    Olympic vs standard body interactions

    Never really got a chance to work with them as I just picked up an olympic bar & plates(Rep sabre/cast irons) a few days ago, but I kinda noticed something. The bar feels just massive compared to my other standard. So I put 30lb added onto my standard, compared it to the olympic just as it is(it's a 44 pounder), and honestly it feels like the olympic is still many pounds heavier. Like what's up with this, why is it? Do olympics feel bigger from the start because of increased shaft and sleeve diameters, moving parts, or what? Where do you start with these things if say a lift you do on standard you can handle around 115-135? Should you subtract starting weight from your standard lift to be on the safe side? Also, do olympics tax the muscle more? I heard a claim that someone who was using olympic got better results from it, vs their old standard bar and handles. Does this hold any truth?

    It's just what your motor pathways are trained for. Using different equipment can change it enough so that you feel weaker. You will adapt pretty quickly if you use it every day though.

    If the weight isn't heavier then the resistance is no different in principle (barring movements like rotation around a vertical axis - where a longer bar has higher polar moment of intertia).

    If you have small hands I'd expect deadlifts and variations to feel harder.

    By contrast you should have a much better bench press with a thicker more solid bar.

    I don't imagine there is much difference besides what you are used too as SP pointed out.
    I would struggle to squat and bench as much going back to a non power bar, and especially a standard bar as the whip and spin would be off putting

    Oh yeah? Sweet, I was always having trouble with those, cause my 25mm standard was actually ripping up my hands more, despite a real mellow knurl. It got to where I was using gloves not just to grip better, but to add width to the diameter and wouldn't have to wrap my palm around carefully before lifts.

    You can start just using the bar for exercises.
    It may be slightly larger in diameter than the standard bar which may work the grip a little more.
    The oly bar was originally used for olympic lifts.
    You can load it up with more weight easier than the standard bar.
    You don't subtract the weight start with the bar most olds are 20kg(44 pounds) or 45 lbs.
    Do make it complicated just get to training.
