Hi everyone At my gym we have the Olly lifting section, complete with our awesome bars under lock and key. In another section we have the rest of the gym, which have the squat racks and bench. They also have terrible bars, at least half of them are bent to some capacity. I used to refuse to use these bars, which often meant I couldn't squat/bench when I had planned to, and would sub for front squat or press in the Olly room. However the other day I was watching a video series called 'so you think you can squat' and I noticed the main guy was squatting with a bar that was bent. So I was wondering... Is using a bent bar dangerous?
