EZ bars can be considered to be a variation of the ordinary barbells with the bars twisted, bent and curved in order to provide more support to the palms. When in a curling position, the curviness of the EZ curl bar ensures that the palms are in their natural position rather than being upward as is the case with typical barbells. They are normally used by bodybuilders for bicep exercises which involve curling as such exercises are not as painful with EZ bars as they are with typical barbells.
When it comes to using EZ bars for exercising, most bodybuilders like to know “how much does an EZ bar weigh?” and “how much does a curl bar weigh?” Let’s find out!
How Much Does an EZ Bar Weigh?
There are two variations of the EZ bars:
Standard EZ Curl Bar
The standard EZ bar is lesser in weight as compared to the typical barbell. So, how much does an EZ bar weigh? Well, the standard EZ bar weighs around 10 pounds while the straight barbell weighs around 15 pounds.
Olympic EZ Curl Bar/Revolving Curl Bar
Olympic EZ Curl bar or revolving curl bar weighs more than a standard curl bar. So, how much does an EZ curl bar weigh (Olympic)? It weighs around 25 pounds. This is because they are longer and have a sleeve and a bearing assembly. Still, they aren’t as heavy as a typical Olympic barbell which weighs between 35 to 45 pounds.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money into buying Olympic EZ curl bar unless you want to curl weight of more than 100 pounds.
