I bought 50kg weights which I am going to use when I do my workouts from home!

I’m somewhat a beginner but this might sound so dumb but when you carry a barbell weight with 10kg on each side for example...does that mean I’m lifting 20kg or just 10kg? (Will help with how I track)

Also I’m trying to gain some weight, I was thinking has anyone tried Gulis 1 month programmes with a meal and workout plan? Let me know how it was - I haven’t yet but it seems great because it’s tailored to you

Two 10kg plates on a barbell = 20kg + the weight of the bar. If you have a standard (men's) Olympic barbell, of weight 20kg, you'd be lifting 40kg total.

You are lifting 22 kg (10 kg + 10 kg + 2 kg rod)
