The barbell is a classic bodybuilding and strength training tool for gaining muscle mass. The presence of a barbell and a set of weights allows you to perform many different exercises for all muscle groups of the body – without machines and other equipment.

Powerlifting is a competitive strength sport that involves three main lifts: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift.
