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.
