Curl bars with 50mm ends to use normal Olympic plates.
Curl bars are shortened barbells with bends to create a more natural grip for doing biceps curls and other movements. Whether underhand or overhand grip is used. the curl bar generally generates less torque and strain on the wrist.
Plus if you are working out in a garage or home gym, the shortened length of the curl bar will make it more practical in a cramped space. You will not need as much clear space to work out.
Suggested exercises to do with the curl bar:
- Bent-over row (underhand and overhand)
- Shrugs behind the back
- Close-grip bench press
- Overhead triceps extension
- Lying triceps extension (a.k.a. skull crushers).
- Front raises
- Reverse grip curl (for forearm extensors)
- Underhand biceps curl
We have 2 curl bars to choose from: the regular EZ bar or the Super curl bar.
The Super curl bar is also nicknamed the W-bar. It has more pronounced curves to give you some different grips and angles to choose from.

60kg rating on our entry level model (if you can curl more than this you must have huge guns!). If you want to use it for deadlifts bent-over rows and/or close-grip bench press, please consider one of our stronger EZ curl bars.
Note the force exerted on the bar when dropped or bounced may be greater than the weight of the bar. Hence, bar should be rated for more the weight you intend to lift. Or better yet, don't drop the bar. Treat your equipment with respect.
Remember: biceps curls get the girls!
