Adjustable Dumbbells


New member
Hey Guys,
Gym membership is up. Wasting money going to that joint.
Wondered what thoughts you guys might have on adjustable dumbbell sets?
Any brands etc?\

Get a power rack with a barbell instead.
Dumbells are good but you will be limited with exercise options. Squats, deads etc.

If, by adjustable dumbbells, you mean stuff like the PowerBlock/Bowflex types, don't waste your money. They're far too expensive for the weight range... aside from any "personal" preference as to how convenient you find them, only a few brands (like PowerBlock and IronMaster) are any good and they cost way too much to justify not just buying some plates, collars and bars.

... but if you really want to buy them, PB and IM are the way to go.
