small weights

hi,

im looking for small weights 0.5kg-1kg to add onto an oly bar about 2'' thick in my gym, the weights have to be big enough to fit on the bar, or attach to them.

anyone know where i can get something like this, or how i can add the extra weight on the bar somehow?

cheers pals!

    Those Watsons look too expensive!

    Aahaha, washers. I knew there was something funny and obscure I could use. Wouldn't the washers weigh like 100g a piece? I'd need to solder about 900 of them, ha.

    Cheers pal.

    tape some washers on to a magnet, weigh it all up, stick it to the weight and you're set!

    You could just buy some wrist/ankle weights and strap them around the ends of the bar.

    Apparently Bruce Willis uses paint cans to add a little extra weight to his bar.

    It's true, I've seen it with my own eyes.

    Supermarket near me has 0.5kg plates for 50p(ish)

    Bargain. They wont fit an Oly bar though, only, er non oly bars?

    I often think about selling them on online. Cos people always seem to ask about them.
