The Best Short Barbells For Home Use

I don’t have a lot of space to work with in my home gym, which limits what I can do with a full size barbell. Thankfully several companies offer “shorty” Olympic bars, which are great for use in confined spaces.

Obviously tradeoffs have to be made to achieve the shorter length. However, a good compact barbell can still meet the needs of most home gym lifters.
