Today we are discussing the Best EZ curl bar to buy in India from Bullrock Fitness, the most premium in quality, of course also the most expensive over-the-top option that's available, in their barbell lineup of over 15 barbells. 😀
This EZ curl bar is special because it is avilable in complete chrome coating. That means not only is the shaft completely built of chrome coating/ finishing but so are the sleeves, something that up until a couple of years ago wasn’t really anybody did in an Olympic bar, let alone in an EZ curl bar.
This is my favorite curl bar in India that’s on the market not only because it’s chrome on both the shaft and sleeves but also because the 1.2mm diamond knurl provides a good and solid grip at a price no one offers.
Everything about it is just nice.❤️
👉 In this Bullrock best EZ curl bar in India review, I’ll go over all of the bar’s specifications, talk about how it feels and performs, and compare it to other curl bars along the way.

A Champion’s Guide On How To Choose Best Barbell For Home Gym India
To understand which is best, curl bar vs straight bar first we have to know what the biceps actually do?
There are two main functions of the biceps but a lot of us only seem to remember one of them is the flexing of the forearm.
That’s why every bicep curl involves this motion, but what’s the other thing that the biceps do well? ⬇️
👉 They actually help supinate the forearm.
So if we take this information and apply it to other exercises it’s very easy to see that when utilizing an exercise like a barbell bicep curl you’re not only flexing the elbow joint to perform the movement but your arms are stuck in the supinated position which means we’re getting maximum bicep engagement throughout the entire range of motion.
And when you use an EZ curl bar, because the EZ curl bar obviously has the different grooves in it, it allows us to grab the barbell in such a way that our hands can be slightly turned inwards.
👉 This way you’re sacrificing one of the main movements that the bicep does which is the supination of the forearms.
➡️ Then why do people go for this exercise?
Well, the main reason is that some people have too much tightness in their wrists that it starts to hurt keeping their hands supinated the entire time and the EZ curl bar can help alleviate that pain.
My suggestion to you: If you don’t have wrist pain and you can handle doing straight bicep curls there’s no need to incorporate both into your routine. Stick with the one that gets the most biceps engagement which is the straight bar.
⬇️ However if you start to get pain in your wrist I recommend utilizing the EZ curl bar while working on your flexibility and then once your flexibility gets to a point where you can handle the straight bar switch over to that.
🔊 It helps take some of the stress off your wrists and elbows and as part of that, you can do it for bicep curls, for triceps, or whatever other freaky exercises you want to get.
Let me go over some of the specs.
The diameter on the shaft is 28 millimeters which is 1 millimeter less than most power bars and similar to most general-purpose or weight lifting bars. It’s a good size. It feels good in the hand.
The weight is 10 kgs in total which makes it an Olympic size utility bar.
➡️ Now this particular bullrock EZ curl bar is a Chrome coating bar.
Oh, they also offer Black oxide, Black ceramic coating options but personally, I find that black oxide tends to not do so well in the basement gym so I would have preferred a chrome finish.
But depending on what you want, when you get the bar you can pick and choose as you’re buying it.
✔️ Black oxide is commonly used as a finish when price and grip security are more important than oxidation resistance. Black oxide has a natural, gripping feel to it, similar to bare steel bars, but it provides very little rust protection. It feels fantastic, but it will necessitate some maintenance.
Choose accordingly. 😀
There are no cerakote options in this currently though which is kind of okay in my opinion because even though cerakote is cool.
But when you’re talking about a curl bar you probably don’t want to spend a ton of money on it because it’s probably not something that you’re going to use all the time.
Unless of course, you do bicep curls every day.
This EZ curl bar in India uses 2 bronze bushings + 2 bearings which are nice, so you do get some smooth spin on the actual collars. This gives it really a tremendous spin.
Honestly more spin than anybody would ever need in a curl bar however it feels good when you’re curling because it keeps the weight from spinning and not fixed so you’re not having to like to overcome the gravity of it.
