Default Question for fellow Troy Lite Barbell owners

Hi,

I just bought the barbell a couple of weeks ago. It ships with 35lbs of plates and I am assuming the bar itself weighs 5 lbs.

What is the total weight capacity of this bar? Can I add more than the 35lbs? What is the most of you have loaded on it?

Thanks for your help.

Susan

IDK it's exact weight limit but I think it can hold somewhere between 80 and 100#. I know I've had it loaded up to about 75# and it's been fine.

HTH!

If the Troylite bar is the one Cathe uses in Muscle Max, then I have it. I always thought you could buy more plates from Troylite or Walmart.

When I bought mine, I also ordered two extra 10 pound plates. I since purchased extra 10 pound plates from Target. Works a treat.

I have had my barbell up to about 70 pounds. It can handle much more. There's one workout where Cathe takes hers up to about 100 pounds? If you ask her in the Ask Cathe forum, she can tell you.

I've had my Troy Lite for over 10 years. Love it.

My paperwork said the maximum load is 110 lbs.

You're going to love your Troy Lite. I have three barbells, one being an Olympic and the Troy is my favorite! I love the ease of being able to change the plates easily with the clip/springy thing that holds the plates on.

Default I think it's 80 pounds

I also recently bought the Troy Lite barbell. I bought mine from dumbbellbuddy.com and their website says that the max is 80 pounds. Here's a link: Troy Lightweight Workout Sytems From DumbbellBuddy.com

I've always wondered how much weight the Troy Lite would support ... now I know! (thanks!) I've owned mine about 4 years now and am still in love with it. I still remember the days when I used to sub barbell exercises with a dumbbell and then once I had my barbell it was like - squeeee!! - no turning back.

I'm just wondering if the Troy Light barbell (TRW-40G) is too light for the STS series?
