    I always use the largest possible plates I can, with one exception:
    If I'm doing say, 225, 245, 255, 265 in that order, I won't bother removing the 2 10's to put on a 25 instead for the final set. People who intentionally use multiple small plates, and not even part of just a ramp-up, just intentionally loading small plates, kind of drive me nuts.

      I'll personally still remove those 10's for 25, and the reason is pure autism. It is more work no particular reason and I cannot help but do it.

        I'll swap out the 10's for a 25 if I plan to go higher, also because autism, but not if that's my top set. Guess I'm just more high-functioning, fren.

          Well that's how it is. You're alright friend, any gains I got to give I hope they go your way.

      this. no point in unracking all the weight to use less if you're gonna end up re-racking that same weight immediately/soon after

    bottom is objectively heavier because it is a longer lever pulling down

      it would put more torque on your wrists but it wouldn't be heavier

      It's balanced AND matched by an equal and opposite force from the bar (since the bar is not bending/breaking). The only exception to this is if you were holding the bar in some kind of assymetrical manner like during a T-bar row.

        >what is equal and opposite reaction
        it's applied twice and both point towards the ground idiot so it has to push back against your hands. literally learn 2 force diagrams

          No you retard, the "lever arm" is applied against the internal structure of the barbell which is what bends the bar at heavier weights. It does not resolve down to the actual weight you experience.

            the sum of forces has to be zero otherwise the barbell would levitate towards the ceiling the weight from the lever is transferred to your hand then to your feet then to the ground also gravity is applied twice because of the additional plates so it's even heavier

      Assuming the bar is stiff, there's absolutely no difference, picrel applies to both cases. Assuming it isn't, you're also wrong because the bar will bend more, which makes it easier.

    My gym has the 55lb red plates but I always avoid using them. The extra thickness is just enough to make them awkward to pinch and carry around with one hand. So I always ignore them and just swipe extra blues
