Detailed Review of the York Spinlock Bar
We all need a barbell – and the York Spinlock bar is a solid basic bar at a reasonable price. This locks with spinning nuts. When you order you will get a choice of 2 lengths (the price is the same for either 5 feet or 6). This barbell is chrome plated, so it will not become tarnished quickly. The maximum load is 125kgs – plenty enough for most of us. If you are lifting above this you’ll probably already have moved over to pro-level weight training equipment. I see this as a ‘basic’ for home strength training, and based on the reputation of York Fitness – you really won’t be able to go far wrong for the very reasonable price.
When you see the amazon.co.uk product page, you will see that there is a ‘frequently bought together’ section. This lists the weights which go with this bar, along with some benches. You’ll be saving some money by getting these together at amazon – and you’ll also save yourself a lot of effort in getting them home due to the delivery options! You can find out more about the benches available in my Weight Benches and Accessories Reviews page.
This bar comes bubble wrapped and in a box.
