Buyers Guide: Tips on Purchasing an Olympic Barbell

John catches up with Bass from SPS Gear to find out some basic tips when purchasing an Olympic barbell.

In the video above, Bass gives us four things we should all look out for before making a purchase, which include, price, the bar, the ends and finally, the coating. He also talks about things like warranty, the knurling of the bar and what you might expect to see in some of the cheaper Olympic bars on the market.

If you’re currently searching for a bar for use at home, or a CrossFit affiliate owner looking to deck out your own gym with a number or Olympic bars, make sure you check out the video to ensure you don’t make a regrettable purchase!
