Hey everyone, I’m looking for an olympic bar because the cheapo one I have from Sports Authority has gaps between the sleeves and the handle. The result is a very loud clanging sound when dropped with weights.
So I’m looking for a good quality olympic bar (I’m not in competition or anything). I don’t plan on lifting 300+ lbs, and I’m ways away from that right now. I’ve searched this site and seen names like Eleiko and Ivanko, but they’re just way too expensive for me. So I’m considering the Pendlay Economy Bar or the York International Mens Needle Bearing Bar.
Which one of these should I go for, or is there a better bar for the same prices?
Thanks in advance!
