Perfect bar for those looking for a standard bar to use with non-olympic plates. Has incorporated plate stops built into the bar at about 55 inches wide, perfect for squat racks and cages. One piece design allows to exceed over 250lbs without damage to bar.
I got standard weights and just bought an Olympic bench and didn't want to go buy a whole new set of Olympic weights so I bought this bar and it fits perfectly on the bench.
Great Price! Great Bar, I can use It with my new olympic bench and my older standard weights!
Like other reviewers, I recently decided to upgrade my bench/squat equipment which meant I would need a longer bar. But I already had a lot of standard 1" plates. This bar let me beef up my equipment without buying new weights. A great investment! I'm happy with the bar and DO recommend it BUT... Minus two stars because it's not actually 1" in diameter. It's 1/16" less, so 1" spring clips just slide around. I have regular collars with the screw tighteners so it's not really a problem for me, but buyer beware if you were planning on using spring clips. It could just be lack of quality control in an overseas plant but it could also be that they're shaving 1/16" off to reduce costs (that adds up in mass production). In any case, it should be a true 1" bar and will probably force some owners to do some extra shopping to get collars that fit.
Another note, my old shorter bar won't go to waste since it's more convenient for straight-bar curls and such.
Good, sturdy 1" weight bar. One piece of solid medal (do NOT buy a bar that is more than 1 piece). Good price. Screw on collars keep weight plates secure on bar tightly with no "rolling" of plates during exercises but are removed with ease. Perfect for home gym.
Not much to it - solid steel bar, smooth ends, nice knurling, can't beat the price.
This bar is advertised as a 1" standard bar. The one I received is maybe 3/4". My spring clamps will not clamp down on bar. I have another 1" bar they work just fine on.The bar is still useable.
I recently purchased a multipurpose squat rack to do squats, deadlifts, and bench pressing . . . but I needed an Olympic length (7-foot) bar to use with it. However, I already one a lot of standard 1" weight plates, so I was looking for a bar to use with those weights. Look no further! This bar, coupled with the "CAP Barbell 1 Chrome Spring Clip" is the perfect solution. Well-made, and a pleasure to use . . . all at an outstanding price. I would highly recommend this product!
This product works well with the CAP Bench. It's a perfect fit for 1" weights. I have no complaints.
Really nice, solid weight bar. This fits my new Olympic bench and now I don't have to replace all my 1 inch metal weights. Fantastic!
This barbell fits my power cage just right. 5 and 6 foot ones are too short. Solid quality. Everywhere else I looked for the exact same barbell were more than double Wal-mart's price. It came fast and store pick-up was seamless. Great purchase experience!
Perfect for me, but I don't expect to be benching over 250lbs. These 1" clamps work great that I got off Amazon: Standard Lock-Jaw Collar by Power Systems.
Haven't tried the springy clamps at Walmart but in the past I haven't had much luck with them.
This is a good sturdy barbell for 1 inch plates. I had old 1" plates and after buying olympic size bench i didn't want to buy 7' thick sleeves barbell and whole set of weights. So this purchase solved my purpose and saved me money.
I'f you have standard weights and a Olympic bench, this is the only way to go.
I had the bar shipped to the store to avoid shipping cost. Arrived in less than a week from date of ordering. I have many standard plates with another 7 ft bar but it is threaded and the sound the plates make sliding over the threads irritate me. So I took a chance on this bar and it's not bad. Like another user commented, it is a bit smaller than a 1 inch so spring clamps don't work. I rarely use clamps but to be on the safe side I ordered standard lock jaw collars from amazon. Unfortunately they are almost the same price as the bar but I would hate to chip a floor tile in my home.
Just upgraded to a squat rack but didn't want to have to buy Oly bar and plates. This standard width 7 foot bar works perfectly.
Real great price and solid wish other weight equipment would go for as good of price as this item did so I can buy the many other things still need but it was a great price. Very shinny chrome and great length 7 ft hope they keep this in stock I want couple more if Walmart keeps their low prices.
This bar is supposed to hold up to 250 pounds. I loaded 200 pounds on the bar and did squats for 3 sets of 10 reps. The bar is now permanently bent from the weight. It is still usable but i will not be using the bar for squats again for fear of damaging the bar further.
If you plan on lifting more than 200 lbs I would highly suggest buying a higher quality bar.
I was charge a handling fee just like everyone else, but I received the bar wrapped in plastic and missing one of the rubber seals that keep the barbell weights from sliding loose on the bar. Luckily I have another bar that I no longer use that I was able to take it from.
Nice basic bar. Just what we wanted!
