[quote] toy bars which are at risk on 150kg+ will become useless sooner than one thinks.
Good to know! So far haven't got over 85kg on anything, but then, it has only been three months!
First time I tried an olympic bar bell for my bench press, I couldn't lift it empty. Seriously. Now my max is fifty kg total, and am planning on adding five to my max in the next few weeks.
And it is only three months since I first lay there on the bench feeling like a girly failure!
It took Neil five years to double his body weight. I bet you can do it too, so invest in your future, and get a decent barbell. Should be worth it.
And post your gains![/list]
