This 5 feet or 60” barbell by Titan Fitness is an Olympic weight bar which is very compatible and convenient to use at home or commercial gym. The bar is constructed using heavy metal steel with a hard chrome finish on it. The chrome is expensive yet the best because it prevents the bar from rusting way better than black oxide or zinc coating. The oxidation rate of chrome is very less, making it compatible to be used in humid regions. Also you won’t be needing to maintain the bar regularly because Chrome is considered as maintenance free. The bar has a dimeter of two inches which is one of the standard dimensions of barbell and can fit any standard Olympic weight plates very easily. The standard diameter will let you to buy weight plates that are coming within your range except of buying the expensive weight set by renowned companies. Having a grip area of diameter 1.1” is also an important factor of this bar because it lets you easily adjust your hand on the knurl which helps you to lift weight properly and securely. The knurling done on the barbell is very moderate along with dual knurl IPF marks that let you comfortably adjust your hand while lifting heavy weight set. There is no chance of digging on your hand because of the knurl, if you are still too curious about the marks then it is preferred to use gloves while lifting. There might be a chance of disliking of knurl by professional weightlifters, as they prefer a more aggressive type of knurl.
The barbell is essential and used for curls, bench press, deadlifts, squats and many more exercises.Titan fitness barbell has the ability to withstand weight up to 500 pounds. Therefore, with a bar weight of only 25 pounds, this is a pretty massive number to bear which Titan fitness barbell’s do with ease. Having a heavy duty construction and hard chrome finish, it is still recommended to properly maintain and clean the barbell to keep the design and look as it is, for a longer period of time. So for that, a light coat of ointment, known as WD-40 and three in one oil are preferred to increase Titan Fitness Bar life span. The spin of the barbell is quite good due to bras bushings. The bar produces a very smooth and repetitive spin on lighter and moderate weight but the spin essentially decreases if you load up the barbell more than 350 pounds. Hence, in a low priced bar these small issue can be over looked. Having a low tensile strength makes this barbell very whipper. Making it very easily to perform deadlifts and cleans. Thus, having no center knurl and large whip, this bar is not recommended for squats. The affordability of this barbell is further assisted with free shipping. The barbell comes in good packaging on which every part and component are properly packed and delivered. Titan fitness follows a policy of providing high quality customer service, so they ship the barbell within two working days.
