“Iron never lies to you. You can go out and listen to all kinds of talk, hear that you are a god or a total bastard. Iron will always give you a real kick. Iron is a reference point, an all-knowing giver of perspective. It’s always there, like a beacon in the dark!
Quote from IRON AND THE SOUL by Henry Rollins, an article that originally appeared in Details Magazine
HEAVY METAL OLYMPIC BAR 20 kg is an Olympic-size barbell, which will be useful in every home and professional gym. It is the best model in our offer. It was made of high quality steel and covered with a special black ceramic coating which provides increased resistance to damage and perfectly protects against corrosion.
Each of the two sleeves has been equipped with 4 precisely made needle bearings ensuring maximum smooth rotation and special surface structure improving stability of the plates during exercise.
The reliability of the grip has been increased by the use of knurling, i.e. special punches made on a lathe, which resulted in cross grooves on the surface of the plate. Grip areas have been accurately marked and divided into sections with a width of 20 cm and a distance of 4 cm.
HEAVY METAL OLYMPIC BAR 20 kg is made in accordance with IPF (International Powerlifting Federation) standard, so it can be successfully used by professionals in professional powerlifting competitions, including powerlifting competitions.
