    all you really need to train at home is an oly bar and lots of weight, preferably bumper plates and a platform so you could drop the weight. thats all weightlifters used to use as equipment. a power rack and bench for the more traditional bb'er/pl'er stuff.

    The only problems I have with ebay.co.uk, is that most people can't afford to ship equipment to you, and my parents have just separated and my Dad was the only one who drived, and I only have a 50cc scooter for transport.

    That's OK. When you buy your oly bar, just pretent you're jousting!

    Don't you have a mate that you could ask for a help? Don't forget to pay for the petrol though.


    Heh, I'm an American that just used the words "mate" and "petrol". I feel cool.

    well if it came frommthe U.S the shipping cost would be more then the exercise equipment itself. Find yourself a sporting goods store there in the UK.
