I am in the process of getting a log and I am in need of some weight plates to go with it. I am more than likely going for the JT entry level mini log so I'm looking for plates that fit olympic pins.

I've had a look on ebay and the general seems to be about 80 for 2 x 20kg plates, which I have no idea whether this good or bad to be honest as i've never bought weights before.

So basically i'm asking if anyone has second hand plates for sale or anyone knows if I can get them any cheaper but in a very long winded way Tongue

Powerhousefitness.co.uk 2x20kg plates 53.98 or 2x25's for 74.98. That is for the bodymax olympic plates. I have 265kg of these and they are decent quality and have been taking some hammer deadlifting.

2x20 for 80 is about right really from ebay.
If you look really hard you will be able to get them for about 1.50 per KG.

I've always found it was best to message people selling auction items (rather than buy it now) and offer them a price.

Postage is always a pain so look local where you can to save on that.

free ads paper always has some gems, also have a look on other online sites too.

There are some good websites that sell stuff new, like powerhouse fitness, they have lots of offers on all the time too, so might be worth looking at them. I tihnk the plates arent a normal size but are Oly fitment.

I'm sure it varies during the year, over the last 3-4 years I've never bought more than 1kg per 1 and I've got around 350kg worth of weights at my home gym from Ebay.

Those are all second hand plates mind, not your fancy new ones!

IIRC I've always ended up paying about 1 per 1lb.
This time around I bought coloured, rubber plates which were a lot more but I don't expect to ever replace them.

powerhouse fitness or fitness superstore were the cheapest when i bought mine.

i got a couple of things from both cos some stuff was cheaper on 1 site n other stuff cheaper on the other. i cant remember which 1 was cheaper for the plates tho. check both as they might have a bulk package or sale offers etc.

I dot know what weight the log is but if you get 20's might only have 70kg empty log and 110kg

So might be worth some 5's and 10's
