Re: DHS Training Bar

Hi Tom Nguyen and Trung Nguyen. Here's a little info I got from Bud Charniga of Dynamic-eleiko/Dynamicfitnessequipment.
The DHS-USA.com is an old website was made by Todd Lyons, who runs Dynamic-eleiko/Dynamicfitnessequipment on the West Coast. That website is pretty much no longer functional(phone number and email). Disregard any of those sweet prices you saw. Too bad.
Anyway, the price on their current website is still very good. Also cheers to Bud for responding to my email on a Sunday.

Thanks Ryan

Thanx. That explains the similarity between the 2 websites.

Now I have to reconsider whether I really need a dedicated OLY bar for my home gym when already paying big bucks to go to a box...

Re: DHS Training Bar

Well, once you get used to lifting with a decent bar, you won't want to go back to just lifting with any old bar.

I only lifted with some decent bars for about a month and a half before a 3 month break. After that break, I couldn't tell what it was like going back to whatever run of the mill bars that CF gym had. During that initial month and a half, I could tell what it was like to go back to a standard Rogue bar and wasn't too thrilled about doing so.

So far, I can't tell too much of a difference between a 28mm and a 28.5mm bar but any bigger than 28.5 and I start noticing it. Our hands are probably roughly the same size those yours are probably a bit bigger than mine.

Re: DHS Training Bar

Thanks for this thread. I also think it might be my next big bar, cause I've always wanted an Eleiko, and if this is almost the same for 1/2 price....then bamn...done!
