    Is it OK to leave the bar (45 pounds, no weights) in the J-Cups on a rack?

    Or should it be removed?

    The bar by itself shouldn't be an issue.

    The bar with weights left on it is another story.

    Depends how much weight you leave on the bar.

    If it's a one-inch bar and you leave a substantial amount of weight on....

    There's a good chance you will develop a bow in the bar over time.

    Especially if you use the weights infrequently and they sit there for a long time.

    An Oly bar has a little more meat on it...........so it might be less prone than a one-inch.

    But put enough weight on the Oly and leave it long enough.........and there could be issues later.

    For me it'll just be the bar.
