Here's a 6 plate squat with a 28 mm 45 lb bar: Notice it's flopping all over and I can barely control it:


Here's a 6 plate squat with a 32 mm 55 lb bar: That bitch don't move at all:


Here's 4 plates only with my 50 lb 27mm Texas deadlift bar. Whippy AF

We went into our shop area for our 1/2 hour unpaid lunch and this apprentice insisted on turning on a large speaker radio way too loud. I and a couple others asked nice please turn it off/down till we leave.(about 30 people there) Got a basic FU from him. I walked over and turned it off, he walked over and turned it back on.

I walked back over grabbed the radio and as hard as I could slammed it on the floor. He put his hands up in a fighting posture and started towards me. Then common sense took over and he stood down as I was not in a mood to play with some punk kid.

The owner of the company who knew me later told me off the record you did what had to be done, but don't do it again. It took a couple weeks but the apprentice and I started talking again and as time went by he turned into quite a good decent worker.

Well, maybe. I mean, I can add, with the help of a calculator. I guess that makes me a lot smarter than the average guy who picks things up and puts them down.

what i find interesting is the weight lifting info.

bars are measured in mm, but weights are quoted in pounds.

Actually, the bar Flex posted a link to is a 25 Kg bar, so it is a smidge over 55 pounds. It does look like all his plates in the great white North are in pounds though.
