Those bells were made by Ed Jubinville for "New Englands Strongest Man" contest.
125 lbs each. Contestants had to do a 50 yard dash carrying the bells.
My friend Frank C won the event and contest, so Ed gave him the bells.
Frank gave them to me a few years ago.

The Eleiko Olympic bar & plates are said to be among the best in the world, from the early 60's to present day.  The Swedish steel, and matched balance, gives a extra live/spring quality to the bar, and some of the plates are bumper style. More expensive, been told, but very much around today. Have any shot's of some of the original plates/bars back in the day, I wonder. The bars seem to have a much better grip and rotation to them (balance again).

Also any pic's of the Leoko and older Ivanko plates/bars? Talking to other lifters, and most think that the Ivanko doesn't always hold up in quality like some of the other higher priced bars. Any comment? Leoko seems well liked. China makes a very good Olympic set. Thanks again for all the pictures and information.

Stu Hart had a whole set of dumbells casted with 'HART' on them.   when i was hanging out with Jim Neidhardt alot he always said he was going to give me one pair from the set.   Jim ended up back in the states and i never got them.

now Bret Hart trains at my gym, and i mentioned the old set.  turns out a couple of his brothers are scumbags and looted everything from the house before Bret had a chance to even look at anything.

sign of the times there are no more ads in muscle mags for barbells , benches and such. only supplements. they used to say nutrition is 90 percent of bbing so who knows. that and barbells never wear out you buy a set and it lasts supps you have to keep taking

Yep, a supp line can be a cash cow, but most fail within 5 years. Nutrition plays a huge part, but most supps don't feed you at all, so at least start a Firehouse or Musclemaker Grill  ;)
Regarding plates, I guess it's the same as with supps; there's only a serious market for a few large players, like Ivanko, York, Troy, etc..

Waste of money, they are hardly in use and their weight intervals are too large. A short olympic bar & EZ bar are more flexible.

That's not much for a Gold's gym. The same in my gym, and it's often in use on the Scott curl bench, but I don't mind since I'm more into dumbbells.

I don't know about you guys but I find it strange  that some barbell plates and dumbbells feel sort of " alive " and seem to have a feel to them when you use them. You sort of get a connection through the iron that allows you to feel the exercise through the muscles more. It probably sounds bonkers ( crazy ) for non English readers.

I remember when I instructed at Reg Parks gym in Johannesburg, South Africa in the middle to late sixties. all of Reg's weights and equipment were made by a guy called Des Knootze. The dumbells felt good and you got a good response through the muscles, the barbell plates on the other hand felt like lead. Same foundry but a quite different feeling.

Reg had a big mail order/distributer network in South Africa and all of the weights were stored in the celler, two floors below the ground floor of the office block in which Reg had two complet floors, that housed the main bodybuilding gym and above that the Business Men and Womens gym, along with a Judo and Karate gym. Reg was way ahead of the times, as in the business gym all of the clients would have one or other of us instructors as their personal trainer for their workout.   

Any how once a week all the distributer orders had to be carried two floors up from the cellar and loaded onto the Reg Parks Gym truck. Believe me after lugging tons of plates up two floors and loading the truck you were wasted, and it was always early in the morning we did this. Luckily all of us, Reg, the instructors and a few of the competitive bodybuilders trained from six to eight in the morning, so at least we trained first, then completly knackered ourselves out up and down the stairs to the celler.

About 35 years ago I convinced my best mate, double NABBA Universe winner Len Sell, to re-equip his London gym with what was then called Professional Dumbells, you know the kind that the old Iron Man mag used to advertise, black plates that fitted onto chrome knurled handels and the held in place with a large screw in bolt that screwed into the end of the dumbell rod. I ordered them, all 6 tons of them from Taiwan, where, I had found out, was where Iron Man sourced them from. I gotta say they all looked great, racks of new, shiney dumbells that no other gym in the UK had at the time. But, to me they just did not have the " feel " of Lens old ones.

I also loved the dumbells in Vince Girondas gym and in Joe Golds World gym at the end of Main Street, Santa Monica. Some things just feel right, or is it just me thinking this way.

It was in the early nineties that I saw their products for the first time in Ironman magazine. My previous gym had their black Olympic BB plates, unfortunately the coated ones but still great.
