This bar is ideal for wide grip/close grip lateral raises as the grip is angled. Bicep curls & bicep 21s are easier done with bar too.
Just a little bit too short when using with my bench press as I have to have my squat stands a bit too close for comfort.
Went into Decathlon while in Southampton just to have a look around. Saw this 1" EZ bar and bought it. When I got home went to put my 1" plates on it only to find they don't fit!!! Why? Because the diameter of the bar is 1.102" meaning you can only use the weight plates decathlon sell. The exact diameter of the bar is not stated anywhere nor are there any warnings that you can only use the weights they sell in store with it. This is an ABSOLUTE CON as far as I'm concerned.
