[Best Buy] Weider 100lb vinyl weights + Bar $99.99

I don't know how these can possibly be in stock and shipped at this price? But it seems like a pretty good deal.

Weider vinyl weights - 100 lb weights + bar, shipped by best buy to your door for $99.99 and in stock

How is it people aren't jumping on this? I just bought a 35lb kettlebell from amazon and that cost me almost the same.


I bought 1 set but wanted peoples' opinions, should I splurge for the canadian tire 110 lb set (cast iron) - but that set counts the bar as 30lb + 80 lb in weight plates so it's kinda scammy and $197 + tax.

But there is stock of that as well, and it's the olympic bars. Not sure of the difference.
(as of posting, there are at least 8 of the CAP olympic sets in the north GTA region).


Both sets use multi-piece barbells (not single piece) but I don't think that's a real concern for the weights I'm planning to push.


Ok guys, go crazy, comments appreciated.


I don't lift heavy. Already have 2x 50lb powerblocks at home so I have some second thoughts about whether I even want the barbell. But at < $1/pound. Unheard of since this pandemic started.



UPDATE @ 2 am
** sorry guys - 2 am and it's sold out

So i bought this about 15 years ago. The bar comes in 2 pieces and you literally smash one into the other. There is a hump in the middle of the bar where you connect them. It is kind of uncomfortable for squats. Other than that worked as its supposed to

Uh, in case peoples' sarcasm radar is broken.

The Rogue competition plates are awesome. They are also $5/pound + shipping and not the direct competitor to this set.

In case my sarcasm radar is broken. Yes, weight = WEIGHT. Your muscles don't care and they work as well.

100lb is good for the average joe for high rep exercises?

intensity! you can make a 5 lbs dumbell feel like 100 lbs if you get creative with more sets, less reps, harder exercises etc
equipment should never be the barrier to you getting healthier/stronger!

"vinyl weights" so it means they're cement/concrete weights coated in vinyl?
