At 52 lbs, this bar is a bit heavier than others. It's a very thick shafted bar meant for heavy presses. The thick shaft is not ideal for heavy pulling movements, as it will slip out of your hands sooner. If you're into grip training, on the other hand, this will give you a workout.
Made with North American steel! This bar has York's signature split sleeve design, which ensures that the sleeve will not loosen. The center shaft has a black oxide coating, and the sleeves are chrome plated.
This ultra-thick bar is best for squats and pressing exercises. It will be much harder to hold onto for pulling movements like deadlifts and cleans than a thinner 28mm bar.
