Standard Barbells (28mm)
One advantage of standard barbells is the cost. They are usually cheaper than Olympic weight sets and provide people with the same benefits. Any barbell can be used to increase muscle mass and strength, hence, the cheaper option may be more suitable for the average person. Another advantage of these barbells is that they take up less space. Most Olympic bars are 7 feet long while standard bars are usually 5- or 6-feet.
