The barbell (BB or BBell) is the predominant implement of weight training (along with dumbbells) composed of a length of steel bar affixed with circular weights of differing denominations (plates) on both ends. Typical barbells are approximately one inch to one-and-an-eighth inches in diameter and five to seven feet long. [1]
