They have shaved a lot of time of my work outs and, especially if you're doing something like P90X or circuit training, you can expect to save a lot of time because you won't constantly be changing plates.
The weight change mechanism is simple and relatively safe to use... Although this is perhaps the one area the weights could be improved.
The mechanism is plastic and would be better if it was slightly more solid but it doesn't feel to flimsy - the inner working of it are metal at least, it's just the dials which are not.
Weights are selected by depressing a little red button on each dumbell and turning the dial to the desired weight. The total weight is clearly marked, making selection easy, and I think this is a better system than on. Som either selectable dumbells (although I've never used them myself) like the pullout bars on powerblocks and the latch system on other sets.
You also get a good range of weight with these dumbells going all the way up to 32KG. That's significantly more than other sets and works out a lot cheaper than, say, buying a set of stage 1 and stage 2 Powerblocks. The weight increments that are selectable are listed for you at the bottom of this review.
I like the look of them too. They are a kind of copy of the Bowflex weights, but again I think these are slightly better because although they might not look quite as cool they are actually better quality and better to use. I say this because they are a bit shorter in length than the Boxflex weights and the plates are made from metal not plastic.
Some minor problems with them I have encountered are:
The dumbells turning themselves upside down when used on their lowest setting. That's because, at 5KGs, there is no plate on the weight - you are in effect just using the handles - and these are slightly top heavy due to the selectabell mechanism, so have a tendency to flip round on you.
The plates do rattle a little, but I don't really mind this and much prefer it to the old problem I had which was collars coming lose mid set. Also the trays the weights sit in are plastic which feels a bit cheap... It keeps weight and cost down though I suppose.
Although there is a good range of weights I would have liked to have seen a little more range between the range if you will - for instance, at the lower end of the spectrum the settings jump from 12.5kg to 15kg which is quite a lot... It would have been nice to have the options of slightly smaller increments between weights.
The weights do get stuck every now and then when going in and out of the plate tray, but this is easily overcome with a little wiggling and the more you use them and become familiar with them, the less this happens: it's a matter of technique.
On the plus side though, the dumbell handles feel just right. They are a nice size to wrap your hand around and have rubber detailing to aid grip too. Also, a neat little design feature is the flat bottom edge to the weights - this means they stay in place and don't roll off when placed on the ground.
The weights are best combined with the weight stand but that's sold separately. However, I was lucky enough to get mine as a bundle from a friend who is a championship body builder and owns a fitness shop, and it was on his advice that I got these. I had done a lot of research on the subject of selectable weights as they ain't cheap and I must say I found the choice perplexing.
On the one hand I liked the look of the Bowflex but heard they could be awkward to use and the Powerblocks could get expensive when you start going up in weight... In the end I decided on a set of Powerblocks so went to him to buy them and he said that, out of all of them in his shop, he would recommend these.
He said, they are heavier, better quality, easier to use and that they would be his recommendation. I must say that so far I am very pleased I took his advice. The look great, are nice to use and have reduced my workout time significantly -- or rather, reduced the amount of time spent screwing and unscrewing collars and changing plates significantly, allowing me to keep up the work rate and concentrate on the task at hand - busting out reps!
Selectable weight increments:
5kg (bar alone)
12 weights in 1 (to buy a complete set of separate weights to do the same is around £900!)
Weight selection is simple, press the red button, turn the dial to the required weight and lift from holders.
You can feel the weight lock into position.
Its such a time saver when your working out.
I have been using these for P90X3 workouts.
Its easy to hold 1 dumbbell with both hands at each end while doing Ab Ripper X. Plenty of grip.
Being able to adjust weight by 2.5 kg is handy, for some exercises you want more weight, others a lighter weight is required.
The weights are very well balanced.
Build quality is superb.
Handles are comfy.
They don't take up much space.
Height of the stand is perfect for working out.
I think these will last a long long time.
One thing to be aware of is that sometimes when you go from heavier to lighter weight, the outer weights can stick.
Basically you get a weight that you didn't select which can fall off as your lifting.
I found lifting the weights out of the holder quickly solves this, or you can spray a bit of WD40 into the mechanism.
Only other little issue is getting the weights back in the holder, sometimes wiggling is required to seat them properly.
Slight clinking noise while using them.
None of these are a really big issues at all to be honest.
The stand gives you good portability, if your living room doubles as a gym its worth getting the stand so you can easily move the weights from one room to another. Very quick to assemble too.
Flick the locks on the wheels and it doesn't go anywhere when lifting or placing the weights.
The stand is very sturdy too.
Already seeing improvements in strength and increased muscle size thanks to these weights.
Would recommend them to anyone wanting to get fit, strong and build muscle.
Overall, fantastic product, very happy !
