The York Fitness 20kg cast iron dumbbell set offers users a complete solution for increasing upper and lower body strength. Strong and robust, the cast iron weight plates and chrome spinlock bars are incredibly heavy duty. The spinlock collars make it quick and easy to increase or decrease the weight. Strength training is one of the most effective ways to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently, strength training is an important part of any fitness programme. Studies have shown that strength training can also help to increase the endurance of muscles, while also helping to increase bone density, reduce resting blood pressure and improve balance and co-ordination. Dumbbells are amongst the most widely used pieces of exercise equipment. Offering users a fully body workout, they can be used in a wide range of exercises. To get the most out of your workout it is essential that you are using the correct weight. As a guide, the last rep should be a struggle. If the dumbbells are too light, simply unscrew the spinlock collar and increase the load slightly by adding another disc. You should still have control over the weight and your form should still be correct. Don't arch your back, strain your neck, or rock your body to generate momentum as this can cause injury, but you should feel like you can't lift another rep. Improving your breathing techniques when you're working out is also crucial, helping your body to deliver oxygen to your muscles more efficiently. For strength training, exhale on the exertion phase (the lifting, curling or pushing) of the exercise and inhale on the easier phase when you return to the starting position. Proper breathing can also help you to build endurance and ensure good form.

2) Cheap collars
3) Rusty weight discs
4) Missing one collar
5) No chart provided (it is advertised)
6) The case was old, dirty and had a dent
From the amount of tape and postal papers the case had on it (and no one cared to remove), I am sure that particular set I received had been delivered and returned at least 3 times before. And deservingly so.
The chemical/toxic smell of the paint also makes me wonder whether the paint is safe. I have them in a room which now stinks of some industrial chemical even with the windows and door wide open.
The packaging arrived torn and battered and the case is dented and missing one of the sliding closing devices, so it is useless. The grips have dents on and the weights chipped paint.
This is a really shoddy product, and I recommend you avoid it at any price.
UPDATE: I spent a while on the website and then 20 minutes on the phone to Amazon to sort out a courier to come and collect this and to get a refund for the courier charge. Really wish I had not bothered buying this. Should have heeded the 1 star reviews...
I have done some body building in the past, although I am not trying to look like 'Arnie' now, I am trying to get some weight exercise. These weights let me without a massive outlay on more sophisticated kit that I don't have room for. Although this set could be part of a 'power' set in the future.
They come with a plastic storage container, which I am surprised to say, has not fallen apart yet! My biggest grip is with the rubber washers on the hand bars, the rubber keeps falling out meaning we end up finding strange washers laying round on the floor. I may have to glue them in.
The set comes with a wall chart of exercises you can do with the weights, and that sensibly also includes warm up stretching exercises to stop cold muscles being pulled. I am very happy with these for the light exercise I put them to.
You get 12 discs in 2.5/1.25/0.5kg weights, the dumbell bar, spinlock collars, plus a fitness/exercise chart and instructions. It's pretty quick to change the weights as the screw thread on the bar is large (has a large pitch) - literally you can spin them off and on within a matter of seconds, so I wouldn't worry too much about this aspect. The dumbell bar and spinlocks together weigh 1.7KG, so using the provided discs you can go from 2.7KG through to 10.2KG on each dumbell.
The discs do smell a little as others have said but not excessively. The bars also have a bare metal patterned grip which I guess could give you sore hands after a lot of use but I haven't had any particular problems so far (and will use gloves if/when I do).
The set is made of cast iron and steel, so looks like it will be very durable. Recommended.
