Broken barbells

by Carl Brewer last modified 2009-07-26 00:05


I was just doing some warmup weighs before heading out to DISC this arvo, a set of warmup squats (12x20, 8 x 60, 5 x 100, 2 x 150kg) and then some power cleans.  My PC's are pretty feeble, I was only doing 6 x 60k, anyway, at the end of them I always check the retaining nuts on the end of my barbell, it sometimes comes loose when dropped.  One of them was looser than normal, hrm.  Tighten it with the 12mm allen key .. oh noes .. it's stripped!  No more weights today.  I'll either have to fix it, which isn't that hard to do if I can find the right tap and die set, or replace it.  I need another bar anyway, so I think I'll replace it.  Have to get it by Tuesday though, so we can do our lifting on time.
