BARBELL SELECTION GUIDE

Selecting the perfect barbell can be an intensely personal decision. Some athletes prefer a stiff barbell with aggressive grip, while others want something whippy and spinny. With so many options on the market, how do you select the barbell that best matches your training focus and skill level?

WHAT'S YOUR LIFTING FOCUS?

What kind of lifting do you do? Do you focus your training on olympic lifts, CrossFit / HIIT style workouts, or power lifts such as bench, deadlift, and squats? Or do you need an all around barbell?
