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. I’ve bought and tested every short barbell from every major manufacturer to find the absolute best options for a home gym with limited space.
