A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Barbell Shipping

When you guys buy a barbell online or from a store how is it normally shipped? Does it come open or does it come boxed up? I ordered a bar from Titan and it got delivered finally and it's just open to the elements and that doesn't seem right.
