Choose from a great selection of dumbbells in a range of weights and materials
Step your weight training up a gear with Amazon.co.uk’s great selection of dumbbells. Dumbbels have been around since ancient Greece and come in all shapes and sizes.
Look at low to middling fixed-weight dumbbells if you want to enhance your aerobic or fitness workout. A rubber or neoprene coating and flat bottoms will help you keep your grip, even with sweaty hands. Many options come in fun colours, to keep you upbeat and motivated as you sweat through the pain!
For a more serious weight lifting workout, look for dumbbells sets with adjustable weights, so that you can add plates to the bar for added intensity. Selectorised dumbbells are a great option if you like to mix your weight training. Simply change the number of plates when resting in the dumbbell stand, and save yourself the trouble of manually adding and removing plates. These weights take up much less space than fixed weights, and won’t clutter up your home. Look for weights which are durable, particularly for those weights with pin or dial adjustment features.
Dumbbells can range greatly in price so how much you spend will depend on your goals. If you are a weight lifting novice, cheaper dumbbells sets can be used for basic toning and maintaining fitness. For experienced weight lifters, top quality dumbbells can pay off, especially if you’re planning frequent use.
Safety is an important consideration when taking part in any weight training, so check the safety recommendations for your dumbbells and use caution when lifting.
