    The bottom line is this: A TRUE Olympic bar weighs 44lbs/20kg. But there are hundreds of other bars that have different weights.

    I have:
    6' bar-10lbs
    7' One inch bar-20lbs
    Oly Bar-44lbs (or 45, as we round up here)
    EZ-curl bar-5lbs
    Ez-Curl bar-10lbs
    Tricep/HG bar-5#
    Adj. DBs-3.5lbs
    Smith machine bar with Oly ends- 20#

    And that's just mine. There hundresd of variations, but again, a TRUE Oly bar is always going to be 44lbs/20kg.

    Since there are already multiple threads about bar weights, the real question is why did someone feel the need to resurrect this thread that's almost 5 years old?

    Be careful when buying an olympic bar. They are supposed to be 45 pounds, but they are very often off by 5-10 pounds. Make sure you weigh it at the store. I know someone who bought one at Dick's sporting goods and ended finding it to weigh 35 pounds!

    I bought the 300# set for $99(Christmas sale) at sports authority. Measured my bar the other day and came out to 34 pounds. Annoying , yes. I will shop for a real bar after I pickup a bench.

    Neither. There's no regulation weight. You have to weigh the bar yourself, that's the only way you'll know.

    As I stated before, the cheap imported bars have cast metal sleeves of very brittle low grade metal while a quality bar has machined steel sleeves and solid roll or needle bearings. The bar itself is obviously of lower grade steel than a quality bar.

    C man, when you said

    There's no regulation weight. You have to weigh the bar yourself, that's the only way you'll know.

    you means that coud happen with standard oly bars too, right?

    but yeah, really i think most of the gyms owners or lifters don't check their bars weight. Most will just assume they are as stated.
    and i agree with someone who wrote:" an olympic bar it's a standard 7 foot bar, so it weighs 45 pounds and can handl up to 1500 pounds (i think a more accurate weght is 43 pounds, but using 45 makes the math easier on us muscle-heads)." what do you think about?

    My gym got new bars that feel thicker and heavier but are more solid. I hope they are the real 45lb ones and not 55lbs. The old ones felt lighter
