Hey all, I’ve been lurking for a while, and at the suggestion of TC’s front page article, finally got around to signing up.
Anyway, I have an old bench with a squat rack on the back, got it at a yard sale a couple of years ago. It came with a few Weider 20lbs iron plates, and a bunch of really wide ones that are ceramic or something with plastic on the outside.
I’ve been doing Rippetoe’s starting strength for about a month, and it’s working really well for me. Unfortunately, those ceramic weights are really thick and my deadlift weight is getting high enough that there is simply not enough room on the bar to fit the weight I need, the ceramic weights take up too much space.
So my question is, does anyone know where I can buy some more of those iron 20lbs plates? I don’t want to buy a whole new bench, I just need some thin iron plates, rather than those dumb ceramic dealeos so I can fit more weight on the bar. I looked around ebay, maybe I’m just dumb, but I couldn’t really find what I needed.
Anyway, thanks in advance. T-Nation rocks!
