Olympic barbells are used in Weightlifting, Powerlifting, CrossFit, and strength training for virtually any sport where the athlete trains with increased resistance.

Copper Bush Bars

Don’t let the low-price fool you. These barbells are designed to take a beating. Over the years we have sold many of them to commercial gyms and studios.

Copper bushings require no maintenance as the copper is self-lubricating.

The sleeves might not spin as well as the bearings, but they will be more than enough for majority of entry level trainees. 

Applications of the barbell – Powerlifting, General Strength. 

Best plates to use – Olympic Weight Plates.

Thrust Bearing Barbells 

As the name indicates the barbell sleeves come with built in bearings. 

They offer smoother rotation, compared to Copper Bush Bars. 

You need a lot of explosive power to complete a snatch or clean and jerk. Bearings reduces the torque produced by such lift. Allowing you to stray in control of the barbell the whole time.

I would recommend lubricating these barbells every once in a while, to ensure smooth rotation. As these bars do not posses the same features of self-lubrication as copper bushings.

Application of the barbell – Weightlifting, CrossFit, General Strength.

Best plates to use – Bumper Plates.

Technique

Not everyone is strong enough to train with a 20 kg barbell. That’s why we have decided to add an aluminium technique bar to our barbell range.

Because of aluminium construction the weight of the barbell has been reduced to mere 7.5 kgs. Making this barbell perfect for any entry level weightlifter or inexperienced trainer.

Applications of the barbell – rehab, child training, women’s bar, weightlifting technique bar.

Please note this barbell has a load rating of 60 kgs. Once you have reached 60 kgs, you can switch to a normal Olympic Barbell.

Best plates to use - Technique Plates. Bumper Plates 

Accessory Bars

Most commonly used between bodybuilders and general strength enthusiasts. These barbells are great for isolating a specific muscle group. They are made out of the same materials as the 7ft barbells. 

They come with the rotating sleeves, there might not be much explosive power in your bicep curls or triceps extensions, but it is always good to reduce the stress on your joints, regardless of the lift you are performing.

Another great feature of the accessory bars is that they accept the same Olympic plates as your 7 ft Olympic barbell.

Built to Last

Power Maxx entry level barbells are made out of spring steel, with sleek chrome finish and knurling.

7ft barbells come in two load ratings:

1000 lbs – offers slightly more whip, comes with a knurled, 30 mm thick shaft. 

1500 lbs – stiffer bar with less whip. Knurled 32 mm shaft.

If you can’t decide which bar to get, I would recommend choosing a bar based on the thickness, not on the load rating of the barbell. There are only a few people in Australia who could come close to exceeding a 1000 lbs load rating. 

We have supplied these barbells to many commercial gyms and studios across whole Australia. Just because these are budget barbells, does not mean they can’t take a beating. Feel free to swing by our showroom and give it a go!

No need to compromise

Space sometimes can be a decider between free weight and machine training. We came up with a solution – 185 cm barbell.

The length of the barbell has been reduced by shortening the sleeves of the barbell. The inner bar shaft has remained the same length making it suitable for all modern Squat Racks and Bench Presses. 

If you think that you are going to run out of sleeve space. Have a look at our classic thin Powerlifting Discs.
