# Thread: How should I record weight of Ghetto T-bar Rows?

1. ## How should I record weight of Ghetto T-bar Rows?

Holding a 45-lb. barbell in a corner with weights on one end. I know as long as I can keep track of my progress that it shouldn't really matter how much I am lifting, but just out of the sake of curiosity I want to know how most people record that weight. Do I count the weight of the full barbell along with the added weight? Or just count the added weight? Obviously the barbell still weighs something, but I'm clearly not pulling the whole weight of 45 lbs. + additional plates due to my mad skillz of fizzikz.

2. Just count the plate weight.

3. I just count the plates as well.

4. It really doesn't matter how you record it, just record it the same way consistently so you can gauge if you are making progress.

5. im sure theres some mathematical way to figure out how much tension you are pulling in that situation, since the weight isnt evenly distributed like if you were benching or something and will change as the angle increases, but i would just count the weight you put on the bar, and focus on increasing that number. if you're really curious and want a quick estimate, grab a few dumbells and compare it to the weight of just the bar, but id just focus on the weight that u put on the bar

^^ This^^

7. Thanks guys. As I stated I realize consistent progress is all that's important, but I was curious as to what's the "norm" with how to record weight.
