Our Junior barbell is UK designed, engineered and manufactured at the Bulldog Gear Factory in Staffordshire.
Benefits of a 10kg barbell
The unique design of our 10kg Junior Barbell is perfect for the younger lifter or for someone who is just getting started in weightlifting. It offers a lower weight for drills and training without being as intimidating as heavier training bars.
The lighter barbell offers the true "feel" of a movement, often lacking in drill alternatives such as a PVC pipe. It's a great transitional piece of equipment for those just getting started and for more experienced lifters to refine lifting technique.
The Junior Barbell weighs half of the men's barbell and 5kg less than the women's, but is manufactured with the same precision and high standards.
Extensive in house development has allowed us to create a balanced knurl. It is not overly aggressive, designed to prevent your hand ripping with repetitive lifting, but not so passive that you will lose grip with high volume cleans and deadlift – the perfect equilibrium.
