Axle bars or "fat bars" have long been used in strongman competitions.
There are two unique aspects to fatbar training. The grip area on the bar is way thicker (about 2) than a standard barbell- this makes most exercises into forearm blasters, and makes everything harder. The collars do not rotate- so going ground-to-shoulder or ground-to-overhead is much harder than with a standard barbell.
For heavy weights, you may even need to use the dreaded "continental clean" instead of a standard clean to get the weight to shoulder.
