No gym should be lacking weight bars and barbells, no matter if it's a commercial fitness centre or your own home gym. Their biggest advantage is that, unlike weight machines, you can perform a plethora of different exercises with them and, with just a few tools, exercise every muscle in your body. So what is the difference between weight bars and barbells?

Weight bars are the basic part of any barbell - it is a metal bar on which the weight is placed. The biggest advantage of weight bars is that you can change the discs you workout with every workout. So you are not limited to a single weight, but you can tailor each workout to the body part you are currently training or your current form. And trust us, adding weights to the bars and listening to the crash of metal on metal is one of the most fun feelings you'll have while working out.

Another advantage is the ability to work out with just the bars itself without weights. This can be especially useful for beginners, who can first practice the proper form of each exercise and try out the right grip for each one. This can prevent unnecessary injuries that can occur precisely because of incorrect execution of the exercises. Home gym owners will also appreciate the fact that the axes save a lot of space - one two-handed axle for exercises, two one-handed axles for dumbbells and a set of weights practically make a whole pro gym worthwhile.

We also recommend that you add caps to the weight bars, so that you can attach the discs firmly to the bar. This will prevent the weights from sliding off and falling to the ground when you tilt the weight bar. A ruined floor or unnecessary injury is definitely not what you want to deal with instead of exercising.

Barbells, on the other hand, are dumbbells with the weights attached permanently, so each one has a clearly defined weight. The main advantage of weighted bars is that you don't have to worry about adding or removing weights, and you always know exactly what weight you're at. So if you want to enjoy the weights neatly arranged according to weight and gradually lower them one by one, the weight bars are just for you!

Then, between the two options described above, there is one more special category - the so-called EZ weight bars. These are specific to the different curvature of the bar, which brings additional exercise options and grip types that will engage muscles you never knew existed. The curved grip puts much less pressure on your wrists and elbows compared to a straight axis, so you can plan a harder workout with heavier weights.

Whether you opt for axes with weight bars and barbells, two-handed or one-handed dumbbells, or even a curved version of the EZ weight bars, we're absolutely sure you'll find the best quality option at StrongGear at affordable prices. And above all, remember - being healthy and fit is not just a trend, it's a lifestyle.
