I have been powerlifting for a couple years now(non competitive thus far so I’m not a “power lifter” but working on it) and I have worked out at a plethora of gyms with a wide variety of bars. I understand the difference between power bars, DL bars and OLY bars, etc. My question is regarding the DL and the ideal bars to use for different types of training. An example of what I’m trying to say is- stiffer bars can help strength by minimizing whip and getting accustomed to heavier weight through the full ROM. What I would like to know is if people DL with the OLY bar, if so, why and what benefits do you receive? Same thing with a power bar with moderate whip? Also, potential brands to look for at commercial gyms? This is kind of a hard question to put into words, but I appreciate any help!!
