What is An Olympic Bar?

The Olympic sport of weightlifting gives competitors the opportunity to prove how heavy they can lift in just one go. The competition is split into different weight classes, and each entrant gets three lifts with the combined total of the top two lifts taken to ascertain the overall position in the competition.

Olympic weightlifting tests the explosive strength of competitors with two types of lift. Each lift is executed quickly, with a wider range of motion than other strength classes, and have slightly different set ups:

  • Snatch

The snatch is a single motion move with a wide grip. The aim is to lift the bar from the floor above the head in one move.

  • Clean and Jerk

The clean and jerk is a two-step move with a narrow grip where the barbell is first raised to collarbone height (the clean) and then pushed up above the head (the jerk).

The clean and press used to be an Olympic lift but is no longer an active part of the competition.

With the right Olympic bar and bumper weights, you can perform these ballistic moves as part of your training regime, but it is important to understand what an Olympic bar is.

An Olympic bar is a steel bar with rotating sleeves at either end for the weights to be attached. Competition bars are 7.2ft for men and 6.6ft for women, weighing 20kg and 15kg, respectively. Here at NC Fitness Gear our Olympic bars and bumpers are a standard 7ft long with weights of 10/15/20kg. The weights themselves have a larger diameter hole to fit on the Olympic bars, and the rotating sleeve allows the weights to spin independently which is safer for the heavier lifts.
