Which brand of weights?
Just wondering which brand of plates and dumbells is the most common in the gyms of AR members. My gym has Hampton. Which brand does your gym have?

I don't know, thats a good question.. There is a mix of 3-4 different sets all together.. they are big, we have 100lbs plates, and they are a lil rusty...HAHA, but they do the trick... Our dumbells go to 150's which i'm not 100% impressed with, i've seen 200lbs dumbells in person and those are masterpieces!!!

mine has barbell brand and our bd's go to 125 cause they suck balls...

no idea, all i know is that there's never enough plates to go around.....that's the only drawback to working out at a powerlifting dungeon.

Dunno what brand plates...I'll check. Dumbells go to 225 pounds.

Standard and Ivanko.....but mostly Standard.
Not nearly enough spring collars. I think there's 3 sets in the whole gym.
All in all it's ok, but it needs more. Naturally it caters more to the "family" type of atmosphere, but it's overrun with hardcores. Weird atmosphere really.
And they need bigger dumbells.

not sure...it's a Ballys and they only go up to 120s...which is fine for me currently...but not long term.
they're the rubber padded ones...you know, so you don't disturb any of the cardio queens when you drop the weights...
