    My buddy got a back injury and he's going to give me his universal bar and weights. Only problem is there's some rust on the bar (chrome) and weights (iron).

    What's the best substance to clean both of them off without too much fuss?

    Steel wool and a light oil. Works on my old guns, it will work on weights.

    OR YOU CAN MAN IT UP AND CHEW THE RUST SPOTS OFF

    I was going to use steel wool and then use some kind of clear coat to keep it from happening again.

    I think that between IT crew, Gun crew, and Fitness crew - I like dealing with fitness crew the least.

    Fitness crew is mean but funny. It's like a bunch of little wanna be Batemans running around, especially GTLifter.

    I'm not elite, don't claim to be. I am finally approaching skinny fat instead of fat fat though, so that's something.
