    Re: Olympic bars

    deadlift bars are generally thinner, for better grip arround the bar...
    not so sure about the bench bars used in comps as that is definately not my specialty, but if i remember right they were thicker than the DL bar...

    Didn't know they were thicker for certain lifts. I though different companies just used different DIAs.
