Oly lifts with a 32mm bar....

I got a 1500lb power bar that has a really nice spin on the sleves so I figured it would be decent for oly lifts as well (I got a great deal on the bar. I only paid about 90 bucks for it and 10 on dinner for the person that sold it to me lol)

1) The bar has a 32mm grip
2) No space for my shins (ouch!)

I'm not very good when it comes to oly lifts (decent, but not great)

I haven't used the bar yet to clean (I'm worried about snatching) but will in the next couple of days.

Anyone shun this idea for any kind of safety reasons? I'm not looking to become a stud in the oly lifts, just using them like most of us for general performance.

Just lookin' for some advice from you more experienced individuals with oly lifting.

Thank you in advance guys!
