Was at Sports Authority today and they had a 200lb Olympic barbell set on sale, pretty cheap i think at $139. As a straight up beginner could this work for me or would I be better off joining a gym with squats racks, lat pull downs etc. ?
For my goals i just want to get in a good routine (as far as trainging consistenly each week), work on some basic lifts-rows, front/oh squats and DL variations and would love to "keep it simple stupid’
Room for the weights is an iussue but i have been thinking about just putting it on the rooftop of my building (i have access through the fire escape).
Can i build a strong balanced foundation with this or should i be looking to get into a gym?
