For guys, this is a decent weight range for beginners / younger ages for targeting smaller muscle groups or use in high rep workouts / HIIT style workouts incorporating resistance exercises. Not so much for eventual dumbbell bench pressing, or heavy compound lifting as the weight won't be sufficient. For the general female population, this is a great weight range and would honestly incorporate enough progression to last a long time for upper and lower body compound or isolation work. It's important not to just jump to the "It's too light for a chap to bench!" mentality as this kind of set is still decent for other uses. If anyone needs ideas for home workouts let me know by the way.

Here comes Hotukdeals swathes of professional bodybuilders, spouting nonsense that this kind of weight is practically redundant for men.

These are the same chaps you see in the gym doing lateral raises with 20kg dumbells that looks more like a half squat, throwing their arms up in one, full body flap before letting gravity handle the negative.

If you're an insecure man child desperately trying to attain some alpha male status, these are not for you.
12.5kg really isn’t a lot unless you are new to training. You will soon outgrow them. Better to go for the 25kg ones. They will be enough for most people.
just avoid anything from House of Fraser / sports direct... You have no guarantees you will actually even receive the product.

I bought two dumbells from HOF.... received a cancellation notice due to stock...
A month later I received an email to say they are on the way - took 3 days....
Then Hermes - tried to deliver a trampoline.... wtf?!
I refused delivery Hermes said it was signed for...
I have now had to raise a complaint via resolver... Also direct to HOF and also to CEO of Hermes....

Disgusting companies.

Avoid.

Where can I buy it from?
As @dar.stephens has already commented, these are the 12.5 kg options. It's the heavier weight ones that usually sell for £149.99. Good if you just want a tidy workout area but the bigger ones are better value against the bowflex equivalents.
Too heavy of a deal for me
This is 12.5kg for one dumbell, plenty weight for basic workout routines.
Most dumbell sets come with 18.5 to 20kg combined weight
Can still train chest, shoulder, bicep and tricep with 12.5kg.

Yep, if you're a mouse!
Try doing HIIT with 25kg dumbbells
been wanting to start the Beachbody LIIFT4 programme and these will be perfect as I am a complete beginner to weights!

You couldn't do shoulder raise with 12.5, or tricep kickbacks.

Alright Arnie...
if you are very strong you can do 12.5kg lateral raises but I know really strong people who dont go over 10kg and do 15/20 reps of 5 sets 2/3 times a week.
I also know people who do 12.5 kg and they are flailing around like they are trying to lift off
Is that just for 1
Nice find, been looking for something that isn't a total rip off and actually in stock somewhere.

Now i can stop using my 3 year old son as gym equipment, little bugger wiggles too much
These could actually be very useful weights but unfortunately I think the number of plates and thus weight options are just too limited.
This is the first Sports Direct deal that I've seen with heat for months! Must be a good deal!

Wanna bet?

Your deal history is beer and cheesecake. I'll take that bet

Can you do lateral raises with 12.5 considering how hard that movement is??
its just the one dumbell but im a fan of unilateral training and think more people should do it
Bowflex better
this is redundant if you can ohp/incline/bench press over 60kg , all i can do with these weights is literally lateral raises and different kind of curls ...

Really depends on the technique you use. Super strict form with arms by your sides and bolt upright then most will struggle. But you can also do them with a slight lean and arms more forward

both ways hit the medial head but one allows for more weight to be used

newbies should stick with lighter weights and strict form. You can F your shoulders up if you do them wrong with more weight

Where are the 25s please?

They are currently sold out but will appear on sports direct when available. 25kg will set you back £149.99 but before COVID-19 they were about £90.
taiko26/04/2020 14:18

harder than you it seems


Sorry where did I try and brag about how much I lift :/ ?
