    Noob alert:

    When logging weight lifted, with BB weights each plate is counted and totaled, but DB weights each is counted only as one, right?

    I.e. 2x45 BB is 90lbs, 2x45 DB is 45, correct?

    the weight weighs just as much home as it does in the gym. 20lbs is 20lbs

    is theres one 45 on each side of the BB then its

    135/1x5

    135 lbs 1 set of 5 reps

    if you're using a 60 lb DB it's

    60/1x5

    60 lb DB each hand 1 set 5 reps

    it goes up exponentially :slap:

    w=45(x^17)

    where w is weight and x is the number of 45 plates
