The bars are just slightly shorter than full size 7'Olympic Bars and have the 1" diam, that allow it to be used with standard weights. The bar actually measures 6'06'' in length. The main advantage being that the bar has the same diameter as an Olympic Bar which makes them much easier to grip.
An excellent product and very pleased with the purchases. I previously purchased one from a shop few years ago and paid lot more for the exact same product.I have tried to buy new bars from other shops but could not find a supplier. Was very happy to discover amazon selling the product.
If you use standard weights,1'' (diam) dont waste money buying standard bars. Bully bars are much better and are a very well manufactured product.
It's a good bar. It's weighty, has sharp knurling (including centre knurl for added grip on squats), and longer than your average standard barbell.
However, as I've gotten stronger I have just noticed that the bar has now bent at the sleeves (see the picture I uploaded on the images section). Now the stated capacity is 150kg, however, I have only gotten up to 124kg deadlift for reps. I thought I would still have some leeway.
Obviously I'm quite disappointed about this as it is one of the more expensive standard barbells you can buy and thought it would be more solid. I didn't treat the barbell harshly (no dropping and no olympic lifts) but it has given out sooner than it should have.
I've decided to buy a proper olympic barbell now anyway.
This is still a good bar though and certainly played it's part in my training.
Distance between collars = 52 inches
End bits 13 and a half inches.
My beefy bar weighs 9KG not 10KG as advertised.
Buy one and become a Beefy Bar Kid who is big and strong.
The Beefy Bar was the solution to my problems! Although slightly shorter than an olympic barbell, the Beefy Bar is longer than most standard barbells and so, you'll need to keep that in mind if like me, you train at home and space is at a premium!
The bar itself is thicker and heavier than a standard barbell and more akin to an olympic bar in that respect; and for me, it can cope with loads in excess of that of a standard bar, albeit I've only had it up to 140kg so far.
For me, the big difference is that I can load plates much quicker than when using the spinlock type bar I had been working out with.
If you don't already have spring collars, you'll need to buy these since they don't come with the bar but I'd suggest that's a small price to pay if you've accrued a large collection of standard plates and like me, in these financially tough times, aren't in a position to upgrade to an olympic set.
Update: I have been doing rack pulls with 230kg of plates and 20kg of chains on this bar, still straight as the day I bought it.
I currently bench press 60kg on this bar and there is no flex or concern, I would be happy to go double this weight on this bar, but I am not an expert or Olympian.
I also bought some bike hut handlebar soft cork tape and fitted them (x2 in a pack) to the bar, total comfort and a joy to use. I will still use my gloves but they are not essential now.
With regards to specifications, the bar will accept the standard 1" diameter weights and it really is a big bar so be warned!! if your training in a confined space.
I think this is a great product and I really like the spin lock system.
Buy, train & enjoy.
