1p8 is 90lbs dummy.

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

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.

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

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
No, it’s 20kg plus the bar

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

pl8s imply a pair. Example: Shoes.

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

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.

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

@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

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.

20kg on each side.

No, you are.

"Plates" is really "plates per side."

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

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

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