        it will have no resell market when you need to upgrade so you basically pissed away $100 on garbage

              i mean you shouldnt expect to get msrp selling anything used but i'd have no problem selling a $100 for $70 and it would be gone same day

              Why sell it. Keep the shitty ones for landmines.

              Proper monetary allocation for home gym equipment is below. Anyone that disagrees is a pole smoking gay.

              Bench
              Cage
              Barbell
              Weights

          It will likely last you a long time, it you aren't doing 3pl8 or doing 4pl8 all the.time it's fine, they all bend it eventually, some sooner than others

    Better to get gaining muscle now rather than waiting for the perfect piece of equipment, buy cheap, use now, save up, sell cheap one, buy better one.

    don't buy a barbell
    you won't develop your chest and you will break your back, or even worse, have a nice day
    buy a pair of 90lbs adjustae dumbbels and a bench and you're set.

    No, you cant. Want to be a garden gnome about it? Have fun racking a bent bar.

    Buy once cry once. Buying a cheap barbell is like building a stem wall or foundation for your house and skimping on the rebar. Plus it should last a lifetime.

    If you're fine with understanding that you will have to buy a new one down the line no matter what, then go for it. Just make sure the tensile strength isn't low enough that it'll kill you until you get a better quality one.
    At that point you can use the shitty one for rack pulls or landmines until it's too fucked to use
