    So, you've been a member for almost two years and waited until now to post? That seems strange...

    In that case, you'll be fine.

    The bench'll be fucked, though.

    (Actually, if I understand your question correctly, the answer is that no harm will come to you. A standard bench or rack can accommodate an Olympic bar just as easily as a standard bar. If your question is more complicated than that, send pics.)

    The problem with standard benches is that the uprights are usually right where one would put his hands whilst benching.
