    Gym finally bought 110, 115 lbs dbs...but forgot 105's

    D'oh! Do any of you guys have experience with this in your gyms...there's a gap now between 100 and 110 for dbs.

    My gym's go up to 100's in 5 lbs increments, then 10 lbs up to 150's. You'll just have to deal with it.

    Get some PlateMates or some other brand of magnetic weights.

    My gym goes up to 130s in 5lb increments all the way up. And some of the heavier ones have rubber small plates on the ends (not really sure why). That would be difficult to use the magnetic plates on them...

    Damn! I hate it when that happens!
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    actually the 2nd thing isn't far off. Not on benching of course...a bench jockey's got that right now...but pretty much everything else.

    And latty, yes, I can use them. For seated extensions for one thing, for flat db pressing before the summer's over, and for shrugs.

    I had them covered in pink rubber just for me.

    I have never seen any DB heavier than 75lbs... I imagine those 150's look kinda freaky
