How to count barbell weights?

I'm trying to get my 1RM's done and I'm not sure how to count the weights for the barbell exercises. I used 20 lbs. of wgts. on an 8.5 lb. barbell for the Seated Front Press Double Arms 1.5. So do I count the weight at 28.5 or 20. I'm thinking it would be 28.5 but I want to be sure. Thanks in advance for the help.

You count 28.5.... barbells can have different weights, mine's 10 lbs. You always include the weight of the bar in the total.
