The Again Faster Competition Weightlifting Barbell is our top-of-the-range Olympic bar and is tailor-made for Olympic lifts. Versatile, durable, and packed with great features, it is ideally suited for snatches or clean and jerk, but will stand up to the demands of powerlifting too. Simply put, the Competition Barbell is the ultimate multi-purpose bar, whether for your home gym or as a reliable workhorse in a commercial setting.
Our Competition Bar features a hard chrome finish, one of the most rust-resistant and low-maintenance finishes available for a quality barbell. While all barbells will need some upkeep, the hard chrome finish ensures that maintaining your bar will not be an endless chore, a useful feature in the humid atmospheres of many gyms in the UK.
The knurling on our Competition Bar is medium-aggressive, which always proves a popular feature. This gives the best of both worlds by giving you a knurl that allows you to get a firm grip on the bar – great for heavier lifts – without tearing up your hands on higher-rep workouts. Unlike most Olympic bars, the Again Faster Competition Barbell has added versatility thanks to its centre knurling. A centre knurl is a must-have feature for anyone looking for extra grip during squats.
The barbell is 28mm in thickness for an easy grip and has a 200k PSI tensile strength. It also has a max weight capacity of 680kg, more than generous enough even for those who like to lift heavy. The quality of steel used for our Competition Barbell is one that also gives a better whip without leaving you worrying about bending the bar. The level of whip also makes it a forgiving barbell ideally suited to Olympic movements.
The real draw of the Again Faster Competition Barbell is its 10 needle bearings and 2 stainless steel bushings. This gives an exceptional spin on this bar, which makes a huge difference when you’re looking to hit those PRs on the clean and jerk or snatch. This construction also ensures the turn-over during your lifts is extra-smooth. Plus, the barbell sleeves are ribbed, which helps to prevent your weights from sliding during training.
Anyone looking to improve on their Olympic lifts or whose training regularly includes higher-rep workouts will love this bar. So, if you’re after a versatile and durable bar that will stand up to the demands of your home gym or even a busy commercial setting for years to come, the Again Faster Competition Weightlifting Barbell may be the perfect bar for you.
Always protect your investment! Wipe down your bar regularly with a light coat of WD-40 or 3-in-1 oil. See our Barbell Maintenance Guide for more information and helpful tips to extend the life of your Bar.
