Olympic Weight Bar 5ft 1500mm | 9.4kg
Test your absolute strength with the RPM Power Olympic Barbell
An Olympic barbell without any plates on it is already a useful weight in and of itself and is a basic requirement for some of the best and more powerful exercises, such as deadlifts, squats and presses. Barbells, like other free weights, are much better than the machines at the gym because of the stabilization and coordination aspects they bring to your workouts - use more muscle groups as you balance and lift.
To answer your question it all depends on your current bodyweight/muscle mass: So if we were to take someone weighing in at 80kg we would take that number and multiply it by the given numbers down below, giving you your 1 rep max for your bench, squat and shoulder press. Through this you can decide/narrow down which plate set/bundle would be best suited for you.
Person weighing 80kg
Bench 1 Rep Max = 45kg (.56 x bodyweight)
Squat 1 Rep Max = 65kg (.81 x bodyweight)
Shoulder Press 1 Rep Max = 35kg (.44 x bodyweight)
Yes the plates are available bundles/sets. Here are the available sets for purchase:
'60KG Bumper Plate Set' = 2 x 5kg, 2 x10kg, 2 x 15kg
'100KG Bumper Plate Set' = 2 x 5kg, 2 x10kg, 2 x 15kg, 2 x 20kg
'150kg Bumper Plate Set' = 2 x 5kg, 2 x 10kg, 2 x 15kg, 2 x 20kg, 2 x 25kg
The recommended set/bundle for the person mentioned above would be the 100kg bundle, as it gives plenty of possibilities for progression and will challenge the individual.
