Verves prices have absolutely skyrocketed, happy to help look around for a better deal elsewhere if you wantI really need a new barbell to progress my training in the long term. I was thinking of using my tax refund + extra to splurge on this set. My only concern is this: are those plates going to fit on my trap bar fine?
Because I want to eventually use my trap bar, too, once my renovations are complete and I create more space in my workout room. I also want to get some microplates that will fit my trap bar and Olympic barbell once I get one.

Try a double skullcrusher/close grip DB combo for a solid triceps burnThoughts on my exercise selections? My eating and sleeping schedule is all over the place and I just haven't been able to nail down a program for a while. I'm going to go for a while of just not writing anything down (speaking of which, does anyone write down their set/reps/weight numbers before they workout?).
I just want to focus on volume or intensity for a while, maybe a mixture of both if I'm not stupid. But basically my "program" intent is 666, so three full-body workouts.
I'm trying to hit everything. Some feedback would be appreciated.

I see you posted about buying from Sams too, I would buy from them over Verve. I've used Sams since mid 2020 and they only recently had a price increase on their non ATX equipment, but Little Bloke Fitness who I've regularly used for nearly a year for pick up/walk ins did too on plates/dumbbells, so asked the LBF guys and they said shipping containers went up 2.5x the normal price to be shipped, so the price of a few things had to increase to cover costs (think main one was dumbbells went from $3.50 to $4.20 per kilo, but even at $4.20pk they're still better than many suppliers going at $4.50-$5-$6pk)Thanks, mate, that would be appreciated. Strangely enough, I was close to making the purchase yesterday + micro plates but held off. I've looked elsewhere but the prices seem pretty high so far from what I've seen.
Yeah niceI requested a notification for when this is in stock. Bugger it, it's worth it. Still cheaper than the Verve equivalent. I can always buy some 25s and fractional plates later on. The set + the bar is 177.5kg. That'll keep me busy for a while.
