Weight of the Curl Bar?


#1

How much does the curl bar weigh?

Talkin bout the EZ and the mini straight bar.


#2

If I'm not mistaken the EZ bar weights like 15 pounds?That sound right to anyone else?


#3

Usually 25lbs


#4

Is there a scale in your gym?

Me and another guy weighed one just recently, and it was 17.5 lbs. The number seemed a little odd ( I 'spose it was... ), but we weighed it 2 ways, by itself, with just a fingertip balancing it, and with him on the scale with and without the bar, and subtracted. Both ways came out the same.

They may not all weigh the same though.

#5

ours at home is suppose to weigh about 15 pounds


#6

25lb in my gyms.


#7

25 usually. Let me guess you want to know how much you curl?


#8

No, I don't want to know how much I curl. Who would ever want to know that? That is so silly! Especially on this ant-curl website!

Anyway, I write down all my lifts when I get home and in all my years of training I've never known what the hell those little bastards weigh.


#9

Interesting. i always thought it weighed 15 lbs.


#10

I bet it would have taken far less time to walk over to a scale and weigh whatever bar you are interested in knowing the weight of than it did to type your message and wait for a reply...

are there no scales at your gym or home or where ever you work out at?


#11

ive always wondered this too, so i just never counted the bar when adding weight and recording it in my book.

but 10-15 lbs sounds about right...


#12

no scales at my gym....all the fat chicks in there would call it discrimination or complain that it was 'wrong' when they got on it.


#13

Every time I get to a new gym, I weigh the curl bar and mini straight bar. I got freaked out when I was putting more than I thought humanly possible on it and completing it, then going back to my normal gym and not coming close.


#14

I didn't want to look like sissy and be seen weighing the "curl bar" bro.


#15

Kill the Fat Chicks


#16

Smaller plate hole sized about 15lbs and the olympic ones 20 -25 i've found.
