I decided that if I am stuck inside much of the time during this pandemic to go ahead and start working out. I was doing 5K races, but right now its not safe.

Is anyone else noticing a shortage of iron weights or if you can find them they are just stupidly over expensive? Where you guys finding yours right now?

Buy off eBay or kijiji

Weights don’t go bad and they can be sanitized

Unfortunately they are mostly plastic coated concrete unless you can pick them up at a yardsale, school board auction, or be willing to pay a premium for them.

Yup. Happened with COVID. I'm guessing sites like amazon deemed them really really un-essential, so they aren't being moved in/out/around warehouses. So you get assholes trying to sell single plates for 90 bucks...
