I know that a lot of people like to lift outdoors or keep their weights in a garage that is not heated or cooled. How do you keep your bars and weights from rusting? It is especially a problem in the deep south where the humidity is high year round. Anyone have a good solution for cleaning up rusted weights to make them look new?

Rick, the better bars rust a little and stop, they just turn brown and they're okay from then on. Car wax should help too, it's not too slippery and lasts a long time. There are rags treated with chemicals you can get at gun shops that work great, but they leave a little bit of a slippery film.
