Normally, the OSR500S Rubber Grip Olympic Setw ith Chrome Bar comes in three packages having different weight options, starting from 300lbs, 400lbs and 500lbs. Hereby, it is suggested for beginners to go for 300lbs package more because the number of plates in them is less and you’ll be able to use them in your working regularly, despite having more plates in remaining two packages which you are not using in your workout and they are getting wasted eventually. The weight plates of the package in any set, comes in a small palletized crate on which the plates are arranged according to their weight Sets Reviews  starting from lowest to the top in ascending order. However, a pallet jack is required to make them come on your house door since the crate size is eventually heavy. There is one separate package for the bar along with spring lock collars, the bar comes in single piece. The bar is however very solid and hence it can withstand weight up to 700lbs.

Final Verdict and Review

There were some minor issues though when I first receive them like the smell of rubber was very strong from the plates and they were looking a bit oily too. But from time that smell also fades eventually or in any case if they don’t, then it is suggested to wash them with vinegar or dish soap then keep them dry for a day or two.

I was very happy with the purchase because everything came in with a fresh extravagant quality and there wasn’t anything busted in my shipment, which was good. The bar is very heavy and strong which can withstand a lot of weight. Keeping aside the issue of starting  set and the fact slowing down of workout by spin lock collars, the weight set by TNP Accessories are highly recommended for any beginner. Its price, its quality, its Weight Sets Reviews 2018 all are phenomenal and have the ability to surpass any weight set available in the market that are specifically designed only for beginners. Overall my verdict and the reviews of users on internet are very positive. While also working with the bench, it’s an ideal set for beginners. The barbell is very solid and quite easy to assemble. It can even have more additional weights then the weights which are provided with the package. Hence, big things short, great value of money!
