    I need to buy an olympic barbell.

    I don't care about the length particularly but it needs to be able to hold olympic plates. I'm not going to use it much honestly, I just need one in my house for hip thrusts and maybe the occasional bench press workout.

    I'm not good at online shopping but I want to get a good price - could someone point me in the right direction?

    Ha, maybe in Bakersfield. I would be willing to drive a pretty good distance but there are no good deals in my area - most people are selling "standard" barbells (those skinny, pussy ones that can't even hold olympic plates) and everyone wants to sell what they have as a set. The cheapest BB I found on craigslist costs well over $100 and comes with a bench and a bunch of weights that I don't need...
    I'll definitely keep checking that, though
