Does anyone know how far apart the power rings are on a standard bar? At my home gym I have a 7'2" bar and the rings are 3' apart. I went to another gym and the rings felt on the bar felt like they were closer. Just wondering.

Maybe it varies by federation, but in the APF/AAPF its 81 cm. I specifically asked back when I was benching as wide as possible.

or maybe the inside of the ring is 81cm and the outside is 83cm?

I thought the grip was narrow; I'll have to adjust my grip.
