Different bars for lifting

Devin 3 years ago in Workouts updated 3 years ago 2

Are there different types of barbells that should be used for specific movements (ie: squats, deadlifts, bench press etc)? If so, what are the benefits to using a barbell designed for a specific movement? Thank you

The only bar benefit I see is a Chicago Bar (or Ohio Bar) for deadlifts due to the slack. Other than that, meh.

Just watched the Q&A #11 on YouTube. Thank you for answering my question and sorry to Steve for causing him to be called out about bending every bar at Tiger Fitness HQ. :)
