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.

-come with a carrying case
-not plastic, made of metal, so one pair is all you'll ever need
Is there anything bad about them? Well, they are heavy (just kidding). Seriously though, I can only think of two disadvantages. Some people might be bothered by the rough handles. If this is the case, a) you will get used to them over time, but you could get callouses, and b) try some plastic wrap on the handles if need be.
Other than that, the only bad thing I can say is that to change the weights, the collars aren't the clip-on kind that make plate changes go quickly- rather they're the screw-on type- which take longer to get on and off, and some might find it a bit cumbersome if you're changing the plates around a lot.
All-in-all a good item to purchase if you're in the market for some dumbbells. And those with shoulder problems might also want to check out Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff for some good rehab/prevention exercises for the shoulder.
Upon first getting the weights out, they do smell a little odd. However I haven't found the smell to linger inside a room; the smell seems to stay exclusively on the weights. They slot onto the bars perfectly, with the spinlock collars again being a perfect fit (as opposed to some less well made spinlock products). Other reviews have mentioned the collars becoming loose; this hasn't happened to me yet so I still have full confidence. The rubber washers on the bars and the collars prevent the weights from making noise. Unfortunately the rubber washer on the collars is prone to becoming unglued and falling out - but they're hard to lose and easy to reglue if you're upto it.
I loved the variety in weight. To be able to start a workout using heavier weight than you're used to in an attempt to use progression, then when that becomes too much to be able to quickly and easily drop down to a lower weight to finish the workout is fabulous. They really do change quickly, with a wide range of different weight to go between. In addition when you get to the stage where these weights are no longer a challenge new discs can be bought and added without the need to buy a further set of bars or collars.Read more ›
I purchased it Friday night and it arrived on Monday. So it looks like Amazon have fixed their problem sourcing the weights.
The metal bar is abrasive on bare hands (probably quite good if you use gloves though). However, this was quickly solved using a few layers of clingfilm as suggested by Raj B earlier on.
All in all. A good purchase!
The weights are quite small, too. Much smaller than York's sand-filled ones, so they are much easier to handle - you can do tricep exercises without hitting your back. Very handy.
As another reviewer has said, the weights come with a sheet of exercises and you do need a bench for some of them, but you can get away with lying on the floor on a few pillows if a bench is out of your price range (though Amazon do sell some for less than £50 now, for example: York DB4 Dumbell Bench).
Overall, I'm very happy with these weights, and will look into the 50Kg set soon... York 50kg Cast Iron in a Case with Wheels
* Come with detailed exercise programme poster
* Extremely easy and quick to change the weights on with the spinlocks.
* Good weights for a beginner (0.5kg, 1.25kg)
The bars are a bit rough but if you start lifting weights you will have to get gloves anyway.
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 only issue I have is that one of the clips on the case was broken so when I removed it from the box the actual weights etc nearly fell out. It also means I can't use the handle to carry it as the clips are on the side. However, I do appreciate that this is probably just a one off and if I was to order it again, it would be fine. That's why I have given it 4 stars and not 5 though.
