Anyone know how much those "mini" olympic BBs weigh?

  1. Anyone know how much those "mini" olympic BBs weigh?

    I have one at my gym that's 5 feet long and was wondering if they are always a certain weight (like the regular 45 pounders) or if there is no way of knowing without measuring it? It's the same thickness and all the markings are the same as the full-sized 45 pound one if that means anything.

  2. They are a different weight if its the one I am thinking it is its 35 pounds.

  3. I think they are lighter than 35lbs. They are shorter and the thick part that holds the weights are shorter.
    The (standard) ez-curl bars weigh 17.5 lbs and I think the mini olympic weigh 10lbs more than that. just an estimate.

  4. straight olympic bar one size smaller than your typical 45 lbs is 25 lbs. Ez curl bars vary from 15 to 35 lbs. I believe you are referring to the the straight 25's

  5. A few years ago, I took one of those bars into the locker room & weighed myself with it since nobody seemed to know. It was 35lbs. I don't know if they're all the same though.

    I use it for curls sometimes & I always use use 10lbs more than I use on a full straight bar, so that about right.
