Every so often, i have to tear my hair out and work out what new equipment to buy, and where to buy it from. I must write my views on bits of paper and then loose them as, once again, I need to add to our stock of bumper plates and bars and i dont know who to go to.
I think we need to get 6 x olympic 7ft bars (20kg) and 2 Ladies bars ( normally 15kg if you can get them), and i think we need 2 sets of 25kg bumper plates ( just to keep Efe and Jannis happy) and probably 3 or 4 more sets of 20kg as more and more of our client hit RX workouts.
For the astute ones amoung you, you will notice we are on the verge of running short of 5ks, or at least we have a pile of 5kgs from Jordans that broke as soon as we got them. Ive been told we can expect replacements soon, as well as a replacement of the Jordan bar (that everyone liked). Zak told me other had the same problem so it looked like a faulty batch.
That said the Black bumpers supplied by wolversons look to good value, and the bar they sent seems to be standing up well.
We have not yet evaluated much of the York stuff ( we have some stands and sone 5k discs)
So we need to get lots of quotes. This is where you can help. If you find a source can you get the price (including vat!!) and a estimate of cost, and a link
Required in the next few weeks, quotes on
so 6 x 20k olympic weight lifting bars
2 x 15kg olympic weight lifting bars
2 x 2 sets of 25kg ( ie 4 bits in total)
4 x 2 sets of 20kg ( ie 8 bits)
