Olympic Weights and Bars
Olympic Bars are longer and stronger than Standard Bars and are able to withstand a maximum weight load of up to 750kg. Olympic Weight Plates therefore come in heavier sizes with a 2” diameter hole in the centre of the plate. They are available from 1.25kg up to 50kg. Olympic Weights are better suited for intermediate/advanced strength trainer who are lifting heavier than the novice/beginner lifter. There are a number of different Weight Plates available, including Cast Iron, Bumper Grip and Rubber plates.
