I finally bought an Olympic size bench for my house, but I'm cramped for room and can't fit a full size bar. I was hoping to find a good 5' bar, but all I've seen so far only have about 36" between the collars, putting the weights on the inside of the bar rack. My bench would require a bar to have 48" between the collars. I doubt any 5' bar could do that, b/c that would only leave 6" on each side for weights, but if you know of one that would be ideal.
But, more than likely, I'll have to go with a bigger bar. I can squeeze in a 6 footer, but definitely can't go up to 7. All of the 6' bars I've looked at so far only have 42"-46" between the collars. I know there's got to be a 6' bar out there with 48"+ between the collars. I'm looking for a straight bar, non-threaded, standard (1") or Olympic (2") is fine. Don't care to spend too much on it, but I'll do what I have to. Thanks.
