Author Topic: Adjustable dumbells or not?  (Read 3910 times)

I was thinking about getting a set of adjustable dumbells and was hoping the good people on here could recommend a set, I'd love a full rack of made up ones but it wouldn't be practical although it is possible. If the adjustable ones are that bad then I think I will give up the space to a rack and save up the cash but if people tell me the adjustables are easy to use and nice to handle then I'd rather save the space and cash.
At the moment I'm messing about with spin locks and Olympic dumbells which are a pain if your trying to do drop sets, also they are not the easiest thing to get into position with when you are training on your own, with the pre made ones you can rest them on your legs whilst leaning back etc.
all advice welcome. Thanks

The Ironmaster quick lock ones are good, apparently. I haven't used them but know people who have them in their home gym. Lee Priest uses them too if that helps?!

People love Bowflex and Power Blocks. At least, they used to. Don't hear much of them anymore.

Spin lock dumbbells dig into your thighs bad on the way up once they're heavy don't they!

Honestly I would get fixed weight Ines to cover around 25-30kg + and use adjustable upto that point as really it's only when pressing you need to kick them up off the thighs.
