get on the scale…weigh yourself….then grab one of your olympic bars…reweigh…and tell me how much the bar weighs.
i've bought two bars so far…and on my bathroom scale…my 45 pound plates weigh 45 pounds….when i get on and hold my bar both of them weigh like 37 pounds. so i'm curious…is it just because the bars are so long that they dont' weigh correctly on a bathroom scale…or is the bars themselves….or wtf is going on :) i'm contemplating taking them to work and weighing them on the huge ass industrial digital scale….or returning this one and spending 70 more bucks on a power bar. with both bars…both companies and their accompanying documentation say they weigh 45 pounds. but with a "control" my scale says they don't.
thanks for any help.
