How can I justify paying that amount to my wife
I’ve had a set for 18 years still going strong. I’ve only just got a set of urethane dumbbells now

Better get ripped like Arnold Schwarzenegger
lmao 450 quid for 24kg. You could buy a full rack for about 800-900. I bought 20kg for 30 on thurs. I think my set of 50kgs (hex) came in at a little over 120~ (admittedly precovid)

Wish I got a full rack before. I paid just under 1k for a 11 pair urethane set recently.

Yeah I bought my hexes individually, still got a good deal but not as good as outright buying a rack.

Sounds bad but with Gym's likely folding soon I suspect you'll see second hand racks start popping up on ebay. There was a few locally but I don't need them any more.
Just be warned when I thought about buying a rack I suddenly went, f**k, can my car even carry that much weight?

Yeah was thinking that. I converted my summer house into a full on gym and wanted proper dumbbells now. My self justification is I will trim my gym membership (I used to have 2, one in my old work and one near home). Instead I’ll keep one at new work (which costs next to nothing to use) and get rid of one near home (decent one in London) as will use home instead.

When rumours started pre lockdown of gym closure I did buy an Olympic set (with various bars and a commercial bench before they went crazy in price. Wish did the same with the dumbbells!
Is there any hopes dumbbells prices go to pre covid prices after gyms open?

how is the situation in Germany? I believe they are ahead of us

An apparent second wave coming. Depends what the govt do with that. Can’t see gyms reopening soon

And to the guy that said a full rack is 900. Well the 41kg pair is 700 and takes considerably less space. Not sure what point he was making

Oh very nice, sounds like we're in a similar situation. I have a local gym down the road, and then my office gym but I can't imagine I'll use either any time soon - who wants to work out with perspex screens around you, it's bad enough getting a bench on a good day let alone with 2m distancing.

An Olympic set would be badass, about as close as I can get to that is a few noddy bars - of which you inevitably catch your finger on because you're racking up a ton of 5-10kg plates.

Not massively impressive but I setup the rear of my garage with all my lifting stuff. Bench, pull/dip/etc rack - it does the job but can get a bit hot.

Protip, buy second hand horsemats to put on your floor. You can almost throw weights on the floor, no bounce and no sound - I have no idea why mainstream gyms don't use them, bouncing weights are dangerous and these mats completely cut that out for sod all. I think I did my entire garage for a few hundred quid. Second benefit is the sound dampening is quite eary - it's one of the quietest places in my house.

Good luck with the summer house project. If I had the space and privacy I'd totally do the same

Are the horse stall matts OK to stand on when lifting? I'd read it was best to try and put a sheet of wood down the middle for standing on, like the picture below, I'd be interested to hear if you feel the stall mats are spongy, unstable or dangerous in any way for lifting?

I'd prefer the stand below for lifting, but my wife would prefer the floor all done in stall mats for use as a 'gym space'.

Well I'll be careful, I'm neither semi pro, nor pro so I don't know how they handle if you're lifting the big stuff. My experience is it's entirely solid, so much so I park motorcycles and cars on it without any issue.

It's not particularly spongy, obviously it has a bit of give but nothing that would throw you off - if anything it gives you a slight opportunity to realign your posture.

If you're interested I suggest getting a small 1' foot square offcut and see how you feel.

As for the boarding underneath, my flooring is concrete so I just lay it bare. Been down for a few years without issue

Thanks.

Like Horstachio I'm looking to turn a summerhouse into a gym. I started looking at the Deadlift mat more as a way to protect the floor and spread the weight a bit.

Ah much jealousy

Absolutely look in to it, I doubled up on mats so there's about an 1.5" between the concrete and the weights.
Had mine for 5 years, they are still going strong. Most people will moan that you can get a rack for £450. Try finding space for that in a 2 bed house. These literally slide behind my sofa out of site when not in use and although not the heaviest they are perfectly adequate for most people's home workouts and take next to no space to store.

I bought the mens health 32.5kg set about 3 years ago for £300 in Argos. Possibly my favourite bit in my home gym. They are now doing the 40kg adjustable for £199 but currently oos I believe. They are a great balance between saving space and money over a full rack and the hassle of having to screw on screw off spindle dumbbells. Pity about the prices at the moment but thoroughly recommend them!

Yes, but that's still 50 quid cheaper than this for 12.5kg extra on each dumbell.

Thought I'd been clear but I've now reworded my post so as not to confuse.

This kind of set up does sound appealing ie being able to dial the weight you want but in reality I think the size of the weights are too big (more like curling 2 barbells).

This was one of my concerns before I bought them, but to be be honest I dont find it a problem. At the lightest weight you are still lifting the full lenght handle, but there are very few exercises that will be close to the body at the low weight where it will matter, and when you increase the weight on normal dumbbells they become a similar size. At the top of a shoulder press, they are are maybe a little wider then a spindle bar, but if you really need to you can twist your wrist a little to get them closer
I’ve expired as oos

Don’t buy from these crooks. Preordered the 25kg one. Waited 2 weeks and after several emails a group of us on here had them the orders cancelled. Terrible service from Sports Direct
