This highly useful piece of gym equipment comes in a variety of different sizes and shapes allowing you to fit the appropiate sized olympic weights onto it. So before you jump in and buy the first one that you see, you need to first find out what size olympic weight plates you own and how many. Once you have got this information you are now ready to go out and buy one.
