Ok so let's go through the cheapest options for new equipment that you'd be willing to use for training.

Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym.

Sell plates and buy all York legacy? Am I crazy?

I have lots of iron. Too much actually. Too many change plates, 35’s I never use. I don’t know why. They are a mix and match of Hampton deep dish, “standard” 45’s, a plain old modern York cast. I needed a couple of 45’s so I ordered 2 York legacy 45’s just to see what the fuss was all about. ...

Ok, bolt-down Power rack

I’m getting to the point where my eBay special no name rack isn’t going to cut it. I need a rack I can bolt down. I’m just not comfortable with free standing anymore. The Titan T-3 HD seems the obvious choice and I’ve looked at Rep and Rogue. Any other suggestions?
