Adding a barbell set to your home gym, crossfit gym, is an essential addition if you want to take part in stepping up your game. Fewer things can be conjured of when creating a home gym than to add a barbell set and free weights. I take huge pride in the big three exercises when weightlifting. Squats, Bench Press, Deadlifts. All three require the use of a barbell and weights. Here are our reviews of the absolute best barbell bar’s out there.

3.) XMark LUMBERJACK 7′ Olympic Bar
The LUMBERJACK 7′ Olympic bar is built for performance. A high quality shaft coating adds to the longevity of the bar. The shaft coating on XMark’s LUMBERJACK Bar is black manganese phosphate, which provides better rust resistance than black oxide, while also giving the bar shaft a slightly, tacky feel.
The medium depth fine knurling is dual spec with IWF and IPF knurling marks. Your XMark 7′ Olympic Lumberjack Bar is an investment. It’s high quality. Stainless steel, Chromes finishes, and a pretty sick looking logo(but seriously, it’s not about the logo) make this a bar definitely worth trying out.
TEXAS STAR Olympic Plates
The TEXAS STAR Olympic plate weight’s recessed 5 grip handles have spacious openings fitting comfortably in the hand while the stainless steel precision hub ensures a perfect fit and ease of loading. A Texas tough, premium rubber casing made from virgin and recycled rubber covers each one-piece high quality cast iron plate weight. As with all recycled rubber plates, these will have an odor which will dissipate over time.
4.) iheartsynergee Olympic 20kg – Rated 1500lbs for Weightlifting
This barbell is made with world renowned steel, made with a high tensile strength of 190,000 PSI. Made with the perfect amount of “whip” and “flex” for weightlifting, Synergee barbells still have the stiffness needed for heavy powerlifting, olympic lifting, body building and crushing CrossFit WODs. Each bar is tested for straightness and balance throughout the barbell. If you’re looking for expert level bars that can withstand impressive amounts of weight, this is your bar.
The knurling on a barbell is ground onto the bar by a specialized machine. The pattern features two sets of diagonal lines, each set going in the opposite direction, so that they form thousands of tiny little diamonds. These diamonds keep your hands from slipping, ensuring your comfort throughout your workout.
