Yeah, coated weights are the way to go, unless they're living their life in a garage where floor damage isn't a concern. Of course, they are more
expensive if you get the coated ones. Remember, that set that you are looking at, you'll have to buy two sets in order to have a max of 45lbs per
If you're willing to shell out a couple hundred on them, though, they should work perfectly.
What type of resistance training do you do? Do you ever use a straight bar, or easy-curl bar, or anything like that? If not, that's fine, but if you
evolve into using those types of bars, like I said, these weights can be used on them, too.
I'll be doing a similar purchase like you probably this late spring. I'm moving into a house that has a large garage again, so I'll be hopefully
getting these products (or something similar, if I can find them used--Craigslist is your friend, sometimes):
Bar + Weight
And probably the dumbbell set that I shared with you.
I'm not brand loyal, these were all within easy searching while on that site, but that half rack is really what I'm looking for.
Regardless, enjoy your lifting!
