Me, quietly nodding... and trying to do the mental math. 8x45+45=405. Hmm. Maybe he's counting the total number of plates equaling 4? Ok, but that's 225. Either way, it's not adding up to 300. I continue going down a rabbit hole trying to figure out in what way a multiple of four + bar = 300, as I fill my coffee cup. Bromath. It must be Bromath.

benching with a texas squat bar + (4) 25kg plates + the rare 12.5# collars = 300# . . . yeah that must be it

I was thinking the standard plates weighed something different back when these guys were in high school.

300 lbs - 45 lbs bar = 255. 255/8 = 31 7/8# per plate. This means the squats were 427.5.

Bro's Laws of Bench Motion:
1) As long as the spotter doesn't hang to grunt to lift the weight, "It's all you."
2) Regardless of the weight on the bar, the spotter's job is to maintain it at the same acceleration across sets
3) All masses equate to tree-fiddy.

Appears that #1 East Coast Trainer has burst into flames due to his chauvinistic post about buttox: Instagram

Shortly after his #goodcredit plummeted and knee shards exploded all over the gym.

Four plates=2 45s, 1 35, 1 2.5.
