I work out @ home an any grage sale/auction or flea market I attend I look for olympic weights to add to my home arsenal.
Wednesday night @ an auction there was 427 1/2lbs + 2 older olympic bars, (the sleeves were off) an 1 curl bar w/a WEIDER curl bar w/ a price tage of $19.99 clearance price on it.Either way whwn the auctioneer began calling for bids no one answered. He droped from $50 to $2. I raised my hand an the res tis history. I loaded them up in my car that evening.
I did the math on the weights alone an it came out too 0.0046 x lb. Thats less than 1 cents x lbs.
Previusly I have also bought 300lbs weight stacks an benches there for $25.%50. Just seemed no one there wanted to mess w. those weights that night.
Also here an ther I pick up lighter dumbell weighs an like to cut them an use then as grip block to strengthen my hand strenght.There is no craiglist here, I know a few of you have made off w/ some deal there but we don’t have it here.
Any one ever walk away w/ great deals @ auctions/flea markets are other resale-retail shops?Definately worth looking into esp if you work out @ home an are in need of adding weight plates to your collection.
A friend of mine also picked up a 3 tier Dumbell rack for $25. it was a body solid brand.
Jusy my .02 cents an wondering what experices you have had.
