How much is an Olympic bar cost?

Standard barbells can't hold as much weight as an Olympic bar, only around 100 to 200 pounds. The main difference between standard and Olympic bars is the diameter of their sleeves, the part of the barbell which holds the weight plates. A standard bar has a uniform 1-inch diameter throughout the entire bar and sleeves.

Should I buy Olympic or standard weights?

Why do barbells spin?

Bearings. On an Olympic barbell, the shaft and bar ends are independent pieces, and the end must spin on the shaft to dampen the centrifugal force of the plates spinning on the bar. To allow the bar to spin more freely and reduce wear, a third piece sits in between the shaft and bar end.
