    anything between 300kg and 1000kg generally depending on price etc. There are a few specialist bars that cost thousands that will be rated higher.

    depends on a lot of factors mate. Type of steel, thickness, type of lifts etc

    ie a 100K power clean will bend a bar more than a 150K DL

    Non-olympic? When younger I had a 7 foot gold's gym bar - it was only rated up to 110kg though. It could probably take more, but would have bent quite a bit I imagine. If you know the manufacturer of the bar (ie. who makes it) look them up and give them a ring - they should be able to tell you.

    I'd seriously be weary of lifting these kinds of weights on a standard bar (or at least what my idea of one is).

    Any chance of a picture of a standard (non olympic) bar so we're all sure we're talking about the same thing?
