How much is 1pl8 anyway?

Supergrass

not sure if meme or something.

it's 135

Garbage Can Lid

@Supergrass
1p8 is 90lbs dummy.

Each plate is 45lbs, 1pl8 = two on each side of the bar, 45 × 2 = 90lbs

RumChicken

@Garbage Can Lid
Again, not sure if meme. But you include the weight of the bar, so 45x3. If it's a meme or something to not count the bar then fuck me, but that's retarded.

Dreamworx

it depends on how heavy the plate is, retard

King_Martha

HaHa. Memes. Amirite guys?

Evil_kitten

Jesus Christ, has anyone on this board even been to a Gym? A plate is 45 lbs, unless otherwise specified.

I bet you dont deduct weight for the grooves cut out of the knurling either

TurtleCat

@Evil_kitten

Counting the bar
Haha holy crap. Do you count your body weight too? Dyels, when will they learn.

New_Cliche

1pl8 is literally 1 plate, which is 45 lbs

Raving_Cute

@Techpill
Why would you only put on 1 pl8 that makes no sense idiot it would be off balance. You have to start off with 2pl8 which equals 90lbs because 45*2 and then add another 90 for the bar which is around 180 lbs.

Bidwell

I'm in the UK and do everything in kg , is this basically 20kg on each side of the bar?

iluvmen

@Bidwell
No, it’s 20kg plus the bar

but the bar weighs 180 by itself

Emberburn

180cm, not lbs

VisualMaster

if I have a 25kg plate is it a 1 plate?

FastChef

@Emberburn
The bar at my gym weighs 200watts.
Silly Europoors using the metric system.

@Techpill
1pl8 is 45lbs which is 20-20.4kg depending on where you live.

however they're counted per side, so if you bench 1pl8 you actually bench 90lbs, 2pl8 180lbs and so on plus the 20kg barbell

TreeEater

@Lord_Tryzalot
What kind of dumbass math is this?

1=2
2=4

TechHater

@TreeEater
pl8s imply a pair. Example: Shoes.

@TechHater
But that’s wrong.

Actually believing some meme on an Mongolian basket weaving forum.
There is no such thing as 1pl8, you can do 2pl8 90lbs minus bar, 4 pl8, 180lbs minus bar etc

Need_TLC

@Supergrass
One plate is 45 pounds minus the hole in the middle, usually about .5 pounds. So a plate is 44.5 pounds. You don’t lift.

@iluvmen
That's wrong, the bar is 20kg - 1pl8 is 40kg.

@RumChicken
counting the bar

King_Martha

@RumChicken
lmao this nigga thinks anything but pl8s actually count for weight
i bet he still thinks he's actually lifting any weight when he does pull ups

Nojokur

@BunnyJinx
By your logic, in order to lift an odd number of plates you have to lift one side with no weight on the other

using a bar

massdebater

@Nojokur
Yes? Are you retarded?

Burnblaze

Does 1pl8 bench mean the total of 10kg on each side, or 20kg on each side?
I always thought 1 plate bench meant 20kg each side.

@Burnblaze
20kg on each side.

BunnyJinx

@massdebater
No, you are.

"Plates" is really "plates per side."

Seriously. Stop being a meme-tier retard and go back to huffing whey vapor.

Raving_Cute

this is why 1/2/3/4 is considered a milestone. 2pl8 bench and 4pl8 deadlift are easy but 3pl8 squat and especially 1pl8 ohp are very difficult to do given how off balance the bar is

cum2soon

@Need_TLC
yea but the hole is filled in by the bar which makes up the weight

PackManBrainlure

@Raving_Cute
mfw I cheat and stand 1/3 closer to the heavier side
