Thick Bar Work


Recommended Posts


    I'm about to make a thick bar...i'd like to train with it once a week. What kind of routine should this be?? I want it to focus on grip..

From my own experience, using the thick bar, especially for pulling movements will work your grip (especially your thumb) and your wrists.  I have found that this a very humbling experience as you will have to lower your poundages temporarily in order to adjust to the wider grip.  I work out with a solid 7'cold rolled steel 2"diameter stock.  It works very well and I am using it twice a week.  You can't go wrong using this type of bar.  It will give you a stronger overall grip--not to mention what it will do for your overall body strength.  

Good Luck--Rockblaster
