Olympic vs. Standard Weight Sets
As you can imagine from the name, Olympic weights and bars are a step up from standard lifting sets. Often used for competition, these weights offer more adaptability and less disruption and spinning while lifting. Ideal for heavy lifting, Olympic weights offer several advantages over standard weights such as increased stability, better weight accuracy, and quiet, smoother lifting. Of course, with advantages like these, you can expect a higher price point. Depending on your needs, these benefits may outweigh the additional out-of-pocket expense.
When comparing standard plates against Olympic weights, you’re likely to notice the difference in the center hole size. Rather than a 1-inch space, Olympic weights have a 2-inch center hole. This difference in space makes the Olympic weight larger although weighing the same. This difference also prevents you from using a standard bar with Olympic plates.
If you’ve ever lifted a lot of weight using a standard bar, you may have noticed it bend. Standard weight bars just can’t handle higher weights. And this bend can throw you off balance quickly, leading to a potentially dangerous situation. Olympic power bars are safety tested and rated for 1,500 lbs. allowing you to bring out your Hulk smash without any worry.

How to examine a used olympic barbell before you purchase?

If you live in a place where people have yard sales, that would also be a great place to shop for a barbell. When shopping around, ensure that you know the different types of barbells and which one is good for you, especially if this is your first time.
Should you buy lbs or Kg weights?
This decision depends on your location and whether you are lifting weights competitively or not. If you live in the US, it’s easier to buy lbs plates because that is the standard measurement of weight in the country. If you plan on competing in the Olympics or other weight lifting sport events, you should buy Kg plates. What’s awesome is that you can find Olympic weights for sale in Kilograms if that is what you prefer. They start from 1.25-25Kgs.
Who can use Olympic weights?
Both trained and untrained persons can use Olympic weights. The term untrained is used to describe someone who doesn’t have any experience lifting weights. If you fall under this category, you should start slow with about three workouts per week and grow from there. An experienced person can start with four workouts per week and increase the number of reps per session.
