Regarding the bar, I really like it as well! I haven't figured out if it is placebo effect or what but for some reason I lift better with the training bar than I had with my previous HD bar. You wouldn't think a .5mm difference in diameter would make a big difference but with the Training bar it seems I can get a better grip on the bar.
The first thing I did when I took it out of the box was chalk up the knurling. Beyond that I just lightly chalk my index and middle fingers as needed. I don't know if it was the new bar or what but I didn't use tape or anything and didn't shred my hands. The previous bar I had been using was an HD and I seemed to always be ripping callouses.
