Re: Women's/beginners/training Barbell
I have a Rogue 45 lb bar that was cheap, and it has held up well.
I also have a York women's bar 33lb. Meh. it's just OK. Bumpers seem to catch on the ends and make it hard to get them on and off. Modest spin, OK for the few olympic lifts that I do.
I purchased the Pendlay Needle Bearing women's bar last year. It is awesome in every way. Spins like crazy, solid and feels good in my hands.
If I had to do all over again, I'd not purchase the York. I'd stick with Rogue or Pendlay.
