A guy is trying to sell me 2x25lb 10x10lb 6x5lb and 6x2.5lb with a straight bar dumbbell handles and curling bar for $50

another guy is selling 8x35lb 22x2.5lb plates and 8x10lb for $75

the second deal would come out to be mroe than 100 because i would have to buy a straight bar and dumbbell handles

or a 295lb olympic weight set for $125

which should i get???

Just a guess but the first one is probably Standard 1" hole plates not Olympic so you wouldn't want it as a startr aet in any case.

THe second guy sounds like he is trying to get rid of his 35's so he can keep the 45's

I would start with the Olympic set.

The olympic weight set sounds like the best deal as long as you have a squat/power rack and a bench to use.

Otherwise you might be better off looking for some inexpensive dumbbells and an adjustable bench instead of a weight set.
