Introducing the first barbell made just for kids, the OSO Barbell Mini. We recently discovered this barbell online and we had to share. This barbell, made by the OSO Barbell Collars company, is a light weight, aluminum barbell, made to bare weight. It is specifically designed for kids, and is the first of its kind.
What’s makes this barbell so special you ask? To start with this bar is only 5lbs. That is significantly lighter (almost 20lbs lighter) then the only other junior training bar on the market, the 10KG. It is also shorter than the 10KG bar by about 18inches, making it a significantly better fit then for those smaller, 7 and 8 year-old athletes who really just need a barbell in order to start working on their basic technique.
What really puts the icing on the cake to, is that the OSO Barbell Mini goes for around $100, making it also the less expensive than the 10KG and 15lb aluminum training bar alternatives. For more information, you can check out the OSO mini on their website www.osobarbellcollars.com or on their social media site, through Instagram at OSO_barbell.
