Need to buy some gym gear

Recommended Posts

hey guys.

 

me and a mate have decided to go back to a home gym rather than pay membership

 

 

basically wanna buy

 

a strong rack, that u can have safety bars on for spotting, and a bar u can chin off.

 

olympic bar.

 

plates, not rubber moulded or anything special

 

adjust bench

 

and maybe kettlebells in the not too distant future.

 

 

 

i know a few guys have bought racks in the past couple years, so just after some locations/websites to save some cash...

 

im located in melbourne out near eltham to any vics who have a good physical shop they can recommend.

 

thanks for any help.

Look around on Craigslists or even here in the stuff for sale catagory. I've seen a fair few go through for cheap.

I just bought an ebay one from cybermarket. I think rack with cambered chin bars, oly bar, 140kg rubber coated sleeved olympic weight , spring collars, dip bars, incline flat bench cost me about $900 all up

 

Does the job fine. The only thing I might do in the future is upgrade the bar to a nice aussie barbells one. Other than that the rest of it is quality.

There is just simply no comparison between the cheap ebay bar i have and my $550 ABC bar, you will all set PB's with it at the comp.

The gear Spiros just sold for peanuts was quality. He did his own testing, its able to support 250kg deadlifts, 200kg squats, so it should be alright for you boys. Remember how Ghosty bent his cheap bar.

 

You get what you pay for.

picked it all up today. spiros is a top bloke, loves a chat ;).

 

plenty of weights to keep me n my mate busy, need another bar now. haha.

had a couple beers (whoops) with my mate and did a few deadlies to get a feel of the bar tonight. also had a go on the football bar, which id never used.

 

 

rack may need a few adjustments to suit, nothing major. will be wall mounting it tomorrow. ill get a picture of my new 'gym' for you guys once its set up.
