    Deadlift bars

    Just chasing options on deadlift bars. I plan to compete in GPC and turns out someone wants to buy me a barbell. Who's used both Okie and Texas bars. Why would you buy one over the other? Cheers.

    I need some general advice on knees... I have started running to get a bit of fitness in addition to my strength training. I also thought I'd like to give tough mudder a crack. Trouble is, my left knee gets so painful...it's probably a combination of past football, and me being rather heavy...
