Learning complex weightlifting moves has never been so simple!
Olympic Lifting is a serious sport. It requires a level of strength, flexibility and skill that most people will never quite get.
The problem has always been being able to learn the basics with a weight that is manageable. Typically you’d have to use a 20kg bar plus plates. If you’re lucky enough to have a pair of our 2.5kg Iron Edge technique plates, you’d still be working with a 25kg bar weight. Not a huge weight I know, but when you’re learning the intricacies of the snatch and the clean & jerk, it’s a lot of weight for a rookie to be holding overhead.
This madness leads to injury and can make weightlifting a scary and intimidating sport. But here’s a solution that can make learning weightlifting easy and safe for all.
The 8kg/6ft aluminium barbell is ideal for the budding weightlifter. Combine this bar with our 2.5kg technique plates and you’ve got the perfect combination for anyone starting out. You can learn the technique with as little as 13kg total weight.
If you’re starting out with weightlifting or you teach others, then the 8kg/6ft aluminium barbell should be exactly what you’re looking for.
