Need equipment? (Particulary Olympic Lifting)
« on: October 20, 2006, 01:16:40 PM »
I recommend Glenn Plendlay

As many Olympic Lifters know, the bar is a crucial piece of equipment during the lifts. Don't skimp on it! On that note, most will come to be ~700 dollars. I found Glenn's website through various other lifting sources (FortifiedIron, Crossfit, etc.), and I gave his equipment a look. I ordered a set of bumpers from him, and the Pendlay bar (only $350), which is AWESOME. Great spin, nice feel, looks nice, the knurling is just right I think, it's just a great bar. Of course if you want to splurge about 700 bucks (without shipping) for an Eleiko by all means go ahead, but I'd look into this first. If you're not looking for a bar with IWF Competition required bar dimensions, I'd inquire about the Crossfit bar if it's still availabe. But, besides a UPS problem all went well and I'm definately pleased with everything.

If you decide to order anything, let him know Dave Winchester referred you.