👉 It is actually rated for like 45K PSI which is pretty amazing considering that you can’t really fit 300 pounds/ 136 kg on how short these collars and sleeves are, but I guess it’s nice and tells you that the bar is very well made. 😍
As far as the quality goes it’s got a good grip as you can tell I haven’t dropped it yet.
Although I’m starting to get out of breath as I mentioned it is bent so you can do a normal grip or you can go even wide grip the bar itself is kind of short in my opinion too.
Not only do they have short sleeves (a little over 6.69 inches) but the total bar length is about 1200 mm/ 47 inches which means if you go for the narrow grip it puts a little bit of awkward feeling on my wrists but that’s not something I would probably do because I like a little bit of a wider grip myself.
Some people say that’s actually average but when it comes to EZ curl bars I find that’s a little bit short of the bar itself.
This Bullrock EZ curl bar in India retails for about Rs 7265 on Amazon for the chrome version or if you want the black oxide it’s about Rs 8494 range which is again in line with most other easy curl bars as I see online. ❤️
If you’re short on budget you can go ahead and get a heavy-duty version from LEEWAY curl bar which has better finishes it’s sleeves are longer (7.5 inches vs 6.6 inches only) that’s gonna cost you like Rs 4000 only, which for most people isn’t just something that you want to spend because again it’s an EZ curl bar and depending on how you’re training.
As for me, I am not going to use it that often because I do weightlifting movements but it’s a fairly good bar for the price. 😍
➡️ Then one thing I will say about the design of Bullrock EZ curl bar is that I do like is the fact that in the middle it’s kind of pointed up so when I do skull Crushers I’m still gonna keep on curling.
It actually kind of fits nicely right on your skull.
Instead of where most EZ curl bars have a straight bar (no camber) in the middle, but again the downside is I do think it makes the narrow grip even more narrow than what you typically see.

If you’re confused between bullrock EZ curl bar vs straight bar, which to buy?
Refer to this comparison infographic below.
➡️ In my opinion, Bullrock best EZ curl bar in India is a better overall curl bar than any other bar on amazon and it’s also using an awesome knurl pattern. Not passive or anything which slips from hands.
Everything about them is nice.
You can get this one in either a black oxide coating for Rs 8949, In comparison LEEWAY black powder-coated bars are like Rs 4000 cheaper and the shipping is all included, but mind it is of inferior quality and also their description is misleading.
So for most people that are wanting a premium curl bar if you’re gonna spend that much I would say Bullrock fitness is actually superior.
However, if you’re going to go with something and you want more budget-friendly, the LEEWAY chrome curl bar option is great because it’s not going to rust as quickly. Although that doesn’t mean it’s not going to rust at all.
The Bullrock best EZ Curl Bar is roughly 10 kg unloaded, which is a good starting weight. Many of the cheap EZ curl bars have crazy weights, requiring us to use 3rd grade maths to calculate totals.
The EZ curl bar isolates your triceps and biceps, allowing you to work on those muscles more intensely. The bar’s multiple angled grips safeguard your elbows and wrists from the joint damage that heavy arm workouts can cause. Anyone who wants to focus on arm growth/ size should invest in a best EZ curl bar.
Start the exercise by elevating your hands slightly to feel your biceps engage.
Keep your chest high and your elbows tight to your sides. Curl the EZ curl bar up to shoulder height while keeping tension in your biceps, then squeeze them for a second.
Return the weight gradually to the starting position, while maintaining your biceps stiff and engaged to recruit as many muscle fibres as you can.
The benefit to using a rackable EZ curl bar is you can do other things and go heavier that maybe you can’t ordinarily do with a normal EZ curl bar, so for instance if you want to do curls you can put it in the rack this makes it easy you just put it up on the j-hooks.
I think a rackable curl bar is vastly superior to a shorter EZ curl bar for most home gym owners because most home gym owners aren’t using a preacher curl bench. They’re just going to use their normal squat rack.
