      If your a woman yea

      Yes, you include the 20 kilogram bar.

      Dumbest question I've heard in a while. Do you count the reps you do? Do you count the weight of the dumbbells you use? Do you know what machine you're using? Do you know what gym you're going to? Can you hear the silence? Can you see the dark? Can you fix what's broken? Can you see, can you see my HAAAAAARRTTTTRTTT

      >don't include bar weight
      >load up 5 bars
      >combined negative weight from the bars now allow me to levitate out through the window
      >mfw

      You only count 5-12 perfect form reps as a set, no other reps suffice, fuck off gay you don't even lift.

    Engineer here. I can understand why people are confused by this, allow me to explain.
    Obviously when you're only lifting the bar, it has weight. We all know the standard barbell weighs 45lbs. Where it becomes complicated is when the weight that you load onto the bar is higher than the weight of the bar itself. At that point, the bar is no longer the actual weight. It becomes the means through which you're lifting the weights on the ends of the bar. Once those weights exceed that 45lbs or whatever your bar weighs, the bar becomes EFFECTIVELY weightless because the weight is counterbalanced. Thus, you shouldn't count the weight of the bar toward weight lifted. Hope that helps some of the newer lifters out there

      I can confirm.
      Benching the bar or the bar with 10 kg on each side feels the same.

    No. The bar is weightless. That's how physics work.
