Wrist Curl Question


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if wrist curl performance is effected by using a straight bar, as opposed to an olympic bar? I wouldn't think that rotating sleeves would affect the amount of weight one could curl. If no advantage is gained, I'd like to allow the use of a straight bar in the GGBash III.

An olympic bar is easier because of the rotation.

If an exercise bar is used and the plates locked down tightly, it is

more difficult to begin the rep, but once momentum gets going it

becomes easier to complete the rep.

The the grip board rules an olumpic bar must be used in order to

qualify in the 200, 250, or 300 class.

Thanks Joe. Since the olympic bar is easier, I'll allow the use of a fixed bar in the GG Bash III.
