There are those who have just entered the world of Weightlifting and are still experiencing with weight training bars. For everyone else, an empty barbell makes no sense. This is why you need locks to secure the plates you load onto the barbell: in this category you can therefore find high-quality barbell collars and locks! With the plates' locks, among other things, there is nothing to joke about: barbell collars are in fact the only way to avoid accidents when lifting weights. The whole process of loading the weights on the barbells, in fact should be done by paying a lot of attention to what its being done. Always load both sides simultaneously – if you want to do squats with a 100kg weight load, it will always be better to first load a 20kg plates on each side and repeat the operation, thus avoiding to place 40kg on one side only: the risk is that of a dangerous overturning of the balance. But let's get to the importance of barbell collars. Imagine yourself on the bench with the intention to lift your fully loaded barbell. Your arms are unlikely to have exactly the same strength, therefore most probably there will be some unbalance between one lift and the other: if one of the two ends of the bar is higher, the plates will risk to move. Without an adequate barbell lock, this movement can automatically translate into injury and damage to the gym equipment. That is why you always need to use high-quality barbell locks.
