Cool Stuff Seen at the Gym:



Big shipment of Okie bars arrived today... if I counted properly, 3 squat bars, 4 power bars, and 3 deadlift bars. Only used the power bar so far... knurling isn't as sharp as the Texas power bars.

I actually had no idea there was a difference between deadlift, squat and power bars.

Can you explain what it is?
post #39393 of 57263
squat: thicker, knurling covering almost the entire bar, longer to accommodate more plates, weighs 25kg/55lbs
power: stiff, has center knurling... basically good all around bar. used for benching in competition. standard 20kg/45lbs
deadlift bar: whippy (can pull up quite a bit before the plates come off the ground), no center knurling, longer to accommodate wide sumo stance. standard 20kg/45lbs

That's basically it. Someone like Charly can correct/append I'm sure. Dunno about the Okie bars, but the Texas power and deadlift bars have deep and sharp as fuck knurling.

Wonder if you can preoder them.

You can order them from Russia right now for the great price of 450 USD

Whippy bar is cheating for deadlifts

That's like 1/3 the cost of geobaskets, what a steal!

Man, that's awesome.

I had to buy my own Texas DL bar to store at my gym (for only me and two other guys to use).

The Okie DL bars are nice too. Very similar. Haven't tried out their squat and power bars though but I'm pretty sure they're top notch too.

Jealous :P

Also, who wants my Rogue Dowins? Will fit a size 10 (give or take a half size).

Literally lolled at least 5 times watching this.

Ridiculous and funny in so many ways.

I think Rip gets a lot of shit because he's out there so much, and also because he acts like such an authority on the subject. Granted, he is an authority, and I totally understand why he's so convinced he's 100% correct on everything - that's what happens when you dedicate so much of your life to something - but I also get the hate.
 

 

This, plus that there is a huge difference between starting strength: the book and starting strength: the program as described by the internet.

LMAOOOOOOOO! Dude entered uncharted territory

All jokes aside I think if Jeff Seid offered his angus to this dude he would not pass on the opportunity.
