Does anyone know about the quality? Im thinking about getting a set for my basement. They look pretty nice. If anyone knows anything about them i would appreciate it.
 
Weights would probably be the only weightlifting type thing I would buy from walmart. You can't beat them pricewise. I wouldn't buy any bars or stuff from them though.



Unless your doing some apeshit olympic lifts then you'll need some quality bumper plates and mats and what not.....
 
Yeah, I bought a pair of the 45's just to cheaply and conveniently add some more weight to my Olympic set for deadlifting. They're fine...it's just cast iron so there's not much "quality" to worry about. My only bitch with them is that they have the built in handles design which most hardcore types consider to be "ghey". Also, they are a slightly smaller diameter than your typical Olympic style plates (at least the 45's are) which is not a big deal to me.
 
i have the olympic bench from there the red and black great buy for the price i think it was less than $110. would buy it again, as for weights the way i see it its all iron to me, ive personaly never seen one break.
 
oh well call me ghey,. If the definition of ghey is having grips in the plates making them easied to load and unload on and off a bar. That sounds pretty Ghey to me. Man where have all the men gone. Next these :eek::eek::eek:s will have chalk to help your grip. Oh wait.
 
wow, worry to add this in but it's the first time i've seen my precious green belt since my dubs have been taken away. Everyone must bow down to me becauee It took me 2 years to achieve my green belt. woo HOo
 
Now to add to my post whorage, I work for a moving company. On Friday this lady had a beautiful
NY olympic Barbell sitting in her basement. I offered her 50$ for it, she thought about it for a second and then she said take it and the weights 255lbs worth, "they are my sons and I want them out of here". I gladly obliged. Im telling you The quality of the NY barbells are so nice. there was not a single warp in it and the grip, I don't know wether it is a bit thinner but I could really get a serious grip on that bar. Anyone I feel extremely lucky because along with my new bar I have over 600lbs of olympic plates now. Thats enough for me to work with for a while. Hopefully I will even outgrow them someday.

damn, nice...
 
Nice job Rick! I'm always on the prowl for free weights like that. Infact, within the last year I've gotten close to 800 lbs in weights for dirt cheap or free. Since I already had well over 400 before I started this, I sold the plates I didn't want on craig's list or took them to Play it Again. You'd be amazed at how many people have weigths they don't use that just collect dust.
