just got a great deal -- 375 pound olympic set for $75!! Could not pass it up. Added two $20 sawhorses with screws popped up to prevent rolling. Bench and squat racks came with the standard weight set -- two standard bars with 270 pounds (not pictured); cost was $50 for everything. Check it out:

Andrew,
(start sarcasm)How rude, at least you could have had the decency to keep that to yourself.(end sarcasm) I am green with envy. Why is it that I can imagine you dancing a jig when you got it all home. Great score!

Yeah but mine has cargo pants so...game over unfortunately. ;-)

You tried setting the weight on those sawhorses yet? How does it work?

matt,

yeah, the saw horses seem very sturdy. I think if I had to drop weight from overhead everything would be fine -- assuming I could control the bounce. hopefully that won't ever happen. should work well for dumping squats and bench presses if the need arises.

pierre,

no sir, those are York Barbell squat racks, the real deal.

Andrew, I got the very same horses. Check out the response from Tim Triche on how to beef them up, very good stuff.
