I looked everywhere in my town for an olympic bar and some plates, but no luck. Theres a brand new USA Sports 300 pound set at Scheels for $160. I saw some on Ebay for less, but would then cost $100 to ship and they're used.

Im gonna be using them for O-lifts on a dead grass spot in our yard) and Im guessing bumper plates wouldn't be neccessary?


Any suggestions on obtaining an O set?

Cheers

Roy

Roy,
Check the newspaper and yard-sales (probably won't find any until spring). I picked up a lot of equipment cheap this way.

For O-lifts I would highly advise getting a pair of 25 pound or 10kg rubber composite bumpers, even if you are going to be lifting on grass. They'll expand your options considerably and they only run about $100 a pair.
