Olympic Aluminium Training Bar Technique OB72-8 by RATED®

The Olympic aluminium training bar OB72-8 is constructed of aluminium and weighs 8 kg.  This is designed to assist in the practice and training of correct form and technique for Olympic lifts such as clean & jerk, snatch etc. Using the OB72-8 8 kg bar plus two 5 kg XBUM50 rubber bumper plates the total weight will only be 18kgs, this being a manageable weight for beginners to refine their skills before moving to a heavier weight. The above combination of bar and weight plates will give you the same set up and feel to that of a full OB86 20kg bar, but obviously without the extra weight.

The RATED® Olympic aluminium training bar constructed from Aluminium and chrome, with copper bushings and is rated to 110lbs. Even though bushings are not quite as good as bearings for speed of rotation, these bushings are very close.

The Aluminium premium quality shaft is 1250mm in length and 28mm in diameter with medium knurling (no center knurling) allowing you to maintain a secure firm grip on the bar.

The smooth rotating sleeves are 255mm (length) and constructed of steel with hard chrome finish.
