I was at the gym today, and for some reason I wanted to know how much their smith machine bar weighed. I weighed one at the last gym it was 15lbs. I think alot are around that range. Anyhow.. I asked the guy who works there.. who was in the middle of helping a guy get set up on a training routine.. what he thought.
This dumbass says.. I dunno, about 55 lbs? I said really man? That cant be right.. he replied with .. well the regular bench bar is 45, and this has these glides attached to it. So about 55, but I'll check into it.
Now this guy is probably mid to late 30's, maybe early 40s. decent body, looks like hes been training for alot of years, but I couldnt beleive this idiot said that. If I was thinking slower, I would have said something like..
Hey, do you think I can hold 55lbs up with two fingers? as I held the smith machine bar up... but instead I just went back to my workout.
Anyhow, I'm bringing a scale to work tomorrow and weighing it. Unbelievable.
