Favorite exercise equipment
I am just starting out with lifting and do not really know a lot about equipment. I want to know what everyone's favorite equipment is so I can get an idea about what things are.

Barbell and plates. After that, a nice squat rack to keep my from getting squished if I do something stupid with the bar on my back.

depending on what your looking to do it varies. Army Basic taught me that you can accomplish a lot with just the body your born with and some running shoes. If your looking to build muscles start with an olympic set and work on the basics. Also having a computer as you obviously have is an awesome training tool, when I started in the 80's you got info from your dad, friends, coaches , etc. and books. Now you have info galore and the ability to bounce your ideas, questions, off a wide audience and find what is best for you saving you a whole lot of pain, suffering, and wasted effort. With that in mind you might want to start out with Starting Strength, by Rippetoe. Great website and great book.
