Recommend me a shop that has stock and is reasonably priced! I have everything else, just need some weights now. Everywhere I've been local has either bugger all stock or wants to charge $50 per 20kg O.o
Somewhere around Brisbane, preferably southside but I go east, north and west all the time. Thankyou in advance.

2nd hand. I bought mine on the cheap from qgl/reddit. You're not going to find anything cheap retail.

Southside fitness. $50 per 20kg sounds about right (Iron as a raw material is not free) unless you get second hand.

Or wait until after new years when everyone gives up on their resolutions to get a good deal.

Haven't been able to lift weights in about decade because of a screwed shoulder. Didn't realise they had gone up that much. If that's the price that is what I'll pay.
Secondhand doesn't really suit me due to pickup times, so who has stock? Everywhere I've been has had one 20kg, three 10's, one 5, etc.

When I go diving I collect all the sinkers that Fishers have lost, then I melt them down and make my own dive weights. But if you have to buy some I guess Adreno would be as cheap as anywhere.

Every man and his dog are into exercise these days so it's gonna be hard finding somewhere cheaper than $50 for 20kg. Just think of it as an investment and suck it up and buy what you need. If you're just starting out you don't need a crapload of weights anyway. If you're just getting back into it, buy small and werk your way up. You'll prolly hurt yourself if you start lifting big. Last thing you need is something like tennis elbow which is a f*****g pain in the ass.

Yeah started a couple of weeks ago, going up slowly, and doing lots of different lifts rather than heavy. Was more so I don't have to swap weights between equipment at this stage.

So you are going to Prison soon ?

Whats the point of bulking up ?
If you get violent you will likely severely hurt someone and you go to Court maybe Jail. Lots of lifting weights in Prison.
If you lift then give it up you put on extra weight.
Your Penis shrinks.
Gay guys begin checking out your body.
(Not that theres anything wrong with that)

Im attracted to Female bodies, not my own Body.

Nope, don't think prison is on my immediate agenda.

You can do weights without bulking up.
I am big and strong anyway, just rebuilding lost muscle mass in private at home in a convenient manner before returning to sport. I do a lot of physical activities and exercises, but weights are the best way for me to rebuild certain parts of my body.
Might stop the screams your mum gives when I 'accidentally' slip.
I don't mind gay guys checking me out, happens anyway.
It's important to me to be reasonably fit and healthy in both mind and body.

Got all my weights and quipment from them. Good prices IMO. If you buy a few they might offer cheaper than the $2.50/kg for the iron plates. Extra for the rubber coated ones. Call em if you wanna check but everytime ive gone there they've had plenty of stock. They have shops @ Strathpine, Mt Gravatt n Gold Coast.
Over time ive amassed:
2x 25kg
18x 20kg
10x 10kg
14x 5kg
6x 2.5kg
6x 1.25kg
2x 0.5kg

Awesome pic rev, lol.

Faceman, f*****g clueless as usual.
