    Sure, why not. You can always upgrade in a couple years.

    Make sure they weigh what they are supposed. There was a thread in the general section called "weigh your weights!". Someone had bought a cheap 45 lb plate that actually weighed like 41 lbs. Watch out!

    Join a gym, or lift at your school.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    since your a beginner you dont know if you'll stay with lifting. most people will give it up after a month or 2 (usually after newyears resolutions). so start by working out at school or at a gym.
