Great thanks, looking for a new set

Are these any good? been looking to buy a set of weights but ive never done anything like it before.

They look ok.

Didn't realise that it was 17KG for both dumbbells, was looking for something at least 10KG per dumbbell

yeah theyre fine, you'll need more weights pretty soon though but no big deal

for guys, i would imagine this, being 17kg in total for BOTH combined, being way too light for any exercise...

Any chance you could share a link for something more suitable?

If Tesco's website is correct then the weight of the plates alone is 19kg. Combined with the two 1.5kg chrome bars brings the overall weight to 22kg and 11kg per dumbbell.

?

HTH

I have a set.

There are 2 bars and 17kg worth of plates in lots of different increments.

You can make one dumbell up to 15.5kg of you want, (I think the bar is 1.5kg)

I hope this clears it up

these are good for this price, whether you're looking to increase your current range or beginning to setup a gym at home, of course you'll need more weights some point down the line as mentioned earlier.

I think they have written the weight of the weights wrong, it should read, 4 x 2kg, 4 x 1kg & 4 x 1/2kg then both the 1.5kg bars makes it a total of 17kg!!

I think that would depend on the individuals goals. Not everyone is looking to lift as much as possible. As someone mentioned earlier, you could add the plates to just one bar and use that. For 17kg worth of cast iron plates I think its a good deal.

I would advise to use blue tack to stick the weights together because mine seems to go a little lose after a couple lifts.
If you do buy two sets you can put:

You Have
* 4 x 1.5kg chrome bars.
* 8 x 1.5kg plates.
* 8 x 2kg plates.
* 8 x 1.25kg plates.

On two chrome bars (because I can only fit 8 plates onto one bar).
4 x 2kg plates + 4 x 1.5kg plates + 1 x 1.5KG chrome bars = upto 15.5KG

On the other two chrome bars
4 x 1.25kg plates + 1 x 1.5KG chrome bars = upto 6.5KG (for the misses or use in exercises)

I bought this slightly more than a week back. It's 17kG + 2 bars (1.25KG each). The total is 19.5KG. I wont complain, though if you're for budget, Tesco sells the 15KG vinyl ones for 13+ pounds.

good deal! I'll pop into my tescos store and see if I can pick these up... ;-) b00m b00m!

these are fine for a beginner, it's normally a pound per kilo for steel weights.. look around your local area, can easily add when you need to. Also, metal weights don't really lose value, and aside from rust, are pretty much indestructable.. actually a great investment to use and then sell on at near enough the same price..

yeh waste of time, i use to curl 40kg per arm.

is the hole in the middle of cast iron weights a universal diameter. If you bought extra weights from elsewhere would they slide on the bar ok and not be loose?

Picked these up myself the other day and for the price I'm extremely pleased with them! Ok so your not exactly going to become mr universe lifting these but to say there useless for any excercise is ridiculous.
Perfect for a circuit course as the weights are light enough to do any excercise so no need to interupt the session by having to change weights around.

To light for any exercise - if your a beginner maybe worth getting... look at pruchasing a set which includes a barbell too, having just dumbells is waste of time... just my opinion

Soz buy your talking gash, as part of my training now im doing a routine that involves ONE 17.5kg Dumbell, i guarantee this routine would grind all the 't-shirt muscle working gym rats' into an early grave.....it aint all about lifting huge weights with rubbish form then pacing up and down for 10 minutes between sets like 99% of lifters at gyms do....;)

Good point.

You're better off just getting the York 20kg cast iron dumbbell set from amazon for around 30 quid.Then buying more 5KG disks for them when you need to up the weight.
If you're looking for dumbbells to do something like P90X these are ok for starters but you'll probably be wanting heavier weights after a few weeks.

Heated. Good price.
