Hi,

After taking advice and doing a lot of reading I've decided that the Starting Strength program would seem as good a place to start with weight lifting as anything. Bearing that in mind, I have been looking into the cost of the requisite equipment (as I will be doing my workouts at home).

I have come up with the following and would appreciate your comments with regards to their quality and cost:

http://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/olympic_weight_sets/golds_gym_140kg_olympic_ez_grip_weight_set_/10688_p.html

I have looked around Craigslist, Gumtree etc for second hand equipment but have not had any joy. Obviously if I can pick up the equipment for cheaper that would be better! Am I on the right path with the equipment I am looking at?

Thanks!
