Dr Ken Leistner mulls over the question asked decades ago in a Weider publication: "Does one need to use an Olympic bar for the three power lifts?" This article and the follow up are an excellent consideration of the factors that have contributed to the eclipse of a regular (or "standard") bar in favor of the so-called Olympic bar (i.e. with 50mm sleeves).
Recommended Collars: Inside: CIS-2-1/2 or C-1/4; Outside: COS-2-1/2, C-2, C-3/CC-3. (In addition, CL-1/4 or C-2 are equally acceptable outside collars).
Chemical analysis of this bar is specified by IVANKO engineers and made to our specifications direct at a precision steel mill -- subject, of course, to our final testing and approval. Because of the time and research devoted to the development of this product, exact bar chemistry is not offered as consumer knowledge.
