Hi I train at home with a 7ft one inch barbell. How much weight can this bar hold. I can’t seem to get an answer out of anybody, except for companies like york who state such bars are designed to take 100kg! (but is this just them covering themselves for safety limits?). If not then can someone please let me know because I’m loading the bar with 170kg for 20 rep deadlifts and am about to pile on considerably more weights for a lower rep scheme - is this a silly idea - should I ditch the bar and go for the expense of an olympic set?
