Types of barbells: What types of barbells are there?

In this section you will find barbells in various lengths and materials. First you have to choose between a short or long barbell bar, depending on what you want to train. Then you have to decide on the appropriate diameter - 30/31 mm or 50/51 mm.

Dumbbell bars

The basic equipment of every athlete's dumbbell set-up includes the dumbbell bar with the corresponding weights. This dumbbell bar can be equipped with different, sometimes lower weights and is therefore ideal for beginners. The arm muscles are primarily trained here. They are available in lengths of 35, 42 and 51 cm. The diameter of the dumbbell bar (30/31 or 50/51 mm) determines the possible load capacity. They also have the lowest weight of 3 - 5 kg.

✓ Max. load capacity: 80 kg (30/31 mm) and 100 kg (50/51 mm)

Barbell bars

Another barbell for building strength is the barbell bar, which can be categorised as such from a length of 120 cm. They have a very high load-bearing capacity and are therefore suitable for the more advanced among you. The barbell bar from Bad-Company can hold weights of up to 150 kg and can be ordered online in 8 lengths (120, 130, 150, 170, 180, 200, 218, 220 cm) - but this increases the weight of the barbell. In the case of the Olympic version, these have a practical roller bearing and are made of spring steel. This enables optimal training for the back, arms and shoulders.

SZ barbells

The wave shape of the SZ barbell (also known as curl bar) makes this barbell bar - also classified as a barbell bar - ideal for effective arm training, both for the biceps and triceps. The special shape relieves the strain on the wrists and is therefore suitable for beginners, professionals and bodybuilders. With a length of 120 cm, they can withstand a load of 100 kg.

Super SZ bars

This barbell is similar to the standard SZ barbell, with the difference that it has a pronounced wave shape and a higher load capacity - up to 200 kg. Thanks to its high load capacity, this barbell is very suitable for hardcore bodybuilding. It is also characterized by a particularly joint-friendly training feel.

✓ For bore weights: 30/31 and 50/51 mm

✓ Max. load capacity: 200 kg (30/31 mm) and 150 kg (50/51 mm)

Tricep Barbells

Another alternative to the barbell is the triceps barbell. The special shape of this barbell allows two grip variations, which place different levels of strain on the triceps. Another advantage of these special handles is that they protect the joints and ligaments by allowing them to be used in a natural hand position. The load capacity varies between 150 kg and 250 kg.

Squats can be performed as well as deadlifts and shoulder lifts. Thanks to the 2.5 cm solid steel reinforcement, the Hexagon barbell from Bad-Company can support a load of 300 kg. Ideal for advanced users and bodybuilders. The central focus of the handles also promises ideal load distribution and protects your back. The Hexagon Bars have the highest weight of all barbells at 20 and 23 kg, respectively, which also allows for advanced training without additional weights.

Special Bars

In addition to the barbells listed so far, there are also a number of special versions - the special bars. These include, for example, the Heavy Duty Strongman Long Bar - weight just under 31 kg - which stands out due to its special design. Due to its high weight, it has to be held further away from the body - which puts optimal strain on the back muscles - and it can withstand a load of up to 400 kg. It is very suitable for CrossFit. There is also the Tri-Trap Bar, which is ideal for triceps and shoulder training thanks to its shape and two different grip variations, and is particularly gentle on the hands and wrists thanks to the ergonomic, rubberized handles.

Your questions about our barbells

What hole diameters are available for barbells?

The so-called hole diameter indicates which weight plates or weights fit on the barbell. The dimensions are standardized and can be differentiated according to standard size and Olympic size. Both model variants are available for dumbbells and barbells. The standard size barbells have a hole diameter of 30 mm. They can be fitted with space-saving, compact 30/31 mm weight plates. The Olympic size barbells therefore have a 50 mm hole diameter and can be fitted with 50/51 mm weight plates. The larger diameter is due to the ball bearing in the barbell, which provides stability and balance. The Olympic plates are larger and are used more often by advanced users and bodybuilders.

What barbell closures are there?

There are also different types of closures for barbells. They all have their own advantages when it comes to attaching the weight plates. A distinction is made between clamp closures and screw closures.

Spring closure

The spring lock belongs to the group of clamp locks. This means that no threads are required on the barbells. They are simply pressed together slightly at the designated points and pushed over the barbells. This prevents the weight plates from wobbling around. The spring lock also allows the weights to be changed quickly.

Star closure

The star lock can be classified as a screw lock. The barbell requires a suitable thread for assembly, onto which the lock is screwed. Assembly takes a little longer, but is safer and prevents the weights from slipping sideways. This alternative is particularly recommended for beginners.

Which barbell for deadlifts?

It is considered one of the best exercises for a muscular, well-trained back - the deadlift. But which barbell is best suited for this? Since this exercise is one of the most demanding and at the same time most prone to injury, high-quality equipment is of utmost importance. The load-bearing capacity of the barbell and the surface of the handles are particularly important. Large, knurled grip surfaces are good here.

Which barbell for bench press?

Bench presses are one of the most popular strength exercises among fitness athletes and bodybuilders. A barbell is best suited for this. It should definitely have a sufficiently long inner dimension to fit into the designated shelves on a bench press. Barbells with a length of 160 - 180 cm should be sufficient to ensure you can do a comfortable and efficient workout.
