    cheap weight plates?

    Primal Fuel
    Anyone know a (relatively) inexpensive way to get weight plates?

    I currently do everything with a standard bar, but my DLs have gotten heavy enough that the bar is starting to scare me.

    So I figure I'll get a rated Olympic bar so I can keep progressing. However the problem I have is finding a relatively inexpensive way of getting the weight plates.

    For ~$200 I can get 300lbs of weight plates at a place like Dick's Sporting Goods (and throw away the crappy bar that comes with them), but that is only 2 x 45lbs.

    The cheapest 45lbs I found was on craigslist for around $39 a plate.

    In short I want a bunch of Olympic weight plates cheap Any ideas?

    Craigs list? ebay? kijiji? The problem is they don't wear out so new or used does not matter. You could try talking to a fitness store and getting a package deal with a half decent bar.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    There used to be a place around here called "Play It Again Sports" where they took old sports equipment and resell them for a fraction of retail. May want to check it out!
