Ok this is not really a deal as such
but for ages i been searching on the net for some half kilo weights and and kilo weights and the cheapest i was going to pay was like 13 quid including postage
then i found these at argos the bars are not really that good but the actual weights themselves are top class and have added themselves nicely to the rest of my weights
the half kilos also came with

4 x 0.5kg, 4 x 1.25kg, 4 x 2.5kg discs.

2 x 35.5cm spinlock bars.

4 spinlock collars.



Total weight combination, cast iron discs 15.2kg.

Training wall chart included.

Don't act like rambo . . Sure 15KG is nothing but you could do intense workouts with just a few KG's. I'd love to see you try some of the workouts we've done in our boxing circuits. 10 mins with just a few kg's would see your widgy fall off :thumbsup:

Hmmm. Might have to get myself a set of these after this evening. Spent over an hour trying to fit a water boiler 2m up a wall. Bloomin thing weighs 42kg and when full holds 120 litres. Decided on a short surfing break and found this. Dont suppose i could borrow your widgy for an hour or two p2pwar???
#13
Nice deal. :)

I've had this set for the last 5 or 6 years ("York", pretty sure bought from Argos at the time too!) and they've never failed me.

What could possibly be "not very good" about the bars though? I can't fault them.. they do their job fine and are sturdy as, and havent rusted in all the years I've had em!

I am a BAWLA qualified fitness instructor, and these bells are (along with Body Sculpture) are probably the best for someone taking more of an interest in weight training.

The same weights and collars (the spinning bit to secure the weights) also fit the larger bars from the same brands which have disks that go up to ten kilos, and the bells can hold multiple disks comfortably exceeding what 99.99% of people would ever use.

There is no difference in weights from older pre spinlock sets - so disks from older sets can still be added (or new ones disks added to your older sets).

The only downsides with these weights is being round they can roll, and are cast iron - so entirely unforgiving if dropped, so if you are completely new to training with weights - this might be a better option...

Lastly, cast iron weights are near on indestructible, and far more people buy them than every actually use them - I have well over 200kg of free weights all bought second hand for under sixty quid in total.

I've had these for around 7 years now - from argos - brilliant. No complaints here.

If you want additional weights, the 4x5kg weights are on offer too @ £13.32 instead of £20 which is what i paid for them:

I doubt people here are wanting to become the next Randy Couture :-D

Easy to buy additional weight for them as per my link.

I got a set of 50's with barbell/2 dumbbell bars + spinlocks for £30 from argos ... much better ;)

Remember to use the 'muscle' between your ears.

It is weight training not weight lifting !

If you need to use a great deal of weight you are not being very smart.
#22
The fact that these were a sod to carry back up the hill from argos suggests they were a necessary purchase. Now to get to work...
#23
Thanks for this I bought a set today :thumbsup:
#24
Fantastic set. I bought the barbell/dumbbell 50KG set from Argos for £50 over 7 years ago and it's still doing the business (I've been off and on it over the years). The spinlocks have never really deteriorated through use. I just added the 2x10KG set to (£15 Argos) the barbell so I wasn't having to swap as much weights around each time.

Much better than those stupid vinyl + sand weights that take up lots more room and have un-rounded weights.

I'd also recommend picking up a set of weightlifting fingerless gloves so you don't get that hard skin where you grip.
#25
the guy who said he could pick them up wioth his widgy
unless your the hulk and if you knew how to gain strength properly you would know you cant go say from doing a bicep curl with 25kg to 30 kg
the next weight would be 26kg and thats where the half kilos come in
just thought id clear that up
#26
ps i find the gloves make my grip worse

Was that the cast iron ones or vinyl?

Theres no plastic on these, i'm guessing you're mixing these up with cheap low quality vinyl sets? The bar is very good quality, heavy metal with no plastic, i've had them for 7+ years.


BTW, to the OP - the link to argos seems to be broken.
#29
cast iron
may have misread the ones i use are the body sculpture ones from littlewoods there just pure metal
the ones i got in the set from argos had plastic spinlock collars and a big bit of plastic round the handle
and my personal opinion is that the argos bars are bit pants

Also find the spring collars hold the weights in place better :thumbsup:


These bars are not solid and feel uncomfortably light, although they don't state a maximum capacity.

I would doubt the curl bar could be used with over 30-40kg although I never checked to see - and for the tri bar the same applies even more - as you can be holding the weights over your head.

The spring collars are brilliant for lighter weights - but as disks tend to spin during curls it causes them to move apart on the bar, and spring collars cannot grip strongly enough to secure heavier weights once they start sliding.

These ones definitely don't have any plastic in sight at all. Cast iron spin locks, steel bars (they make my hand smell of metal after a session)!!

I find them very decent actually, esp for the price. I might get another set ;) so I dont have to change the weights as much. That's my main bother with them, taking off the spinlocks to add a little more weight is mildly annoying when you just want to get on.

Agreed , heavy weights dont = being macho or even strong!, So many people lift too heavy with absolutely pathetic form which isnt working the muscles properly. Proper reps of bicep curls with these will prove they are easily heavy enough to get your arms like popeye, its technique not weight that builds muscle :p
#35
Got these last month, and there great for a home workout!!

The guide that comes along with them is great for working most of the main muscles. Provides a nice little routine!!
#36
strength training you have to add weight
and no one gets it
your right about the way you lift you do a **** rep you might aswell have not done it
but thats what these weights are for the 1/2 kilos
say your doing a bicep curl
and you start on 15kg its hard at first then your body gets used to it and you then can do more reps
with these half kilos your no really adding that much weight
the 15kg becomes 16 kg bassicaly tricking your body
your body knows its a bit heavier but you can still do it
just not as many reps then you build your reps up again
then add another half kilo each side
and eventually after time all these half kilos and kilos add up and your bicep curling 30 kg in like 3 months
this also applys to all weight training
also dont get this confused with circuit training
circuit training and gaining body mass is compleatly diffrent

I do 4 sets on 30kg and the curl bar is fine. Agreed it feels light, but thats deceiving, it can handle the weight. Never tried it with any heavier tho. Plus I actually find the spring collars better than the spin ons, but I guess its personal preference. :thumbsup:

I find the straight bar strains my wrists when curling so have to use the curl bar.
