Looks to be if you're ripping up your shins like that. Aren't your bars smooth until about shoulder width?
Yeah I posted a form check recently and it was pretty solid so that gave me more confidence to add some weights. It felt natural lol, definately going for 110kg next time to see what's what.
The bar at my gym has a couple of brushed strokes on them for more grip, definately not smooth around the shins as u can see, lol. I've read about bleading shins before when it comes to deadlifting. Guess I just have to be a little bit more careful.
Tbh I don't care. If anything they are marks of being awesome.
