Body bars are iron bars covered in foam rubber, making them a friendlier (and lighter weight) alternative to standard barbells. “These bars allow users to perform all types of barbell exercises with weight that can be easy to use for beginners,” says McCall.
What weight body bar should I use?
Generally, beginners should start with a three- or six-pound bar. Once you’ve reached a more intermediate level, try a nine- or 12-pound bar, working toward advanced training with 24-, 30- and 36-pound options.
