    Putting and taking out plates on barbell rod.

    "My friend puts one hundred seventy kg on the rod while doing bench press."

    "Please put ten kg plates on both side of the barbell rod."

    "I am putting ten kg plates on the barbell rod for this set but on the next set I will take out ten kg plates and put twenty kg plates on the rod."

    Please check.

    For the first sentence I would prefer,
    My friend lifts 170kg when doing bench presses.

    We don't say 'rod'.

    The whole thing is called a barbell, but you usually just talk about putting weights on the bar.

    Re: Putting and taking out plates on barbell rod.

    Weightlifting's not my area of expertise but I'm pretty sure I've heard "My friend can benchpress 170kg".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In AmE, we'll even shorten that to just 'bench'.

    I can bench 350 lbs*.
