    usually the barbell at the gym is 45lbs. But it also just depends they range in many diff sizes and weight. But that should not matter. Its now how much you can lift its how good you look

    My oly bar is 44lb and my plates are also 44lb each. I believe the majority of oly sets now have 45lb bars and plates.
