thick bar??

is it just me or do you find the thick bar easier to hold than a regular one inch bar (with double overhand grip) i reckon its either because the smaller the bar the tighter you have to contract your hands or because the oly bar spins independantly to where the weights are and my scaf bar doesnt, any thoughts?

    I think it's cos you're 'ard!!

    I think the rotation could be a factor altho I can't say I've found the thicker bar any easier..... but I'm not allowed to use your scaf any more

    Hell no...my poundages take a humbling battering when I use my scaffold bar!

    (Just clean and jerked 190lbs on it though Apollon Wheel inspired, hardcore! ... Only well over 100 lbs to go...)

    it doesnt matter how tight i put the collars they still slide so im always wary of putting it above my head, i bet thats a tuff one compared to bb rows, deads etc, im sure i'll find a way to do it eventually

    I'm only using spring collars, so yeah it's a bit dodgy! Main concerns are actually not leaving it behind when doing the pull for the clean, and holding onto it on the way back down!

    Deads I found incredibly hard comparitively though.
