Whether you’re focused on olympic style lifts, such as snatch and clean and jerk, or love-to-hate movements such as thrusters and presses, the Oly Lftr bar is for you.
Bearing bars are typically used for fast, dynamic movements, such as olympic weightlifting exercises like clean and jerk or snatch.
People who use bearing or bushing weights interchangeably often do so because they're not married to any particular style of lifting. Both provide great spins. However, using a bushing bar over a bushing one for fast lifts can put strain on your wrists as the barbell won't spin as fast due to the inertia of the weight plates.
The Oly Lftr Olympic Bar has 10 needle bearings on each side. The bearings are located between the sleeves and the bar. Because the bearings aren't fixed to the bars or sleeves, they let the sleeves rotate around the shaft. Bearings are faster and have less friction compared to bushings.
Zine barbell finishes protect against rust very well, so they are perfect for high humidity environments. Plus, the zinc finish on the Oly Lftr shaft works its way into the knurling causing it to be slightly less aggressive on your hands.
With needle bearings inside the loading sleeves, you can use the Oly Lftr bar for a variety of lifts. The bearings slide smoothly against the steel sleeve, and provides smooth, low-friction spin. When performing any lift that requires the bar to spin, this barbell will decrease the torque your wrists and elbows must endure. The fast spin makes this a solid barbell for olympic weightlifting.
The volcano-style moderate knurling maximizes grip while eliminating sharp points that can tear your hands. Medium knurling is ideal for anyone focusing on high-rep lifts while still maintaining excellent grip on the bar during power lifts. The absence of center knurling is perfect for power cleans, as there is no knurl to cause chest irritation.
