In searching online for a "barbell" of sorts that I could use during a video that I have, I came upon the cap barbell. I didn't want to have to change out the weights so I thought that this was perfect. I bought a 10 lb and 20 lb. When recieving it site to store (lighting fast mind you) it was saran wrapped like you would not believe! It took me at least a half hour to unwrap just one! I couldn't use a cutting device becasue I was so afraid that I would cut into the super soft padding. When they were finally unwrapped I was surprised how fat they were. The bar itself does not fit nicely in my hand. I am a woman with average size hands. I feel like it needs to be able to be gripped more naturally. I have considered cutting away the section of padding where my hands would go so that it would be skinnier to grip, but am afraid of wrecking it. It works good if you do exercises with it on your shoulders,(like squats and lunges) but I don't like doing two hand curls with it, or chest press. I am bummed! Wish I had seen them in person....I would not have gotten it for my video.
I was looking for a bar exactly like the one I use at the gym - soft grip and no weights to change out. This one fits the bill.
This is a great product to have for your home. I am hoping to get a few more in different weights. Lots of great exercises can be done with these!
I wanted to find a weighted bar to use for some workout DVDs I have. I didn't want to spend a lot, and also didn't want a bar with weighted plates. While researching on the web, I found the Cap Barbell Workout Bar and it fit my criteria. I bought the 20 lbs bar, and have used it with my DVDs already. It's a good size, padded, and fits perfectly in my hands. Also, you can't beat the price!
I took a bodysculpting class that used these bars and this just rocks. I love using this for triceps, biceps, squats..etc. I LOVE IT!!
The bar was over wrapped when I picked it up from the store. It took me forever to unwrap it. Like the other comment, the bar is rather thick, however I tell my female clients, this is a chance to build up those wrist muscles and grip strength. For the price, I would say its a winner.

I purchased this bar because I wanted an additional bar to do squats. I didn't want to take the bar I have on my weight bench off every time I want to do squats. It just wasn't convenient. Now that I have this additional bar I can do a variety of exercises at anytime throughout the day. I find myself using it more often. I have had no problems with this bar and find it comfortable on my shoulders and easy to hold. It has a nice soft coating around the bar.
Took me a while to decide which size to order. I went with the 15lb weight and I'm glad I did. Although it was a bit heavy at first, it's perfect for squats, chest presses and bicep curls. I'm also very happy with the quality.
I ordered this body bar because I feel its essential to my upper body workout. The quality is great so I'll be able to keep up my workouts until the weight of the bar becomes too familiar. My advice to anyone ordering any workout equipment; do not order something if you don't know how to use it. There are many videos on YouTube alone on body bar exercises.
I really like the weight bar. I only need a few weights and this way I just get the bar for each one and don't have to mess with adding/removing weights from each end of the bar when I want a different weight. All I do is pick up the weight bar I want. Excellent product, delivery and value.
While this weight bar was exactly what I was looking for, it came with a sticker attached that says the materials are known to cause cancer. No one else mentioned that in the reviews before I bought it. I'm returning for that reason only.
Compared to other work out bars on the market, these are a great value & do the job. Shipping was reasoably quick!
Love this product pretty heavy packaging love the foam covering the metal and I got the 20 pounders just right for my squats and use it also for arm workout.
I received my cap barbell 5 lb and 8 lb workout weights on time. It was very easy to pick up at Walmart. This is the way to go.I started with the 5 lb and I am already to start using the 8 lb bar. I am a 76 year old female getting myself ready for the golf season.
I suffered a stroke in 2010. I had both in-patient and out-patient physical therapy for 6 months. The physical therapy included weight bars. Since I wanted to continue therapy at home, I needed to find something similar.
These bars are excellent and with the incrementally increasing sizes, I have been able to progress thru heavier bars.
Walmart has the best prices I could find for this brand online as well as the best prices/value for even similar brands. I have purchased 4 from Walmart so far and am very pleased.
Please note the diameter of the larger bars. If you have smaller hands, you might find the bigger ones harder to use.
Purchased the 10 lbs bar for stretching exercises. The bar is about 1.5 - 2 inches thick, so if you have small hands might be too big for you. Other than that great bar.
Product came as expected and functions as expected.
You can work out large muscle groups. They are soft and easy to hold onto. I am going to buy a few more!
These are great.... Love them.
This workout bar has taken my exercise routines to the next level. I was looking for a heavier piece of equipment to help tone and strengthen my body and I am feeling the burn using this bar. I have gradually increased my weights from 3 lbs -15 lbs so I decided to purchase the 20 lb bar. I use it when doing squats, arm and shoulder workouts. I am very pleased with my purchase. The material around the bar is comfortable on my hands and for those concerned with sweaty palms like me I use workout gloves to grip the bar and not worry about dropping the bar from slippery palms.
