Get Into Lifting – Barbell and Plates Starter Package
The barbell and plates starter package contains everything you need to get lifting now!
Withing this you’ll find a 6ft Northern Lite Chrome bar, a pair of 5kg and 1.25kg plates, and a pair of collars to keep it all on!
This is ideal if you’re just setting up your home gym, starting out on your fitness journey, with plenty of room to grow.
Northern Lite barbells come with needle bearings for good whip as you progress to Olympic lifting, gentle yet effective knurling, capable of handling 500kgs of weight and built to last.
For best practice, avoid dropping the bar on its own or with 5kg plates on, as this can damage the bearings and plates. As you progress, heavier plates can be safely dropped without damage. Make sure to use on suitable floor if the bar may be dropped – we recommend a high density rubber mat for best protection of both your floor and equipment.
Northern plates are solid, virgin rubber plates, with Northern branding across the 5kg plates, and coloured change plates for easy identification. They’re built to last!
Last but not least, the collars. Northern bars are designed to hold the plates on by default, but the collars help to lock everything in place.
