    Where to buy olympic style weights?


    I was able to pick up a good weight bench set with nice attachments but i'm stuck on getting a nice weight set of at least 300 pounds and the type you run into in most gyms(ya know with the bigger holes :P) Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    Bump on Walmart. The shipping is going to eat up any bit of savings on mail ordering the weights. I mail ordered the olympic bar, rack and chin-up/dip station (from NY barbell), but I pick up a weight or two whenever I do my big monthly shopping trip to Super Walmart. Sears also sells an olympic set - may want to watch for a sale.

    Yes, ironically, shipping will likely be more costly than the plate value. NY barbell is great for benches and racks.

    Yeah, one hell of a rock No , I looked at my local wal mart/sears/sams club/ebay(local) and found zero and the local sport stores want damn near a dollar a pound and that's with me still having to buy the bars. I just wanted a set that was solid and would last and that I could put to use when I couldn't make it to the gym instead of sitting here typing ****
