I have some equipment I mostly keep outside, but am now looking to invest in 2 rather expensive pieces. First a Concept2 (I will just keep this one folded up in my shed). Second a weight set...any suggestions? I don't want to haveto keep moving it in an out (for obvious reasons.) Plyo boxes, jump ropes, med balls, bands, kettlebells, rings ect are easy to move in and out. the pull up bar and climbing rope stay outside...can i keep an olympic bar etc outside?

I've kept my olympic set outside (under a tarp) for about 6 months now. Weather has ranged from 100+ degrees to freezing, from dry to swamp-like to mini-hurricane. It's developed a bit of surface rust. Easily fixed with steel wool. I use a fair amount of WD-40 on the non-knurled bits.

And it's just a $100 set, so who cares?

I would be a LOT more particular with a nice bar and plates, such as a waterproof shed or box with a desiccant.
