I’m in the process of purchasing some equipment for a home setup.
There is an excellent package I’m looking at that has pretty much all I need.
My only sticking point is the bar has a grip diameter of 32 mm as opposed to the 28.5 mm that is standard - it is a decent bar, rated to 1500 lbs.
Would this be a huge issue? I’m guessing for squats and presses it would feel a bit nicer, but for deads and cleans it would be a bit stiffer.
My training is fairly basic, 5/3/1 main lifts and varying assistance, but mostly BB and DB presses and rows + chins.
Just wondering if the thicker bar will be that much of an issue, or if it will actually make me stronger when using a normal bar to deadlift because my grip is used to the thinner bar?
