What is an Ohio bar?

What is an Ohio bar?

The Ohio Bar is a hybrid bar made for powerlifting/weightlifting/CrossFit. It was never designed to whip for the Olympic lifts, so if you're looking for a bar to use exclusively for the classic lifts (snatch and clean and jerk), I would look at bars like the American Barbell Training Bar or the Eleiko IWF Training Bar.

Is a deadlift bar worth it?

Deadlift Bars Are Longer Overall than Stiff Bars The reason why deadlift bars are normally longer is that it allows the lifter to be able to pull more weight off the ground during the deadlift. It does this because the further the loaded weights are from the middle of the bar, the more it can make the barbell bend.
