Cracking price for York weights!!!!

Good set of weights. Ideal for beginners. The weights are good quality. Avoid the vinyl weights as they don't last as long and are bulkier. These weights are much more compact so ideal if you have a limited amount of space.

Dont forget: If you buy this you will receive £5 voucher for £50 spend or if you have other items to buy then you may qualify for £10 voucher when spending £100

Thanks to Praksified_T for the voucher reminder

lol...if you would buy these and not use them then you won't use a gym membership either. Save yourself some money and buy these then at least you can eBay them in six months time.

Or better still don't go to the gym and don't buy these either. That way you don't have to deal with the guilt of not exercising and don't even have to carry them from Argos to your car thus saving possible irrepairable damage to your back and joints.
That is what I am going to do, but I repect anyone who can be bothered to do either.

Total weight combination of cast iron discs 40.5kg


40.5kg of weights too split between 2 dumbbells and a barbell? within a few days you will be needing more weights. Why cant they make a cheap kit like this but with 100kg worth of weights? at least then you will have something that will last a good while before you need more weights

I have a set of the dumbells shown here.... If I had to choose again I really wouldnt bother with these and would look a bit harder... Mine somehow corroded/have surface rust (only been inside house so I dont know how!) and also the clamps seem to work themselves loose (even when not in use)... I certainly wouldnt want to lift a Barbell above my head that has these clamps on!!!... I am very surprised with the poor quality from a "top brand" like York... I will probably rust-proof and repaint them eventually, but should I really have to with York weights???
#10
Its good exercise switching weights between bars :D argos sell extra weights very cheaply compared to other retailers if you like. This is a good set for working on your own at home as going heavy isnt a good thing to do without company

Believe me, just because you have a gym membership doesn't mean you will actually go there. Most annual gym memberships don't get used after the third month. You're more likely to use your own equipment at home because it is far more convenient.
#14
way to heavy. i weight 61kg in total
#15
Good kit for the price. Had mine for about 10 years now, and they're still fine, use them few times a week.

Not the heaviest, but you can work around that depending on the exercises you do.

Spinlocks are really irritating when you have so few weights though - if you use the barbells then the dumbell you will need to swap the weights over continuously. The threaded part is way too long, I ended up angle grinding the ends off mine.

it's ok for a starting set, and reasonable price. I wonder where do you go to buy reasonable priced plates? I cant seem to find any cast ion or what ever its made from that cheap.

the reason why is because these are cheap weights for guys who have no clue about weight lifting. if your in any way serious about lifting weights you will want olympic weights. i dont mean if you want to become a pro, i mean if you actually want to improve your muscle mass. these weights are merely a toy and i wouldnt recommend them to anyone wanting to build muscles.

dont make me laugh, york are overpriced mainstream crap. so are golds gym. buying york is like going to argos to buy an engagement ring.

decent manufacturers of weight lifting equipment are: powertec, body solid and bodypower

weights are expensive for a reason, they last a lifetime and dont lose much value.

fitness superstore is one of the best shops around. google it.

also this isnt a good beginner's set, its just a waste of money. get a set of olympic weights from the above store. at leat you could easily re-sell them if you dont use them. nobody would buy those argos weights second hand.

They're hardly a toy mate, they're pretty good for a beginner, just reserved one for my mate.

This weight would be good for Barbell curls, Barbell Rows, Military Press for a beginner. Bench will probably require more weight fairly quick.

If you have the money obviously go for powertec etc but for a beginner this is good.
#25
I agree.

This is great for someone starting out, or someone into general fitness not becoming really big or strong. Not everyone wants that.

Years ago I bought York 50 KGs. When I needed them I would keep buying 20 KG more as I needed them.

For someone that wants to buy something affordable, rather than spend a lot on something they don use this is a great set. As I said above also good for someone into genral health and fitness that doesn't prioritise training.

Too much elitism when it comes to fitness is why so many people don't bother at all, and so many are unhealthy.

I'm telling it how it is.... I started on 70kg at the gym and there are 5'6" midgets there who lift 120kg with ease. You'd have to be Walter the Softy to buy this set.

People - something is better than nothing and if it gets you moving - then your losing fat and improving - and yes they are convenient in the car-port for when you can't get to gym. We all have to start somewhere and its better starting than not!

you clearly have no clue about weights or weightlifting, you showed that by highlighting what i said about york and golds gym.

read this http://forum.bodybuilding.com/forumdisplay.php?f=26

then you might be more experienced to criticise someone on the subject.

you should be able to bench press your own bodyweight if your fit.

as for squatting you should be able to do 1.25x your own bodyweight.

as for deadlifting you should be able to do 1.5x your own bodyweight.

therefore i wouldnt even recommend this set if you were a woman, it isnt good for anything apart from messing about.

if you want to do it for fitness reasons, then buy a skipping rope for £3 and save yourself £57.

You are aware that some people lift weights for other reasons other than turning themselves into knuckle dragging goons with the attitude that matches their ability to post to forums ?

and you sound like you just got into lifting 5 minutes ago. you're naiive- when you grow up you'll realise whats wrong with everything you've said on this thread
#33
This is an excellent starter kit.
I bought this kit four years ago. When you need more weights just buy the 20kg packs.
#34
For starters and those looking for just toning, these are adequate.

For those looking to become professional bodybuilders, these are inadequate

How useful and 'good' they are depends entirely on what you want from them, like some previous posters have said. Now can we please stop this battle of the egos.
