Re: How many bumpers do I really need?

Just like Jesse said, get 4 or 6 iron 45's for your heavy squats & deads and the 230# set of bumpers will be plenty.

I got the 260# set (45's, 35's, 25's, 15's, 10's) and almost never use the 35's. I would have been better off getting 4 45's and no 35's even, as 25+10 takes up less space on the bar (Hi-Temps) than a 35 does, but 35+10 takes up more space than a 45 does.
