4. USA Sports by Troy Barbell 300 lb. Olympic Weight Set
This isn’t a fancy olympic weight set but it does the job. Weight plates are accurate weight wise. We are a bit worried though about the bar’s durability when lifting over 300 pounds, but for a beginner that doesn’t intend to lift more than 300 lbs this is a great choice for decent price.

3. Rubber Grip Oly Set, Chrome Bar
Another great olympic weight set. The grip when lifting is outstanding and the bar as well the weights are high quality. The only thing we didn’t like about this olympic weight set was that weights are coated in a industrial rubber that have some strong non-pleasant odor. The smell goes away eventually but for some lifters it might be disturbing at first.
2. Rubber Grip Oly Set Weight by Body Solid
This is improved version of 3rd place holder (Rubber Grip Oly Set). Great choice if you are worried about doing damage to your floor as you can safely drop those rubber weights. If you want to improve your overall fitness we would suggest buying 300 lbs version, if you are serious about lifting and want to push your genes to the limit then 500 lbs one is for you.
1. 480 Pound Olympic Set With Bar & Collars by Troy Barbell
The mayor reason we consider this olympic weight set is it’s durability. This bar have been tested up to 1200 lbs without any issues. The product is very high quality and will last for very long time. Many professional athletes chose this olympic weight set for their home gyms.
