I'm looking into getting a (reasonable priced) bumper plate set for my garage gym.
Anyone have any experience with ironcompany.com?
I found this package deal on bumper plates with shipping included Bumper Plate Package Deal and was wondering if anyone had any opinion on the website, or the brand of bumper plate (KRAIBURG)?
I don't know about the website, but I've used that brand before - they were fine. Definately don't forget to figure shipping when you are shopping for an order like that...
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Thanks for the reply Sensei.
This set includes:
2-10 lb. plates
2-15 lb. plates
2-25 lb. plates
2-35 lb. plates
2-45 lb. plates
$549.00 and it says shipping is included. I thought this was kind of cheap since the price includes shipping, but since you have actually used the brand before, I am a little less concerned.
Anyone else have any input?
yes if that is including shipping it seems pretty cheap to me. I have priced them before and I dont remember anything that reasonable.
I always wanted to find a high school that was getting new equip and try to buy their old stuff. that way you could get a platform too.
i would just get a couple 45s, then if you add weight it will always be smaller in diameter then the 45 so it doesnt touch the floor
