Mens Health 25kg Dial dumbbells x 2 £132.98 @ Argos

These are basically a rebranded version of the bowflex adjustable units, go up in 2.5kg increments up to 27.5kg (2.5 for the handles plus 25 in plates) These usually come in at £99.99 each but they are reduced to 94.99 each at the moment and you can stack the MH10 code for 10% off menshealth items with the WEIGHT20 code knocking these right down to £132.98.

These aren't the heaviest out there but they're versatile up to that weigh and a great space saving home gym solution.

cheers!

Seriously no. Just buy some cheaper plates. You can do the same exercises with plates as you can with dumbbells.

All this innovative workout equipment is a mug's game.

Or just use your bodyweight?
(PS it's free)

Idiot comment aside, I can't see the deal here, it's just more to go wrong.

Agreed! Body weight is the way forward, sorry but it's true!

No. How do you train delts or quads to a sufficient standard?

I do agree with the whole body weight stuff but how does this affect the deal? These are personal oppinions. Aren't we supposed to vote the fact that this is cheaper than anywhere else?

Absolutely correct. This isn't Hot Uk Personal Opinions, if this is the best price available it's a deal and somebody wouldn't appreciate it who's looking for this product.

How do you get cheaper plates than this lot? This is the equivalent of 10 sets of dumbbells ranging from 2.5kg to 25kg each hand. Covering that with plates will be much more costly (not to mention more awkward to handle).

Also not sure about the innovation here. These have been around for years and are just a space saving invention to allow 10 sets of 'bells in one small space (handy for small home gyms or PTs carrying equipment to clients)

Hot deal for me.

@Twowrongs Deltoids can be trained with handstand press ups

This may be a silly question, but I haven't seen these before - how do they save space? They're bars with weights, and a lock. What's different to make them smaller? Are the plates made of Osmium or something?
#12
they are adjustable, you spin a disk at both ends and it picks up only the weight you've selected leaving the rest on the ground.

this would be a great idea if you couldn't buy a spin lock setup for a quarter of the price.

??? There's only a few exercises you can do using your own weight. Plus most gym users can bench more than there own body weight! Your own body weight exercises are good for warming up or being used to burn yourself out after a heavy set but that's it
#14
Why not just join a gym anyway. I only pay £18 a month to use the lifestyle gyms and there ace. All the classes are included in the price even though i go there to do weight lifting

You no nothing! What has been said, is true. Waste of money. They look cool, but they are crap!
B.t.w this is only for one, not 2. So unless you want to train one arm at a time, go a head and knock your self out, as well as your wallet.
Anyway, you shouldn't want it as low as 2.5. If you can carry shopping in one hand, just proves it. I say minimum of 5kg

depends on ur goals. if ur goals are powerlifting like mine this aint gonna cut it. if u just want to tone up just jump ropes and or do bodyweight, anything more than toning up you'll need some form of progressive resistence training with conditioning work.

Ha ha ha. You obviously can't read either. If you tried reading the OP, you would see that the link is to a single DB, but with further details on how to get 2 for a discounted price.

Not everyone will automatically want to start at 5kg. People rehabbing from injuries, warming up the smaller rotator cuff muscles, families with a member with some ailment, such as Parkinson's etc. You are the one who knows nothing (note the spelling of know). Let's not start a 'my **** is bigger than yours' competition here, eh? I train people. I have clients who have the Bowflex ones and they've come in very handy for them for several years now. We also do a lot of bodyweight training. Variety is key.

These are good value for people wanting a selection of dumbbells but don't have the space for a collection.

To be honest i did skim over the post, because it didn't warrant me wasting much time on it, and it was late. I was just seeing what people was saying, and honestly saying my personal opinion. In the aid to stop people wasting money.
Jesus man, if you can't curl 5kg, you need to be put down. Most average weekly shopping would be allot more than that. 5 bags of sugar, thats not alot of lifting power in one arm.
If you have a injury then yes you need to take it easy. Actually completely rest is best. Then 5kg again start isn't nothing really.

They are smart and space saving, and if that is your bag and you have money to burn then do so. Otherwise go and get normal plates. If you have a major medical problem, then perhaps going to a gym is the only option for you.

My final comment on this:

1. Rehab requires light weights, not complete rest
2. People don't 'curl' shopping bags. They deadlift them and then carry them (farmers walk)
3. Short of biceps injury rehab, people shouldn't curl. Isolation exercises are garbage for most people. Pull ups, chin ups and bent over rows work the biceps more than enough
4. Not everyone on here is an 18-45 year old male. Some may be female pensioners for who 5kg start is massive for many exercises. They may also have a partner/son who wants the heavier end of the block.

There are many workout options where this kind of thing will be plenty heavy enough - heck, I had lighter versions of these and got a good workout from them when I was younger. These will be fine for probably a good half of the population
