Usually when I am finished doing dead lifts and I am removing the weights I have trouble with the last 45lb plate. For reference it looks like the picture below.
I find it difficult to remove the plate because the bar is uneven and both the bar and plate have the same weight. I have tried a few methods: lifting the empty end of the barbell and pulling it away from the plate (usually results in the barbell gripping the rubber plate and I look foolish). Also I have tried holding the barbell stationary with one hand and pulling off the plate with the other (usually takes several tries to work the plate off as it grips the barbell and only moves a few inches at a time). I know there has got to be a pro tip for getting that last plate off, any ideas?
