I'm not super-strong, and don't imagine I ever will be, but I do want to get stronger than I am, and do it gradually with a lot of stability strength, too. I think using a light bar like this for strict OH presses, bench pressing, OHS, etc.., as a daily routine would be a huge benefit. Given that, I think just a fiberglass tube, with some rings cut from a slightly larger tube, glued to create slots for the bands, is my ticket. Only question is, I have fairly large hands, I'm wondering if doing a 1.5" tube for the main section is the way to go? Would add a little grip workout, too?
1.5" is probably ideal. I have a 2" PVC pipe and you get a incredible forearm pump when benching with it.
