The York Barbell 7' Olympic bar, is manufactured in our York Barbell factory in Canada. Made from quality solid North American Steel and then chrome plated it is the ideal Olympic bar for home use.
Weighing 20 KG, the bar is designed for static lifts* and is a great option for more advanced home use training. Max weight for the bar is 320 KG.
Training at home with a quality York Barbell will help you, lose fat, gain lean body mass, and improve your general fitness and health levels.
Exercises can be performed with the barbell itself (it weights 20 KG) or you can add some Olympic 2" Plates to increase the intensity. Remember the spring collars or bulldog collars to keep those plates in place.
Adding a bar to your home workout programs is perfect for those that can not get to the gym or feel its too expensive. Workouts can be performed in the comfort of your own home away from your busy schedule.
