8kg Aluminium Technique Barbell
Learning complex weightlifting moves has never been so simple!
Olympic Lifting is a serious sport. It requires a level of strength, flexibility and skill that most people will never quite get.
The problem has always been being able to learn the basics with a weight that is manageable. Typically you'd have to use a 20kg bar plus plates. If you're lucky enough to have a pair of our 2.5kg Iron Edge technique plates, you'd still be working with a 25kg bar weight. Not a huge weight I know, but when you're learning the intricacies of the snatch and the clean & jerk, it's a lot of weight for a rookie to be holding overhead.
This madness leads to injury and can make weightlifting a scary and intimidating sport. But here's a solution that can make learning weightlifting easy and safe for all.
The 8kg/6ft aluminium barbell is ideal for the budding weightlifter. Combine this bar with our 2.5kg technique plates and you've got the perfect combination for anyone starting out. You can learn the technique with as little as 13kg total weight.
If you're starting out with weightlifting or you teach others, then the 8kg/6ft aluminium barbell should be exactly what you're looking for.

With over 200,000 satisfied customers, Iron Edge is Australia's No.1 high performance strength training brand. We've been fitting out elite high performance gyms for the likes of Collingwood Football Club and the Australian Defence Forces for years. We know what you need and what you don't. Our products are constantly being tried, tested and improved to be the best they can be. And we stand behind them accordingly.
2. Product Range
Iron Edge has one of the biggest ranges of high performance training equipment available in Australia. From Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoes, through to kettlebells, Power Bands and weightlifting equipment. In all we stock 100’s of different products at our warehouse facility in Melbourne so you'll always be able to get what you want and, most importantly, when you need it. That's why Iron Edge is the choice of Australia's best athletes, coaches and gyms. And why anything else is just compromise.
At Iron Edge we employ experienced and qualified engineers to design, test and then source the best manufacturers of all our equipment. Up until 2017 we manufactured in-house, but market pressures forced us to move manufacturing overseas. However we weren’t going to compromise on the quality and structural integrity of our products, so after rigorous research, we’ve been able to partner with some of the industry’s best and most experienced equipment manufacturers. In many ways they are more advanced and sophisticated than our in-house work shop, so you can be assured that the quality of all our products meet the same high standards and are worthy of the Iron Edge brand.
When you promise 'serious training' you have to back it up. Fortunately we do, drawing on our extensive experience dealing with Australia's best coaches, athletes, sports scientists and exercise physiologists. It's enabled Iron Edge to be one of Australia's leading authorities in high performance strength training- and with an educational arm of the business comprised of over ten certified courses launching soon, we plan on increasing the industry standard across the board.
5. No 'BS' Guarantee
We don't just say our products are the best available. We back it up with an industry leading guarantee. That means if your Iron Edge equipment is faulty or fails to deliver on its promise we will replace it. Conditions do apply.
