What do you do when you can not fit any more heavy weight plates on the barbell squats and/or barbell deadlifts?

What type of barbell are you using that you can't fit any more plates? Because I've seen people deadlift 7 plates on each side and still had some room left.

I am using the school barbell. I suppose you are talking of Olympic barbell. It would be too expensive to buy an Olympic barbell with all new weight plates.

@Hambo You're still in your school gym? Maybe you can suggest they need to purchase some new equipment to meet modern standards?

Are you able to get some people to share the cost and find a used barbell on Craig's List or Facebook marketplace?

There is probably at least one neglected/unused barbell that someone bought and never uses.

It is not that they are from school, it is mainly that they are 25 mm.

It does when you have trained a long time. But anyway, what do you do to add weight on the barbell when you cannot fit in any more heavy weight plates?

Thanks for answer.
