How many barbells do I need?

If you’re looking for a versatile lifting barbell for your home gym or for functional fitness workouts, this bar is more than just a solid choice. The Bastard Hybrid Bar – pardon our French – says it all, but in a positive way. This bar combines features of your favourite bars of powerlifting and weightlifting. Flexibility for olympic lifts, but enough stiffness for maximal strength lifts like squats, bench, and deadlift. 

The trick here is, you’ll get two barbells in one

The barbell has dual markings; of the powerlifting bar and an olympic weightlifting barbell, for an easy set-up as you are used to, with your more specific training barbell. You’re looking at a standardized Olympic barbell of 220cm length but without centre knurling. The absence of a centre knurling is quite convenient for exercises held in the front rack position as well as Oly lifts in general, as neither skin nor clothing can be damaged by a knurling brushing past. Made of sprung steel with a black nickel phosphorus coating and chromed sleeves, this bar has a great durability along with the aesthetics. Three needle bearings and one brass bushing in each sleeve will provide just the right amount of spin for this hybrid bar. The sprung steel shaft delivers enough whip in dynamic lifts, and is made for flexibility in strength.

The 0.3mm deep knurling is sharp enough for heavy attempts but will be easy on your hands in high repping workouts.

For lifting safely, we recommend using a collar with our bar. These red Olympic Riot Collars perfectly match this barbell, while keeping your plates tight on the bar.

One Bar With and One Bar Without Center Knurling

We bought two bastard hybrid bars last February. My wife uses the bar without center knurling and I use the one with center knurling. Both bars are great for squat, bench press, overhead press, deadlift, landmine exercises, and barbell complexes. The price permitted us to buy two quality bars for the price of one, which allows us to work on opposite sides of the power rack without having to change plates or worry about "J" Hook height. The knurling is more than adequate and not ridiculously aggressive. The bars get used about five days a week and they still look like the day they arrived. We recommend these bars to anyone starting a home gym.
