        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 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
