im not sure. i have a bench at home that has a skinny barbell and i weighed it and its actually 35lbs. The ones at my school where I work out are skinny but theyre 45. The ones at LA fitness are thick and awkward I think they might be 55lbs. Its really impossible to know unless you weigh the damn things cause most barbells are all different weights between 35 and 55
