You change weight when you change your excercise, LOL.
My advise is, just pair a cheap pair of dumbbells, if you manage to keep the routine up for 2 months, then go ahead and get these, otherwise it'll end up in a corner gathering dust, alongside ab blasters, running machines, exercise bikes and flesh light

I think it has more to do with convenience rather than laziness. Also having less clutter with plates around is a big win.

That's a bargain. I'm sure I seen unbranded ones for like £350/£400. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts

Depends on what you're doing. If you're just doing bicep curls like a typical 'bro' then sure. But if you're doing chest, shoulders, back, arms and legs then a 10kg dumbbell isn't really going to do it for you.

I do however think that there would be an issue with the robustness of the mechanism.
Sorry this maybe a dumb question, never bought these before, but do you normally get a pair for the price? Or is that just a single dumbbell set please? Thanks.

You might want to do a oyramid session, where yoy start off light, gradually increase the weight and finish off light again.
Oe you do bicept ans tricept in same session, yoy would use different weights. Saves you having a load of dumbbells taking up space.

I change mine fairly often, when switching between different exercises. I will push more in a shoulder press than raises for instance.

You'll find this type of weight system quicker than manually unscrewing each time that you do a different exercise, to then put it back later.

I'll tend to do super sets. I guess these cut time down over having to unscrew and add or remove weights all the time. Saves on space too. My other half isn't keen on the conservatory being full of weights

This is 1 adjustable dumbell, you are best with 2.
I'm so tempted to place an order but their returns policy is shocking! Don't want to be lumbered with a potential £300 mistake 14 days later.

I have another brand and there perfect for limited space or just if you can't be arsed having plates or bells everywhere, making a mess.

These are useful for High intensity workouts. When you have short breaks between workouts, turning a dial to change the weight saves significantly more time than adding weights manually to dumbbells. Bought a pair of 24kg dumbbells a while back, was a good buy!
I think I will stick with the Aldi ones which we're around £12 when I bought one. Aldi fitness offers comes round in a circle, so should not be too long before they are available again. Dumbells are usually sold singularly not in pairs.

£12? What weight?
Thanks OP ordered - and heat issued...
TBH, I'd never even heard of these things (being one who doesn't really gym much). I have a set of weights, but it is such a chore to use them, for me these will likely make me exercise more...

Lmfao. It would be lazy to only do one exercise (nearly every exercise requires me to change weight because I'm not "lazy" and push different body parts to their limits (which are different, would you believe).

That makes sense. Understandable.

But the price per KG seems insane compared to even top brand good quality plates.

Ive personally got a "big" set and my "small" set for other bits. Others must be doing a real complex workout. Could never justify quadruple the cost for less clutter or "speed" of dumbell change.
Wouldn't u need 2 of these?

I have a 16 stone mate who used to go to the gym daily but now just trains at home - big lad and he likes these - probably paid full price too! They are well built, not sure the rrp is worth it though.

I would never buy a gym membership as for many it is a waste of money. I switched to setting up a home gym 15 years ago in my conservatory consisting of rowing machine, cross trainer/bike & 3 sets of weights + bench, the whole lot probably cost the price of just a few months gym membership and as quite literally right on your doorstep there's less excuse not to use. Exercise equipment can always be bought secondhand and almost unused for a fraction of the new price.

Thanks for the info Pabloc
I own 2 x 24kg sets of these. Bought for £150 on a deal here a while ago. Fantastic bits of kit if you don't want to spend hundreds more on individual weight sets and racks to store them. The ratchet mechanism works perfectly and the plates feel sturdy on the bar.

It's a bit bigger and more cumbersome to handle than a conventional dumbbell but it's the functionality you're paying for. At £150 for up to 40kg, this is a bargain.

Ordered 2x 24kilo. Thanks OP. Was after these for a while from Argos. They ones don't drop in price anymore.
Have always wanted one of these but couldn't afford. Are they decent quality.
I bought the Men's Health ones which go up to 25kg from Argos for £99 a while ago (now £119.99) . These Everlast ones seem better as the increments/decrements are smaller and upto 40kg.

On a serious note space saving so very useful

which costs more than this deal?

These looks great, I have fixed iron dumbells in my gym from 2.5 to 40kg, these would be amazing if I could sell my lot. Just wondering though, anyone else DB press these? I use the 40's in my gym and they feel great, wondering how these big adjsutables would feel..
"£12? What weight?"

Re Aldi. Well I have 6.5 kg on mine, and from memory there are 2 other weights still in the box, but I cannot remember where I put them, so not sure of total. At least they are metal. I hate plastic weights with concrete inside as eventually the plastic disintegrates.

They feel heavier because they're so wide. You do have to compensate a bit for them with their centre of gravity being further along on both sides

Can anyone explain what this "gym" thing is? I'm unfamiliar with the concept.

Would this be any use for hanging clothes on like the rest of my exercise equipment?
