and generally weight lifting are sports activities within everyone's reach. But learning the right techniques and movements is far from easy. It is not so for younger people, who begin to get closer to barbells during adolescence, and even less so for those who approach Weightlifting in adulthood. Those who have never hung out in the gym may think that brute force is the fundamental component of weight lifting, but it is not at all like this: when you are in front of a barbell loaded with discs, it is technique, concentration, the connection between muscles and nervous system to really count. To improve over time, to avoid injuries and to have fun, it is in fact necessary to learn lifting techniques, learn to notice every single movement necessary, develop perfect coordination. Only afterwards we continue with the actual strengthening of the physical. But what do you start with? With normal 20 kg Olympic barbells, loaded with elite lifters? No, sir: to learn the right movements it is necessary to practice with lighter barbells, for beginners, and this is why we at Lacertosus® have created the range of Technique Barbells, specially designed for those who take their first steps in Cross Training and Weightlifting.
So what can you find in this section dedicated to apprentice barbells? First, of course, we start from the technical bar, the first tool that every budding lifter should confront. Usually for these exercises we rely on shabby PVC pipes, ugly to look at, uncomfortable to use and far from resistant. So we thought to create beautiful, resistant, practical and functional technical bars, with the reference rings at 91 cm, and therefore according to IWF, to start in the right way. Looking at the youngest, or rather, the very young, we have also created the Junior Bar, an extremely light barbell that can also be used by the little ones to experience the moves of Weightlifting. Always here you can find other barbells to improve your technique: in fact, often too heavy or with insufficient quality characteristics are used for this purpose. We, on the other hand, offer you light, elastic barbells, built with the best materials, with respectable flow rates and with a handle according to IWF standards. Why risk compromising the basics of weight lifting with mediocre technical barbells?
