Our third installment of Building a Home Gym, we are touching on barbells. Barbells are an essential tool in building a home gym, and at Carolina Fitness Equipment, we have a variety of barbells to choose from. Here are some of those options:

One of our more popular bars in stock is the Minotaur Bar. This is a basic barbell with a weight capacity of about 6-700 lbs and is perfect for compound movements such as squats, barbell hip raises, deadlifts, incline bench press, and overhead press. Anyone who is beginning or starting weight training, this is the barbell of choice. It is a solid bar that won't break the bank and will be able to step up to whatever you can throw at it.

The Medusa bar is our midrange bar. This is the next step when you're looking for an all purpose barbell. What makes this bar great, is that it is perfect for compound or Olympic movement's and has a moderate knurl that prevents the barbell from slipping our of your hands or from on your back. The Medusa bar comes in a 15kg and 20kg bar, and also features bushing and ball bearing to ensure a nice spin.
