Olympic Weights 

Olympic plates have 2" diameter holes. They are the most popular type for commercial gyms, and in recent decades they have become more and more popular for home gyms as well.

For plates with 1" holes, and the bars to fit them, see the Standard Weights.

  • Olympic Weight Sets

    If you got here looking for hand weights (common mistake), see our dumbbells.

  • Olympic Weight Plates

    All weight plates here have iron or steel cores, including rubber coated plates and easy-grip plates. See our Bumper Plates for solid rubber plates meant for dropping when doing olympic lifts / Crossfit®.

  • Bumper Plates

    Bumper weights are solid high-density rubber. They are used primarily for cleans or snatches, where the bar is dropped to the floor from a significant height.

    All brands of bumper plates listed below are the same 450mm (17.72") IWF regulation diameter, except as noted. This means that most brands can be mixed together on the same bar.

  • 7 ft Bars

    Bars for various uses: strength training, bodybuilding, powerlifting and olympic lifting.

    Use the filters to narrow down your choices. Guide to olympic bar filters.

  • Weightlifting Technique Bars

    These bars are lighter weight but have the same inside shaft length as other weightlifting bars (about 52"), with only the sleeves cut short to about 10". They are meant for training the movements for beginner lifters, with only one or two plates on the bar.

    We don't recommend you use any of the aluminum bars on a rack. They can get damaged more easily than steel when set down hard. Anything not clearly marked here as aluminum in the description is steel.

  • Womens Weightlifting Bars

    These bars have a thinner 25mm shaft (other bars are 28-32mm). Women especially prefer these types of bars because they typically have smaller hands, and the smaller shaft allows them to get a better grip. They work great for kids too, or anyone with smaller hands.

  • Shortie Bars

    These olympic bars are lighter and shorter than traditional 7ft olympic bars. They are useful for users with limited space and for women and others who need a lighter starting weight.

  • Hex Deadlift Bars

    This type of bar may be called a trap bar, hex bar, or shrug bar. It's used for deadlifts or shrugs. This specialized bar gives the ability to keep your hands at your sides and nearly eliminating the risk of hitting your legs. This makes the lifts less technical to perform, allowing you to increase the weight substantially and reduce the risk of a back injury due to poor form.

  • Specialty Bars

    All bars that aren't straight. Curl bars, tricep bars, cambered squat bars and more.

  • Collars

    Secure your weight plates onto the bar with a pair of collars.

  • Storage

    Store all your weight plates and bars off the floor!
