Overview

As an entry level Olympic Bar, the BLK BOX Utility Bar is the ideal choice for beginners. A popular choice amongst athletes and facilities looking for versatility and value, this bar can be used to execute both weightlifting and powerlifting movements such as squats, bench pressing, deadlifts and jerks.  

 

The BLK BOX Utility Bar – 15kg is made with a 25mm shaft, and IWF standard for 15kg bars, with one roller bearing and one bronze bushing per sleeve, offering a good spin. The 180 kPSI offers a good whip, and its hardened chrome finish a high level of corrosion resistance while allowing the athlete to feel medium knurl. While dual IPF and IWF knurl markings allow consistent hand placement whether performing weightlifting or powerlifting movements, and the addition of a centre knurl ensures greater control during squats or similar movements.   

 

Use the Utility Bar for both weightlifting and powerlifting depending on your training routine. Whatever your plans, the 360° Barbell Brush can help you to keep your barbell in pristine condition. It’s available with either nylon or stainless steel bristles to keep the Utility Bar free from both chalk and dirt.
