Powerlifting is considered a pure strength workout and sport, it’s very similar to Olympic weightlifting in the sense that the user adds has three attempts at each lift. However, they differ because powerlifting is focused on lifting as much weight as possible using a power bar.
Power bars are the most common type of barbell on the market. These barbells are approximately 7 feet long and are both rigid and stiff, unlike the Olympic bar. Power bars are considered a universal weightlifting bar and are used for performing presses, squats, and deadlifts. These bars are typically the type of weightlifting bar you’ll find in your gym.
Some common features of a power bar includes:
As mentioned previously, power bars are intended for what’s known as the “Big 3” in lifts – the bench press, back squat, and deadlift. Since high amounts of weight are required when performing these lifts, and the need to ensure there is no whip in the bar when performing them, the power bar is designed to be rigid and stiff.
