The lighter weight and shorter length make these bars less intimidating for students to learn Olympic-style and power lifts. Both bars accept standard bumper plates to allow for correct starting positions and full lifts while keeping the load light. Light knurling helps inexperienced users condition their hands for more aggressive knurling on standard bars.
