My family and I finally moved and now I can buy the equipment I want to start my home gym and I want to buy the 16/24/32k set, and considering it's only $177 without the 20% discount for CFers I was wondering if I should just buy two sets of the 16/24/32's since I'll eventually buy another set at one point or another?

Forget the KB's and get Bumpers from BFS instead. Get a bar while your at it.

Some of the RKCs here have said the Gill kettlebells(I am guessing this is where you are buying from) are really only good for swings because of a difference in shape, so I think they might not be the best type to get two each of.

Josh- I do second that. If you don't have bumpers now is a great time to get them before the sale ends on Wednesday.

how often is the price for bumpers this low at bfs? does it ever get lower? also is the standard olympic bar good enough for me? it costs $99 and i like that price, 300+ os way too much for me for a bar, and i want a 45 lb

Find a Play It Again Sports store and get the best bargain you can find, if it breaks, get another out of the savings you'll be accumulating toward the real thing. Just try to find one with smooth rolling action.

I found a rusty relic for $30.00, and I don't
care if I break it, but it's turning out to be a real champ: More of an Olympic Weightlifter than I am.

Bumpers & Bar before KBs, IMO.

BTW, the bars at BFS were also on sale when I placed my order last week.

Jeez...enough acronyms for ya?
