What Does The EZcurl Bar Weigh?

I’ve been getting conflicting answers. I always thought it was 25 lbs. I now learn that may be incorrect.

So little it doesn’t even count.

how about just placing it on a scale in the gym

Negative 25 pounds. Thats why it is EZ. Duh.

I believe it weighs 15 lbs

They normally weigh between 15-20 lbs, sometimes it is something unusual like 16.5 lbs or 23 lbs. However, as someone suggested, simply weigh it on the scale to find out for sure.

I train at home. You do have a point though. I’ll just end this laziness and bust out the scale.

Yea, it isn’t much, but I don’t curl very much. So it’s the difference between 95 and 105 lbs.

I responded before I fully thought. My EZcurl bar weights very little. It’s the kind you buy at a department store.

An olympic straight bar weights 45lbs from what I remember. I know an olympic EZcurl bar weight more than my department store brand, but less than an olympic straight bar.

If you want a better number, grab the bar, jump on a scale, put the bar down, look at the scale. X-Y = EZcurl weight.

Too much.

At out gym…
EZ curl weighs 15 lbs.
Olympic bar 45 lbs.
Thick bar 50 lbs.
