What are your objectives? Generally speaking I would stay away from an Argos weights set regardless of the aims you have, there will be better equipment available.Evening all, just looking for a spot of advice. I'm just starting out, building muscle and have been using a pull up bar and press ups but feel like I need to step it up, so looking at weights. Does this seem like a decent this to purchase or would something else be more beneficial? Buy Opti Vinyl Barbell and Dumbbell Set - 50kg | Dumbbells | Argos
Any advice welcome.
But, we really need to know what your objectives in "building muscle" are - could you explain please?
Personally I am running almost everyday now as my sciatica has relented after 3 years, and I used to run a lot before I injured my back. So I am down to 12.13st on a morning and benching 100kg x3 as max sets which I am very happy with at this weight. Unfortunately I am not deadlifting (at all) or squatting (heavy) as I don't want to place the weight on my lower back. I am doing a lot of reps with 60-80kg squats and mostly work on the leg press.
I feel great! Thank fuck sciatica is going.
