1 Answer

A men's Olympic barbell is a metal bar that is 2.2 m (7.22 ft) long and weighs 20 kg (44.1 lbs).[4] The outer ends are 50 mm (1.9685 in) in diameter, while the grip section is 28 mm (1.1024 in) in diameter, and 1,310mm (51.57 in) in length

There's also "Thick" Olympic barbell sold that have a 2" to 3" diameter. Or you can purchase Fat Gripz that slide onto a regular olympic bar to thicken the grip.

A women's Olympic bar is similar to the men's bar, but is shorter - 2.05 m (6.73 ft) - and lighter - 15 kg ( 33.07 lbs) - with a smaller grip section diameter (25 mm).
