Weights and barbells

Options
With gyms showing no sign of reopening soon - looking to buy some weights (was going to go cast iron for cost saving), squat rack/bench press combination and 7ft olympic 20kg barbell. I've been lifting weights for several years. I've checked a few times during covid and everywhere is sold out. I've been looking on eBay, marketplace and gumtree as well. Any ideas of websites that may have availability?

    Unfortunately, you'll have a hard time looking for some weights, especially during this pandemic days. You just have to wait and be patient.

    No idea on barbells, but I bought dumbbells in store from Decathlon Weight Training 20 kg Threaded Weights Kit Domyos - Decathlon

    They do have some barbells in stock actually

    The original post is from 2020 so I would assume the poster has found what they were looking for
