    I have three 7 foot Oly bars, one is a York competition bar that is exactly 45 lbs, one CAP 7 foot Oly bar that is advertized at 45 but actually weighs exactly 35lbs. A third bar, some chinese off brand weighs in at exactly 42 lbs.
    These are weighed without heavy spin collars, bare bar only. These were weighed on a medical balance beam scale. The weight of these bars can vary from 35-55 lbs. If your in a competitive training mode, and train at home or in your own homemade gym, weigh your bar for the correct weight so you know exactly what your lifting at all times. If your at a club or gym, god only knows what your lifting, but at a glance, bars tend to go under 45 lbs more than over. I would assume if you don't know the exact weight, always assume your lifting 5-10lbs less than you think for a margin of error for competition training purposes. If not sure, get your equipment weighed at a reputable scale, not a bathroom scale or something like that. But don't assume your Oly bar is 45lbs!

    If using your own equipment, get your bars weighed on a quality scale, weigh the bar empty, the bar with collars and weigh one of the collars if they are identical and round off to the low number unless within a pound of a higher number, i.e. if it weighs 41-43.5 count it at 40, if 44 count it at 45, etc. log it down somehere or make a label up to put on the bar somewhere what its weight is, etc. I heard so many times somebody will say I lift more or can't lift as much at a gym than home or vice versa, well its because you ARE! I train at home and for me I want to know exactly what I am lifting as close as possible.

    The "standard" weight is assumed to be 45 lbs for the bar + collars. Back when the olympic bars first came out they had those heavy spin type collars, which were about 2 1/2 lbs each, so the original Olympic brand bar was 40 lbs, then another 5 for the collars.

    Now days the spring type collars, which barely add a pound for both, are more common, so collars are less of a concideration. With bars being manufactured in India, China, Brazil, and just about any other industrialized country the idea of a "standard" weight is all but gone. Unless it's an Ivanco or some other top notch brand, I would use 40 lbs as the base line for a 7 ft oly bar unless I could get a scale and check it for myself.
    When the opportunity has arrived,

    The time for preparation has past.

    The weight for the spin type collars was 5lb ea. York advertised theirs at 5 and the pair I have is exactly 5 ea.. I had a pair of chinese spin type, the weight was cast into the collar at 2.5 KG ea. and the actual weight was exactly 6 lbs a piece. But I agree, figure about 40 for an ordinary 7 foot Oly bar unless its a Ivanko, Eleiko etc. or some other top notch piece. The cheap bars I would weigh to be sure. International Competition bars were and I believe still are 20KG, about 44 lbs as a standard, hence the 45lb bar moniker.

    Today's "standard" 7' olympic barbell is 44lbs (20kg). Understand there can be as much as a 10-15lb sway in either direction depending on the bar and it's manufacturer.

    I've asked this question in another thread but this thread seems more appropriate:

    When stating your Bench Press stats, do you include the weight of the Olympic Bar?

    e.g. If I was pressing 2 X 45lb weights on an Olympic Bar, does that equate to 45+45+45??? (135)

    Can I ask you why do you think that you wouldnt count it? Is the bar made out of superlight superstrong plastic that it cant be accounted for? Of course it counts!

    When someone askes me how much I lift I add in the weight of the bar.

    In my workout logs though i just enter in the weight I put on the bar not counting the bar itself, as I don't want to have to do math in the middle of a workout to set up for my next exercise.

    well, as someone else stated, there can be up to a 15lb difference between certain barbells, so I was never sure if you just took 45lbs as a given..

    If you think about it, you could be adding 10-15 lbs onto your Personal Best without even knowing it.

    So in short, my question was based on the fact that there is no scales in the gym to weigh the barbell you are using!!!

    consider it a 45lb bar. All bars in the gym are commercially made, so there's not much variance just like the sets you buy at Sports Authority.

    I weighed my hampton and CAP bars, and both turned out to be 44 pounds. Pretty much any decent bar will weigh 44-45.

    Well, it has a scale, but that's downstairs in the gym, in the changing room, and I don't fancy having everybody watch me as i trundle down the stairs into the dressing rooms, just to weigh the bar!!

    Even if its off by 15 lbs and weighs 30 lbs, that's still a considerable amount not to add to your amount lifted.

    I'm with hardkore though, if its in a credible gym, you're probably safe assuming its 45 lbs.

    I have two CAP 7 foot olympic bars. I purchsed them from the same place. I always wondered why I could bench more on one of them well that's because one of them is 45 pounds...the other one is 35 pounds. I must say though that the quality of the CAP bars are pretty low, they are not exactly around and it's very noticable when I grip them. I'm getting me a Texas Powerbar once I get more money, I hear good things about those bars.

    come on, guys, just weigh the damn bars yourselves. bars are different, depending on the manufacturer, and sometimes the same maker will have different weight bars.

    Ahh............that's too simple. Can't somebody post a link to a "study," or something?

    Well sure...there's that.


    However, if the poster really thinks the weight of the bar is important and can't figure out how to weigh it on their own, that all bars can be different weights, that this has been discussed OVER AND FREAKIN OVER, and how to use the search feature on an internet forum...........I mean if all these things are true and they really aren't a troll...........then they are edging toward real ignorance and mental challenge.

    I cannot put a person like this in exactly the same box as a troll. I just can't do it.

    But that's how I roll......I'm a nice guy.
