    All bars i'm aware of are 45lbs/20kg.

    There are reinforced bars for heavy deadlifting/squats that weigh more though.

    When was that scale calibrated? Do you have a certificate of calibration from the department of weights and measures?

    That is the scale ND uses to weigh himself, therefore he tips the scales at 135.2 lbs...not some ***** number like 135.
