I broke my York oly bar on Tuesday. The oly collar on one side broke in two, while I had it overhead snatching!! Anyway more importantly i now do not have a bar with which to train. :(. I love in the UK and was wondering if anybody had advice on where to buy a decent oly bar in the uk (would order from US but shipping is like $200!!) that can take some punishment and won’t break from repeated dropping ( what I’m putting the cause of the previous break, even though I only had an extra 15kg on bar as warming up)!
I regularly train the Olympic lifts, and also the big three with a reasonable weight, and have bumpers do that I can drop onto a plywood base!!
Any thoughts of models or where to buy would be greatly appreciated
