Bought a new hex bar

Sat, 14 June 14

Hex bar deadlifts: 158x10, 248x5, 298x5, 328x5, 358x2x5, 408x3, 438x2, 458x1
Bench: 45x5, 135x5, 185x5, 215x5, 230x5, 245x5, 250x2, 255x1
Curls: 45x2x30

So, I bought a new hex bar this morning. I have always wanted one, but it was too expensive to get one locally. I saw there was a new shop in the area,  so I checked them out.  Picked up the bar for a song.  The bar weighs 68 lbs and is 86 inches long.  Well constructed.  The nurls weren't too hard on the hands,  but as things got heavier I put on my straps.   Managed to get an all time max lift which was a nice surprise.  My lifts have been pretty crappie lately.   Bench went nicely as well.

Here's me repping 358 with the bar.

Here's the single at 458.
