The Fray Fitness easy load bar was designed to do just that, make your shrugs and deadlifts easier to load. This is accomplished with the weight pegs being situated 10" off the ground to make plate loading and swapping weight plates out simple. Another awesome feature is the 3 different sized rotating grip handles. You have the choice to use the 1", 1.5" or 2" grip, all being well knurled for added grip strength. This will fit your 2" Olympic sized plates.
