I bought a new olympic weight set the other day that came with a 7' bar. I had another older/shorter bar that I was using but didn't have enough weight so I bought a new set. I completely forgot about the size difference, needless to say my old weights don't fit on the new bar. The main reason I got more weight is because I wanted to start doing heavier deadifts, but this 7' bar seems pretty damn big for that. Does anyone use a 7' bar for deadlifts or should it be kept on the bench/squat rack? Should I just go out and try to find a 5' olympic bar and use that for deadlifts instead?
