Anyone purchase a good olympic weight set for cheap recently? I am building a home gym, and plan on craigslist searching for all equipment, except the barbell set. I plan on starting with just a 300lb set or something close, and will buy additional 45’s later, and probably as bumper plates.
A google search reveals many options, but I am concerned the bars will be of low quality. Now, I do not need a super nice powerlifting bar for the first year or so, but do want something that feels of ‘gym quality’.
If a set is listed as ‘Olympic’ is it considered good enough for that? Thanks for you help guys.
