When I started lifting, I purchased a 45# 7' bar Olympic set that came with 255#s of weights. The description says "maximum bar weight capacity: 300lbs" Does that mean total weight capacity including the bar is 300, or can I add 300 to the bar. And, is that really the maximum?
I'm now hip thrusting 275# and wondering if I need to invest in a heavier capacity bar. If so, any recommendations?
