How much does a weight lifting bar weigh?


Answer by  swheat85 (18)

The official weight lifting bar that is used in the Olympics weighs forty-five pounds, without any additional weights added to it. I have found that many of the weight lifting bars that individuals have in their homes range anywhere from twenty to forty-five pounds alone.

An average bench press bar weights 45 lbs, without the additional weights that go on each side of it. (That's why a lot of people will joke, "I bet can't even lift the bar! ") If you add cushioning for your hands, though, it may add a little bit of weight, but not much.

Answer by  Srfingfreak (697)

A weight lifting bar weighs 45 pounds usually, if it is a bench press or squat bar. Curling bars weigh 15-25 pounds. The bars are usually marked in some area showing the weight. If they aren't marked, scales are usually present in weight lifting rooms, so just weigh the thing.

The standard for a bench press type bar is 45 pounds. The standard for a curl type bar is 15 pounds.
