    Best:
    Oly. barbell, 255 lbs. in plates, squat rack, starting strength book

    With Rippetoe's SS, you're gonna need a helluva lot more than 255 lbs., especially if you drink the milk like he suggests.

    no way you can use more than half of the 255 at any one time
    If you weigh anywhere between about 150 and 255, deadlifting 255 is not too bad.

    Why would you buy only what you can lift? Jesus...
    +1, buy double

    Best: APC New Standards

    Worst: Probably a pair of Incotex that are a tad too tight. I bought these during the late summer Incotex craze. Chalk it up to a lesson learned.

    I deadlift 210 now; am still going up 5 lbs./week.

    Exactly

    Well, including the bar, I've got 300 lbs. Milk or no milk, that should last me another couple months. [​IMG]
