DIY BARBELLEGE GEAR
How to build your own barbell: How to build your own barbell is a very interesting topic. There are many different opinions about it. Some say that it’s not necessary, but others think that it’s essential for building strong and powerful body. If you want to build stronger and bigger muscles then you need to have barbells in order to do so.
You might ask yourself why would I want my body strengthened?
Well, if you’re a man, then you probably want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger or even Mike Tyson. If you’re a woman, then you might just want to look like Angelina Jolie!
Barbells are great for building muscle because they provide a good amount of weight without putting too much strain on your joints. They’re also great for building strength because they require less effort than other types of exercises such as squats and deadlifts. Barbells are also great for developing power since they require little energy from your body.
However, there are some downsides to using barbells. First off, they’re heavy! A standard dumbell press uses between 25 and 30 pounds of force when you use it with a 10 pound plate. A normal barbell requires at least 50 pounds of force when used with a 10 pound plate.
This doesn’t seem like a lot, but over time it really adds up. I started out with a 135 pound barbell set and it took me at least an hour to be able to pick it up off the ground. I’ve since upgraded to a 150 pound set and it still takes me at least an hour to be able to lift it from the ground. That’s already over a quarter of a ton of force, and that’s just to press the bar straight up!
Now, if you used the entire weight of a loaded barbell with plates on each side, you’d already be using nearly a half ton of weight to perform an exercise. While this might seem impressive, it’s actually very hard on your muscles and joints. This means that you need to have a spotter help you, or you’ll have to wait around for someone to be around to help you. This severely limits your ability to work out when you have a busy schedule.
Another negative aspect of barbell training is the lack of variety. If you rely only on barbells, then you’re going to get very bored with your routine since it’s extremely repetitive. They weren’t designed to lift this much weight, so you need to be very careful when you use barbells. Always make sure that you lift safely and that you don’t just go all macho on heavy weights.
You can severely injure yourself if you do!
Barbell equipment usually consists of the barbell itself, with the weight plates on each side. The width and diameter is constant for each bar and the diameter of the outside of the plates is also standard. You’ll also find that there are some limitations with barbells. For example, if you want to work on your biceps, then you need to curl the bar.
If you want to work on your triceps, then you need to press it. You can’t use barbells to exercise one arm at a time, which would allow you to focus on one particular limb. The number of plates you buy is going to determine how heavy your barbell is. For a man, you want to buy either a 45 or a 50 pound barbell for your home gym. For a woman, you want a women’s Olympic set with either two 25’s or two 20’s. If you’re looking to save money, then you can buy the cheap hexagonal plates, but they bend easier and make odd noises when dropped on the ground (a pet peeve of mine). Barbells are also fixed, so you can’t make adjustments without adding or removing plates.
I’d say that barbells are good for those who want to get big and strong, but don’t have a lot of time to lift. They’re also good if you don’t have anyone to help you and need that extra bit of weight. If you have the time and are able to find someone to spot you, then I’d recommend using dumbells over barbells. Barbells are also a little harder on your joints.
However, if you want to get really strong and big as fast as possible, then barbells are the way to go. You could probably get a cheap gym membership somewhere or join a college weight room to take advantage of the free weights they have so you don’t have to buy anything.
