You must have a strong neck, hold that big head of yours.

Why are the comment sections of these things always filled with dickheads? Everyone has to start somewhere.

Reading the comments makes me cringe !

The ones bragging about how light the weights are probably sat there with a beer in one hand and a pork pie in the other.

You don't have to limit yourself to only using the plates that come with the bar. You can add more/ heavier plates for the gainz

Q&A section says bar limited to 18KG. Bars supplies with vinyl discs are rarely good enough to upgrade.

At the same time, sets like this, the bars aren't rated to hold all that much weight and you will outgrow it in no time.

Also, this set on Amazon is the same price, free delivery, and has 12KG more with a weight limit of 60KG.

Those weights look really big for the weight. I have a similar set of dumbbells and they just feel huge even though they aren't that heavy. I'm not very good with this stuff but I think you want something like steel ? to not be so cumbersome

I guess you could use these for lateral raises

cheap plastic crap!

All these people saying it light etc. I'm sure some people will find this useful and it is a decent sale price for what is it. Just because it doesn't suit one persons needs doesn't mean it won't suit another.

That's vinyl weights for you, the weight discs are much bigger compared to their cast iron equivalent. One of the problems with vinyl weights is that you can soon get to a point where you want to add more weight discs to your bar or dumbbell but run out of space to do so fairly quickly.

Looks like I should have clicked through before I typed. I'm surprised though, I've never come across a bar before that wouldn't safely hold more than 18kg

What a hero!

the bar is about 4kg - its going to take more than 18kg but if using the supplied weights you dont have much room anyway and its safer to just say 18kg is the max to save them hassle of rating it

HUKD members pump that cement.

Almost worth it for the trolling potential

It is a hollow bar! It WILL NOT take much more weight. Total waste of money. Buy a solid metal that will last a lifetime.

You only curl around 60kg? Do you even lift?

Out of stock everywhere

Oh look... Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to post a comment. It must be great to be able to lift really heavy weights. Not everyone is as strong a you. Plus for anyone wanting to gain strength, or recover from injury, these are great value. Explain to me how boasting about how strong you are does you any good. Go on. I'd love to hear.

​argos

why are so many people offended? This is a very light set and won't be of much use even for beginners after a couple of months, people are simply advising on the worth of buying something like this in the long run regardless whether it's cheap. No different than advising about computers imo.
To put things into perspective, an Olympic bar with no plates will weigh the same if not more than this whole set.

​I started with an argos 15kg dumb sets, today almost 5 years later I can curl with 65kg, 6 reps 3 sets even more depending on time.
But the most effective for me is 45kg, 15 reps 3-4 sets.
Everyone needs to start somewhere, to folks reading some bragging comments, ignore those. Make a start with whatever you can afford and move up when you can.
It's not about HOW MUCH you can lift, but HOW YOU lift it that counts.

its concrete/sand weights they have the tendancy to break and leak

​Don't you think some people deserve the courage to even make a start? Even if it is 10kg? It doesn't matter. Gotta start somewhere. There is much more than just lifting heavy weights, getting the movements right is better.
People starting small and starting right should be encouraged. It's up to them on how they accelerate to heavier weights.

I know people can be really obnoxious when it comes to weights, but honestly an 18kg EZ curl bar with no room to add more is just a waste of money. Pretty much any beginner will be comfortable at that weight and need to increase it after a week or 2...and in the highly unlikely event you're not comfortable with that weight you're really gonna struggle with those weight increments when you do want to improve. Put the money towards a good set of cast iron dumbells. Not only can you add more plates with more subtle weight variations but you can do considerably more exercises and they also force you to make more use of stabiliser muscles which is really important as a beginner. You'll pay more but you won't be anywhere near as likely to waste money.

Nothing against the deal. If it's a deal it's a deal...but that doesn't mean the product is any good in the first place.

I hope you realize that for some ppl, due to health reasons or other issues may not need to left more than 18kg? Some ppl, doing comfortable sets and reps with 10kg is a delight.
This weight is absolutely perfect for majority of people out there. People have different goals in life, not everyone wants to be like Arnie.

Pronate the grip and hammer curl with it using one arm.
Yeah, my gun show is that big.
JK, no-one cares what you lift, brah.

​flipper79 has pretty much covered my reason for my comment. I'm no Arnold and wouldn't want to be either, infact I'm very out of shape and am doing something about it. I started lifting 20kg and was at 40kg within a few weeks, this set may be good for some, or rehabilitation, elderly or as per my comment kids (my 6 year old son is lifting 10kg now, he loves working out with me).

if people didn't put comments like mine then you'd get people buying this without realising it's got no long term use for the majority.
