Tempted to get them myself, but already have plenty, £6.66 per disc , just trying to think of an reason to buy them

don't want but would buy to see the staff lift them around the store.

Where do you get a bar for them and some spinlocks?

Are these suitable for induction hobs?

The hole is one inch... so you can use either a barbell or dumbbell bar with them

this sort of thing

amazon.co.uk/Yor…bar

you can get cheaper vinyl plates, but they are bulkier, you can fit more cast iron plates on a bar. If you are getting them for dumbbells, you would probably be better off with the 5KG plates as they are smaller, 10KG plates would be pretty huge for a dumbbell

I've had a few giggles when buying cast iron weights from Argos and some skinny lad has picked them up off the belt and his knees are knocking together when walking them to the counter lol

I am so tempted. Max my bar out at 105kg, and already got one set of 10kg. So dont think I want 8 plates in total.
I guess could sell a set, but i wonder how much for? Having said that, we would be quicker for taking them on and off.

I've got this, recommended, although after I got into it I wish I'd gone for olympic sized weights/bar instead

This is a great price, at decathlon I've bought 20kg plates at £30 a pop....

I had the same experience when a deal for those 4 * 5kg plates where on here for silly money. She struggled like anything, bless her. Sounds like she stronger than that stick boy

But these weights are 1" not 2" like Olympic ones. So your post is irrelevant to the deal
Having said that, that price for 20kg is good

I think this would be the main reason why I'm not tempted... I don't want the embarrassment of not being able to carry them to the car!

I don't see why it's irrelevant, the bar I posted is 1", I was just saying that after getting into weights I wished I'd not made the purchase of 1" weights/bar in the first place. If someone's thinking about getting started with their own set of free weights, it's something to look into/consider before purchasing.

Thought the deal was from buttons from glancing at the pic, need me a deal on specs

Olympic is great, and i dont disagree with you. But the cost of them, is never cheaply found. Thats what i am saying.

20kg i agree with you. 60kg, well it awkward to carry. But I have had an idea. Take them out of the box, and slide them on to a bar you either bought or took to store. Allot easier for you.

Finally, some weight to challenge the pre teen - girls ;~)

Sweet deal - thanks for posting !!

I was tempted to ask the lad to carry them to the car for me but I feared he may of snapped oO

this may sound a ridiculous question but if i have no room in my house for a bench and rack is it still worth buying a barbell and these weights or will it be too dangerous and also majorly limit the exercises you can do with it? currently have dumbells and a pull up bar and getting by with the old push ups but this looks like it would be another challenge

Honestly yes to both of those. You'd only really be able to safely do things that start on the floor like deadlift, barbell row etc and really you buy a bar for squat and bench. No room in a garage for a squat rack? I have this, well happy with it.

thanks, probably yes but it would be a case of 'out of sight out of mind' as my garage isnt the nicest place to go so it would be a waste of money really. need something staring me in the face!

Yes Sure. google.co.uk.

Seems like a forum to swap stories about how much stronger HUKD members are than Argos Saturday staff.
Well done everyone.

Great deal by the way, thank you OP.

Good deal. Any recommendation on a bar to go with it?

Just curious, at what weight did you find it starting to become a problem? I'm squatting anything up to 150kg, tempted to get some cheap for home and I'm happy enough if they aren't quite up to that but if the 1 inch diameter bars start having trouble around the 60/80 range it's kinda not going to work out so well.

Bars are all different, some are designed to flex etc, just wondering what ballpark you got to for wishing you'd gone with olly.

Just looked on Amazon amazon.co.uk/Yor…ell 125kgs weight limit

Or this amazon.co.uk/spo…ell 159kg limit
Edited by: "mfactor" 29th May 2015

Anything under £1 per kg for metal weights is a good deal - I own a gym and have 80kg of these weights and they are perfect for the standard size gym bars where you can easily get 4 plates on each side - anyone who is lifting heavier will probably be using an Olympic bar anyway - heat

Great deal,ordered 4x10kg and 4x5kg bargain

No, I don't work at Argos, I'm actually a little worried about the welfare of the staff who are going to be picking my 120kg order tomorrow.

I'm in the same position and I do ok, use my bed as a bench and do dumbell press over the edge of the bed for full ROM instead of bench press and just lift the weight onto my back to do squats, haven't hurt myself yet

That's a deal , you probably make a profit by selling all that iron to the scrap man lol joking ;-)
