    rack or lifting partner???

    I couldn't hardly lift anything, because i had bring it up the front and over my head. It was really hard to get any decent weight on it. My first purchase once i get the money is a rack, but what should i do until then???

    I don't have the time or the money right now for the gym honestly. I have several big ticket items i'm trying to sell right now, so when they go i will be able to buy one. Anyone need a 55 gallon fish tank or a big older wood burner???

    Not really able to. Only 2 in town, one is crazy expensive and made more for women, and the other is the community center which is always packed.

    Buy a rack. They're cheap. I have this one:

    http://newyorkbarbells.com/92563.html

    $299, free freight. It's great quality. I've had it for over a year and beat on it three days a week.

    The good thing about it is: I CAN CURL IN IT!! :naughty:

    I picked up my rack from Craigslist. It is a rack from newyorkbarbells.com and so I paid very little for mine (it was easy to talk him down when I showed him I knew exactly which rack he had and how much he paid for it).
