A barbell is a piece of exercise equipment typically used to perform weightlifting exercises such as the squat, deadlift and bench press. It consists of an iron rod (bar) about 38 cm in diameter that weighs 2-8 kg with ends on which are attached circular weights (discs). The discs vary in size: some may have up to 25 pounds, while others may have up to 45 pounds or more.
Barbells are often used in powerlifting and weight training workouts because they support heavy loads without sacrificing the stability needed for heavy lifting.
A weightlifting barbell is made up of metals used to do various weightlifting exercises, the most common of which are the bench press, squat, and deadlift.
Exercisers can choose to use either a standard Olympic bar or a lighter-weight bar with larger-diameter grips that are more appropriate for everyone or people with smaller hands. https://liftdex.ae/barsandplates
