Arien I actually have not tested my max in a while so I can't be sure on that... I don't own bumpers or a platform so I refrain from doing any heavy Oly lifting at home. Thats why im in the market for a training set that won't kill the wallet too badly but I don't want to sacrifice quality on the bar too greatly. I already broke my el cheapo commercial bar and chipped up the solid plates pretty badly.
Equipment goals for summer are to build a platform and purchase a training set that will last long.
