Hi guys, looking at finally taking the plunge and starting a home gym. Just looking at powerlifting so lining up a bench, squat rack, bar and weights. Found a used 2009 Pendlay HD Nexgen bar (bearing not bushing) with 2x20kg and 2x10kg for $300 and was wondering what your opinions were on that...
After seeing the fancy prices local suppliers want for collars, I bought these off eBay for $10 / pair.
This seems like an area where prices are wildly different depending on brand and store.
Spring collars apparently lose their grip after a while, and screw collars mar the barbell sleeve...

So i am toying with the idea of going bluetooth and leaving the ipod in the gym bag, the only issue is my ipod doesnt have bluetooth...
Once upon a time my gym buddy quit going to the gym. So I was a lone wolf. I stumbled into the Cheap and purple gym near my old work like a lost sheep. Reluctantly, after my warm up I decided to do weights because no one should be a cardio bunny. I knew their needed to be a balance.
So I sat...
Does anyone have any recommendations? I've got cheap rubber ones that leave black crap all over my hands and my barbell sleeves when I slide them on and off. These seem to be the best I can find http://aussiestrength.com.au/strength-equipment/weight-plates/rubber-coated-weight-plates.html
Looking to buy a new general purpose barbell to replace my cheap crappy one and I found this one on Gym Direct
