Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym.

Let's see your KG plates!

Some recent threads got me thinking about Olympic plates in kilogram (KG, Kg, or kg) weights. Here in 'Murica, we often talk about plates with Imperial system (pounds) weights, but not everybody is from 'Murica. And you all don't necessarily have plates in pounds. So, let's see your Kg plates! ...

Anyone have thoughts/experience with Ivanko SDH-U adjustable dumbbell?

I'm currently using some old 1" spinlock adjustable dumbbells. I wrapped some hockey tap around the grip to thicken it and eliminate the awful aggressive knurling. The DBs work fine and I like the security of the spinlock, but it is a bit time consuming to change weights/ I don't do rapid sets...
