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.

The weights themselves are perfect though.
The weights themselves are excellent - well made, durable and very sturdy - and the bars and spinlocks are of much better quality than other dumbbell sets in the price range. Perhaps wear and tear will eventually tell but the spinlocks are solid and reliable and once the weights go on and are locked in, they don't budge. The kit also comes with a very handy wallchart that shows around 20 different exercises, allowing you to plan a workout for each of your different muscle groups. So far, so good.
Unfortunately, the supplied case lets the package down - it's of dreadful build quality and simply can't handle the weight of the dumbbells inside. My set arrived with a crack in the handle and the plastic fasteners already fallen off - I opted not to send it back, however, as it was fairly evident from the quality of construction and materials used that a different set wouldn't be any better. Attempting to pick the whole thing up to move it elsewhere caused the inside of the case to crack and I was dissuaded from using the handle by shards of plastic falling off at an alarming rate. The case now sits on its rear face on the floor, acting only as a means of keeping everything organised - although even this can be a challenge, as the weights tend to shift around making it very difficult to close the lid.
I wouldn't let the shortcomings of the case put you off buying an otherwise excellent set of weights but I certainly wouldn't pay anything extra over the York 20kg Cast Iron Dumbell Set for it. Thankfully, I managed to get mine for around the same price, otherwise I'd certainly be sending this kit back for a refund and picking up the cheaper set.
However, the case was broken so I could not close it properly.
The metal you attach the weights to is just coated and before the first use it was already peeling off to reveal a rusted metal.
At first I gave this product a 3 star but after writing this I have reduced it to a 2 star just because the product works.
One of the common complaints about these weights is the rubbery paint smell that the discs have.Don't be put off. Iv'e had a pair of them for a while now and I can assure you it doesnt last long, the smell will dissapear.
After owning a set for 12 months I've ordered and received a 2nd set and am once again very pleased...
