Durable Enough for Gym Use, Designed for Home Use
If you’ve ever known the frustration of not finding the right equipment at your public gym, you can appreciate the benefits of having a well-appointed home gym. Marcy understands that. Just because you work out at home doesn’t mean that you should have to sacrifice functionality or features on your home gym equipment.
Marcy's weightlifting accessories are constructed with high-quality materials such as solid steel and rust resistant chrome finishes. With Marcy, you’ll not only find the accessories you need at affordable prices, you’ll get durable, high-quality equipment that will look just as good in your home gym years from now as it does today.
The Benefits of Weight Training
To many, weightlifting may seem like something only the pros or experienced lifters should attempt. However, studies show us that nothing could be further from the truth. Not only does adding weight resistance training tone and increase muscle mass, weightlifting helps improve bone density and increases your functional strength, making it easier to perform daily activities. Training with a weight bar can kick start fat loss and increase lean body mass as well as improve the condition of the connective tissue, muscles, and tendons.
Marcy offers a variety of weight bars for the home lifter. Standard 6’ weight bars are a great choice for strengthening your lower body as well as your arms. Add a weight bar to your lunges, and squats for a lower body workout that also increases stability and improves balance.
Standard Barbells vs. Curl Bars
Besides the obvious difference in shape, standard barbells and curl bars differ in weight, with curl bars typically being less heavy, as well as hand positioning. While standard barbells allow for over or underhand grips, curl bars allow for a more natural grip where your wrists are angled in either a supine or pronated position. Because of the angle of a curl bar, the curl bar isolates and intensifies your curls. Combine your curl bar with a preacher curl pad for maximum isolation.
If you're still confused about whether you should use a standard barbell or a curl bar, just remember that standard barbells work larger muscle groups such as the legs and chest, while curl bars are better suited for smaller muscle groups such as the biceps and triceps (tricep extensions.) Marcy barbells and weight plates can be purchased separately or as a barbell set. Barbell sets come standard with barbell, or curl bar, weight plates, and spring clip collars.
With a heavier weight capacity and wider length, Olympic barbells are the choice for those wishing to increase their load or lift competitively. The SteelBody Olympic Barbell is 7 ft. In length, weighs 45 lbs., and can hold up to 1650 lbs of Olympic plates (which meets IWF standards.) The knurled hand grips on the bar give lifters a better grip.
This wider, longer barbell accommodate Olympic weight plates, and best suited for power lifters, and those who aspire to compete in weight lifting events. The precision thrust bearings in the bar sleeve reduces torque making completing lifts such as power clean, clean & jerks, and snatches easier to rotate.
Marcy offers a complete line of safety accessories including lockjaw collars, spring clip collars, and weight plate collars to complement our standard or Olympic barbells. Made of high-quality steel, Marcy’s clamps and collars will fit tightly without slippage. The Marcy Barbell Pad (bar pad / squat sponge) will protect your neck when squatting with your Olympic Bar.
