The Benefits Of Thick Bar Training
There has recently been something of a re-discovery of thick bar training; a training style which Old-Time Strongmen knew all about and used to great effect but which has almost been forgotten in modern times.
In this article we will examine how thick bar training works why it is now used by bodybuilders NFL teams and Special Forces soldiers and why it can make a BIG difference to YOUR muscle and strength gains.
What Is Thick Bar Training?
If you are not familiar with thick bars they are simply barbells dumbbells and pull-up bars with a much thicker handle. A standard barbell dumbbell or pull-up bar typically has a handle with a diameter of about 1 inch. A thick bar will often have a diameter of more like 2.5 inches (some look more like truck axles) and if you have ever picked one up you will know that it feels completely different. A recent article contained a comment by a very experienced powerlifter who had recently switched to thick bars. He said: it was like picking up weights for the first time again. Many lifters report a similar experience. So thick bar training simply means using a thick barbell thick dumbbells and thick chin-up bar in your usual training program.
