Hello all,

I've created a spreadsheet that tells you what plates to put on the bar for a given weight. I didn't find anything like it on the net, so I created it.

Good lifting,
boflex03 aka obo1

unfortunately when i talk to lifting with some people and i mention the weight 225lbs, they ask me which plates are used for that. Simple addition apparently doe not come easy for all. So this might be helpful to some, but i would hope not many.

I'm failing to see how this is useful. Are you supposed to print it out and bring it to the gym with you? Write down which plates to use for each weight of each set in your log book before each workout? Or just memorize the whole thing?
Learning to use them 2nd grade addition skills seems like the way to go here.
Edit: I didn't even look at it when I wrote my original response. After I saw it was one of those automatic-calculating spreadsheets, I guess that rules out my first option. But still...

Did you seriously just type a paragraph criticising a little excel sheet?

Some things never change around here.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings, just seems a little impractical.

Oh no, please don't destroy me with your superior debate skills...
Sorry I'm not here to coddle people. I saw no point, and I still see no point.

At first, I thought the OP was putting up a calculator from some kind of Bowflex machine given the thread title. Now that I know it's just for normal olympic bar and plates. WTF?

Seriously, WTF man?

If there's anyone out there having trouble adding up the weight in the gym, perhaps your money would be better spent on math books and a tutor rather than gym fees and supplements.

Hopefully Print will show up soon to punch you in the face.

There's a calculation out there somewhere that would tell us how many posts about something that's 'useless' start to weigh more than the useless thing itself.

Two posts after mine is the answer, assuming they are 'on topic'. The number varies of course if tits are posted, or if Ct. rockula posts another thing that is sex related or a mildly unrelated thread bomb pic is posted.
