hi, im going to purchase a thick bar today online, im not sure whether to get the 2inch or 2.5 inch. i just answered my question, the end of the olympic bar is 2 inches (plate loading ends)and that seems good for starting out with (am i correct is it 2inches diameter or did i measure wrong?)
so i'll ask another question, how many of you incorperate thick bar training? and how often? i just recieved my dinosaur training book (it rocks!!!!) and it seems they use thick bar all the time.
