It's the same weight as iron.

Doesn't matter what material you lift, as long as you lift

These would be good for my 6 year old niece.

U prefer CD's

I use these for finger curls.

Can you fit these discs on any dumbbell bars?

You are weak if you lift in lbs. Everyone knows kgs are heavier.

have to agree.....Vinyl weights are horrible. Spend a little more and buy all iron gear. TBH im surprised GOLDs GYM even do vinyl weights as they do good quality stuff.

Good for some people, only real problem with weights like these, is that you'll max out the bar pretty quickly if your serious.

To be honest, if you dont know the key differences between the two, you shouldnt make a judgement.
I have used both, so i know. They might be great for some people to start with. But you soon find your out grow them, and be limited by the amount you can do. As vinyl is allot bulkier than cast iron, and will way less as well. A good example of this, would be the amount of weight i can get on a bar with vinyl, is about 3 times what i can now get on with cast. Need i say more?
Apart from that, these will become brittle and crack over time. When this happens the concrete, oe what ever it is inside, begins to brake up like chalk. It can not take the hammer you can give cast.

All the Gold's Gym branded strength equipment looks cheap and nasty.

No, only ones with 1" diameter ends.

Talking out your **** mate.

Talking out your **** mate.


no i am not. I can manage to get 105kg of cast on my bar at the moment. Compared to 40kg or what ever it was.
So know i am not troll oop

Good find. Good deal for beginner's

very strange leading with 40lb when we deal in kg - yes I know theres kg in brackets but hey ho and is that 18kg each ? or total weight but at the very least this is not a deal about sweets which this site is sooo full of !

These aren't aimed at all you Kai greenes out there... Beginners weights and decent ones at that...

Has this comment thread been written by Armando Iannucci?

Will these turn me into a beefcake?

Plus these are vinyl lbs. 40lbs of vinyl naturally weighs less than 40lbs of iron.

​nah he's not

Have to agree with the fact that these are a waste of money, pay a little extra for cast iron, they are better in every way and hold value if you sell them on unlike these.

try using a barbell then... 40kg lol
you can get 20kg+ in vinyl 3 each side takes you well over your 105cast
depends what plates you have

for this set its obviously for a certain market that wants a light weight with a little flexibility and less damage to the floor
if you were going to be a bit more serious then its not a great buy but for 15quid there isn't much alternative!

do they do the adult sizes?

do they do the adult sizes?


remember these are larger than 'adult' sizes

Only girls lift bars, I lift household objects e.g. Sofa, TV, fridge, chairs

More use in the real world.

Only after the watershed and your bed time
