Getting started in weightlifting means that you will probably need some weight lifting equipment. Hopefully you have been looking around for this but I will try to give you a good idea of the equipment that you will need.
First of all there are two kinds of equipment for weight training. There are weights and bars and there is equipment that will help you to use those weights and bars.
Weight training equipment – Weights and Bars
In looking for weights and bars it is a good idea to have
To figure out how much
There are two kinds of bars to worry about, you need a long bar for curls and
Weight training equipment – Support equipment
As far as equipment needed for
* Concentration curls
* One armed rows
* Tricep kickbacks
* And tons more exercises
The other big piece of weight training equipment is the squat rack. A squat rack will help you to stay safe by giving you something to rack your weights before your set as well as a guard at the bottom in case you go too far and can’t get the weight back up. A squat rack can be very expensive so this is not something I would worry about early at home instead just do not go too havy in your squats.

One last option is something like Bowflex. I have known a few people that have gotten Bowflex machines although I have not tried one myself for more than a couple of reps and the great thing about Bowflex is that is will allow you to do dozens of different exercises. The downside though is that these things can be pretty pricey.
To get your weight lifting equipment I have always thought that second hand is best. People go and get equipment and then a year or tow later after it has picked up a lot of dust they decide to sell. Sadly there are always more people looking to get rid of weight lifting equipment than are trying to buy it so you should be able to get a pretty good deal instead of buying the weight lifting equipment new.
