What is the difference between the Bow Classic and Steel Bow?
A common question we receive is what is the difference between the Bow Classic and Steel Bow? This is a great question and certainly relevant when you are purchasing a Bullworker.
One main difference between the Bow Classic and Steel Bow and the most obvious is the length. The Bow Classic named after the original Bullworker is the same size coming in at 36 inches. The Steel Bow is a shorter version of a Bullworker at 20 inches. We will go into more detail below on how these different lengths specialize in your fitness training.
Barbell vs. Dumbbell
An easy way to remember and one way to help visualize the difference is we like to think of the Bow Classic as the Bullworker barbell and the Steel Bow as the Bullworker dumbbell. The barbell tends to be used for heavier Olympic lifts while the dumbbell can be used for muscle targeting and gives you more movement capabilities.
The Bow Classic
The Bow Classic, the Bullworker barbell, specializes in more range of motion and resistance. This makes the Bow Classic a great fit for you if you are looking for exercising your legs, desire more resistance, or want more range of motion in your routine.
