The olympic bar differs from the normal ones in that its weight is usually 20 kg, are longer (with measures on the 2.2 meters) and have ends with a diameter of 50 mm (to place olympic weights, the inner diameter of the discs is usually larger than that of standard discs).

We can find the olympic bars in many gyms, especially in those intended for the training of force with free weights.

There are also professional Olympic bars and calibrated. The olympic bar is compulsory in competitions of strength sports, such as powerlifting, the weightlifting or the strongman.

They are usually made of sturdy steel, capable of withstanding high quantities of weight (especially the competition ones). Some bars are chrome.

Ideally, especially for weightlifting, the most important thing is that the bar is flexible and can bend when training with high loads, and then return to a straight position. A good olympic bar must be flexible when it supports a lot of weight but without becoming permanently deformed. The flexibility of the bar makes the movement in the exercise much more fluid and thus improves the athlete's lifting.

The bar is used to do the exercises of different disciplines bodybuilding, bodybuilding, , weightlifting, , powerlifting... In all these disciplines, a long bar with weight discs at each end is used. In the case of the olympic bar, the discs must be special discs with an olympic inner diameter.

The olympic bar can have different measuresThere are bars from 1.2 m to 2.4 m in some cases. Shorter bars are normally used in gyms or for learning the technique. It is rare for a bar to exceed 2.2m. The bars can be used in powerlifting.

In a olympic bar, the central part (where it is gripped) has a smaller diameter than the ends (where the discs would be placed). This central area usually measures between 25 mm and 50 mm (as is the case of the Apollon bar: a special type of thicker bar to strengthen the forearm). Normally, the grip zone is about 28 mm.

They usually feature a knurled and roughened grip, which feels rough to the touch. This is to improve the lifter's grip.

At the ends of the bar discs are placed or removed. These ends are made of 50 mm the diameter of the Olympic discs is usually between 50 mm and 51 mm.

After the discs have been placed, they are secured by means of the closures o buffers security. The closures prevent the discs from slipping or slipping off and falling out. They must have a diameter that fits the 50 mm diameter of a olympic bar. They allow the athlete to make a much safer lift without force decompensation. The closures competition weights weigh about 2.5 kg and count towards the total weight lifted by the athlete.


The bar weightlifting is used in theolympic weightlifting (or simply "Olympic weightlifting") weightlifting), which consists of only two surveys: the start and the clean and jerk. In competition, the goal is to perform the heaviest lift possible; a single maximum effort lift. The athlete makes three attempts with the barbell weightlifting in each of the two lifts, and the total of the highest successful lifts determines the overall result. Olympic lifting is more a test of an athlete's explosive strength, power and technique than of raw lifting strength.

Bar weightlifting professionalIt has ball bearings and is more elastic than a power one.

On the other hand, the lifting ofpowerlifting is a pure strength sport. Powerlifting involves three lifts: the squat, banking and the deadlift. The lifting ofpower is similar to the weightlifting, in the sense that the lifter makes three attempts at each lift. However, powerlifting is more about moving as much weight as absolutely possible. Some powerlifting federations even allow the use of supportive equipment such as a bench top or asquats(store elastic energy) to help the lifter complete the performance.


A olympic bar of weightlifting for men measures 2.2 meters long and weighs 20 kilograms, about 44 pounds. The sleeves are 50 mm in diameter, and the shaft is 28 mm in diameter and makes up about 1.3 meters of the total bar length.

These are the specifications and dimensions of the bar weightlifting olympic 20 kg for men (via IWF).

The barweightlifting the women's Olympic size is slightly shorter, measuring 2.1 meters long and weighs 15 kilograms. The handle is also slightly thinner, at 25 mm (0.98 inches) thick. The women's Olympic bars do not have a central knurling.

These are the specifications and dimensions of the weightlifting olympic women's 15 kg (via IWF).

Theolympic bars for weightlifters have a couple of unique features. The first is the whip (the ability to store elastic energy) of the bar. This flex occurs as a result of the shaft being slightly narrower than other types of bars (28 mm vs. 29-31 mm). Professional athletes use this elasticity of the bar in your favor during an uprising.

The barshalterofilias must also have sleevessmooth swivels. This allows the lifter to quickly pass under the bar without having to release his grip. This effortless rotation is often achieved by using costly needle roller bearings on the handles. Finally, the quality of the Olympic bars is such that they have to withstand repeated drops from elevated positions.


Before buy a bar powerlifting or a bar weightlifting you must take into account some differences that exist between the two. The following are the characteristics of a bar powerlifting and of weightlifting, as well as other sports of force.


-The bar weightlifting has a length of 2,2 m and a weight of 20 kg for man. The women's bar measures 2,01 m and weighs 15 kg.

-One of the differences is that the bar has marked the grip zones to carry out the olympic exercises specific to weightlifting. These are the snatch (torn off), clean and jerk (clean and jerk).

-BearingsThis is another of its characteristics. The bar weightlifting has bearings that make it able to rotate smoothly making the lifts much more fluid and dynamic and protecting the athlete's joints.

-ElasticityThe bar must be able to act as an "elastic", bending and deforming when subjected to high loads and then returning to its normal straight position. A good olympic bar should bend under weight but not become permanently deformed. It must be flexible, this feature improves the lifts.

-It is also important that it is strong enough to be dropped from above the head.


The olympic bar from man measures 2.2 meters and has a weight of 20 kg. It has ends of 50 mm diameter to fit Olympic discs and a grip diameter of 28 mm. The grip zone usually measures 1.31 m. The grip zones of the bar weightlifting are spaced at approximately 910 mm to allow for a grip width suitable for olympic exercises. These are the standards of a bar for competition of weightlifting and Olympic games. The bar must be flexible and able to store elastic energy, rotate smoothly and be able to be dropped safely from overhead.


It is similar to that of men. However, the bar weightlifting for women measures 2,01 m and is somewhat lighter, with 15 kg weight. The diameter of its grip zone is 25 mm and it has no ring in its central area.

In the store you can buy both types of bars of weightlifting. There are bars techniques o training and also those of competition, the new, better-calibrated and more weight-bearing.

At powerlifting the same bar is used for both men and women, as we will see below.


To be considered for buy a bar of powerlifting: for the powerlifting, as in the case of the weightlifting, in this discipline, a much stiffer bar is needed because much heavier loads are used. Generally, only the bar deadlift is longer and more flexible, in order to move more weight.

The shells of a bar powerlifting are more basic and robust as they do not need to be rotated as was the case with the weightlifting.

-The grip marks in a bar powerlifting differ from those of weightlifting. They are usually spaced at about 810 mm. With the markings spaced closer together to ensure the regulatory grip width of bench press.

The IPF has the following requirements: the bar must have a grip diameter of between 28 mm and 29 mm, be no more than 2.2 meters long and its central area must be between 1.31 m and 1.32 m. The knurling of a iPF approved bar cannot be coated in chrome. Must weigh 20 kg (only the olympic bar) and 25 kg with safety latches on. 2.5 kg each.

The total weight to be lifted varies according to the exercise and the discs used. It depends on whether the lift is bench press, , deadlift o squat.


- In the gyms commercial, where people practice bodybuilding o bodybuilding, in the case of the Olympic bars, you can see Olympic bars that are very similar to competition bars.

- The strength training bars in gyms are not as rigorously manufactured as the competition ones. They have variations in terms of grip marks, diameter, size and flexibility.

- For strength training in gyms, the olympic bars can be used with any Olympic disc with a diameter of 50 mm. Such as rubber bumpers or iron Olympic discs.
