Re: garage equipment

Im buying the pullup bar from Again Faster todwy. They added the pull up bar to there cyber deals for $79 cant beat it. Im also going to get one or two kettlebells. Ive never used kettlebells and one recommendation was 53lbs is that too much for a beginner or should I go with some diff weights. I have 300 pounds and a Olympic bar some im going to hold off on the bumper plates for now. I also have adjustable dumbbells too. Thanks for the help guys you guys are great.

Re: garage equipment

Here's how I look at weights:

All zorks are quorks, but not all quorks are zorks... In other words, you can bench bumper plates, but you can't drop steel. At some point, you'll want bumpers, so might as well start with them.

If your "MMA mats" were thick enough to protect a dropped bar, then they wouldn't be very appropriate to stand on for lifting (too much squish, not a solid enough foundation).
