The barbell itself weighs 20KG, you morons are either trolling or retarded thinking the bar starts at 0KG before adding weight.

Yes, the barbell itself weighs 20kg/45lbs. No, that doesn't mean you count it when you state your lifts. We count what we put on the barbell, not the entire weight of what we are lifting, by that logic the clamps count too. Only egolifters and broccoli heads do it to smuggle in an extra 20kg on their 1rm. Anyone can handle the bar, that's a common denominator.
By that logic I already squat 5pl8 because if you count the bar, your bodyweight counts too.
Do people other than teenagers actually do that? Just automatically detract 20kgs off any stated lift, in order to imagine what that guy actually puts onto the bar? Whoops, I got on a long pair of sweatpants instead of gym shorts today, gotta add another 1lb of weight when I state it lol

The bar isn't a weight plate, it's just the thing that holds the weight plates.

Exactly, you say 'two plate' not 'two plate and the bar'

exactly two plate bench just means u r holding a plate per arm

Nobody is claiming that the bar is weightless just that you don't count it in your total overall weight.

The barbell actually does weigh 0 when you are bench pressing because of the way it bends. It bends down at the sides from the weight which pushes the middle (where you're holding it) upwards, negating the weight

You're getting trolled, anon. You do count the bar. Most bars weigh 20kg, so if you're benching 60kg you have 20 kg on each side. The weight of the bar should be written on the sides of the bar, the little circle

bro i dont think you will be able to double your bench press every 3 months lol but think what you can do in two years and stick to it.. imagine benching 100 kg for reps, how sick would that be... does it matter if it takes you longer then 6 months from now

No you're not strong. You break out of embarrasing tier when you put on the 25 plates either side, you're not in strong for normie standards until your repping 90's. You're not actually strong until your repping above 100.

so benching 70kg is out of the embarssing tier?
also how many repps above 100 is strong in ur eyes, do u mean 1 rep max or?

6-8 reps. 70 is the first time you've actually got big boy weight on both sides of the bench.
