That's where I typically do them. I feel that's the closest point to where my back would take over the workload from my legs when doing a full range deadlift.

I know I could Google it, but explanation is always more effective-  what is the DeFranco shoulder shocker?  Whatever it is, it sounds like I need it.

Little to no rest whatsoever other than towel to wipe away sweat and a little water.   Did it in 40 minutes last night.

Wrist/hands in a different grip as well as the bar has to travel in a slightly different plane to accommodate the diameter.

Interesting.
I've also read where thick bars supposedly reduce wrist pain on pressing movements.

Ok maybe not exactly that...
It's just different. I also did some static hangs for grip at the end with the fat bar. Good stuff.
