Good deal for a nice looking set. 50kg weights cost around £50 anyway, that makes the bench £20 so heat from me.

I don't like the yellow. Whats a semi decent set for people who want to spend a bit more.

Its for lifting, not matching to the drapes. Seriously though this is a great price and it depends how much you are willing to spend £150+ is easily spent on the weights and benches.

Do you get the dumbbells too as shown in the Pics?

Seems a flimsy waste of money. Even if you can't lift 50kg, it wouldn't take long before you could and had to upgrade. You'd be better of spending more money in the first place.

Have you ever thought, maybe, not everyone wants to lift more?

No. In my experience people tend to want some level of progress when it comes to exercise or they get bored and disillusioned with it and it ends up being used as a clothes horse or gets put in the shed.

50kg isnt going to last you a life time sure and Gumtree etc is better to look for a decent steel set. However if you are practicing proper form and full range of movement and proper amount of sets, rather than jerking around like some idiots I see at my local gym with 100kg doing sweet F-all for themselves, 50kg is enough to build a decent physique and to keep fit with, it should last any beginner a year+ easy and not everyone is looking to lift as big as possible, no matter form or physique.

Anyone else should be looking at a gym pass or secound hand steel weights.

Some also do resistance training for medical reasons, for which this would be fine.

I didn't say anything about bad form. My point was that with proper form an adult within 40kg of the 110kg limit can normally progress quite fast.
I agree it would be ok for some beginners, although personally i wouldn't trust it because it doesn't look very sturdy.

Its rated to 15st 10lbs, nearly 16st, someone who is 16st is either way past this, or would be better off investing in shorts and running shoes.
