DetailsBarbell training should be the foundation of any weight lifting program because it allows you to train 4 key compound movements. Whilst squats and deadlifts primarily work your back and lower body, the bench press and overhead press allow you to focus primarily on your chest and shoulders. One of the issues that many athletes face is how to adequately train their hands and forearms for a stronger grip.
Our unique axle barbell offers a simple solution — the bar is 48mm thick which places greater emphasis on your forearms when gripping it. This simple addition to your weightlifting routine is a proven way to address one of the most common problem areas when it comes to developing all-body strength and conditioning. Not only is a strong grip essential for the compound exercises listed above; it will also allow you to increase the weight of isolation exercises, such as the dumbbell curl, whilst maintaining form and control of the weight.
Please note: Some barbell collars may not fit on the axle bars
