Frequently Asked Questions

This choice is entirely up to personal preference. Barbells are crucial for strength training as they allow you to progressively overload and are typically better for heavy lifts. Dumbbells are ideal for isolation lifts and perfect when implemented into endurance-style training. Everyone has their favourite but both barbells and dumbbells are fundamentally important when it comes to weight training!

The term “barbell” encompasses a broad range of different varieties of weight-lifting bars. However, the standard men’s Olympic weightlifting bar is 20kg or 45lbs and 15kg or 33 lbs for women. Typical powerlifting bars are built to withstand immense weights and usually weigh 25kg or 55lbs to be able to hold during exercises such as deadlifts.
