So when you talk about lifting, do you include the weight of the bar in the weight you list?
>>
>>35593326
Always include the bar.
>>
>>35593326
i also factor in gravity
>>
yes the bar is included
>>
>>35593326
Yes, people always add the 90 lb for the bar
>>
Yes but you divide it by 2 and add half to each side because you're using 2 hands
>>
>>35593326
No, the bar is weightless due to the gravitational infetterence
>>
>>35593326
Yes.

Standard bar is 45lbs; however some gyms are gay and use bars that only weigh between 15-25. Always check the weight of your bar; it will usually state its weight on the ring at the end.

I don't feel like such a puss now, I thought the weights people talked about were just the plates not counting the bar. Thanks guys.

spoke to a guy at the gym a few days ago. He said he includes his body weight minus like 20 pounds on his squat. i asked why

"because everything above your knees is being lifted as well."

>mfw
>>
>>35593326
well that depends. are you LIFTING the bar or is it just sitting somewhere off to the side?

>>
Depends if it's been raining or not.
