Isn't that just a trap bar? I would assume it weighs 20kg / 45lbs.

They vary. The one I use weighs 25# but I'm seen them up to 60#. Just put it on a scale.

don't have a scale i can put it on, it's in the weight room downstairs and the scales are upstairs next to the cardio machines.

it definitely weighs more tha a normal bar, quite a bit more. It's huge!

from what I've seen on the net they go up to 60lbs like stuward said, I'm fairly sure that's how much this one must weigh.

30 kilos, weighed it today. Snuck up and pinched the scales from beside the treadmills when no one was around.
