Exactly what it says on this tin
on 6 January 2014
I upgraded to this weight level recently and whilst it might be slightly ambitious for me after taking a Christmas break from training, I will work back up to this level again. These weights are the best ones out there imho. As a girl I started off with those rubbish little purple/pink plastic things. Wish I had never bothered. after reading a shed-load of material encouraging women to lift more, I decided to go for it, and honestly? It's worth it!!!
It terms of these weights specifically, they are the right shape not to go rolling around on the floor, the grip is good (even when sweaty - but wear gloves, calluses are a pain) - they are a hundred times better than any of the other weights that I've tried, even the rubber ones, which are easier on the hands, but mark easily and feel horrible when your hands get sweaty. These are the weights I use in the gym as well. Well worth getting. I've marked it as 4 stars because the packaging was just a flimsy box with some plastic cord/tape/stuff around it. By the time it arrived to me, the lack of packing materials meant that the box was quite battered. However, these are tough weights!! Essentially, you could bash these around and they won't break so packing isn't really that important in terms of breakage but a stronger box might be better to stop them from falling through.
