    They might be using 55lb squat bars - theyre quite a bit more durable and much harder to bend.

    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

    i hope so.. i feel like poo when i come back to LA when im on break and i have a hard time benching the same weight I do at school

    I used to have a home gym that when I bought it, it said 14 lb. bar on the cover of the thing. I wish I had taken a picture of it. Arbitrary # of pounds for a bar 0.0

    no. If you're Squating just dump the bar. You might cause some attention but that attention is sure a hell of a lot better then using the smith machine. If you're benching, just don't get pinned

    if you have no spotter then make sure the safety pins are in the proper position and just bail out. Smith machines can burn in hell
