Powerlifting Bars


#1

I recently joined a powerlifting gym and I noticed they had a deadlift bar. It was kinda weird very whippy even at 315, Are those kind of bars ipf approved?


#2

Did you check the rulebook?


#3

No. Whippy DL bars are not IPF approved.


#4

IPF use only one bar for all lifts. Other feds tend to use a specific squat, bench and DL bar.
