Adjustable Dumbells


#1

Hey Guys,

I am trying to help an old buddy buy adjustable dumbells. There are alot of choices online but I do not want to recommend something that I have not used. Have any of you used a good brand of adjustable dumbells. I think the max weight he will be looking to use will be around 80 lbs even though I will try to convince him to go heavier.

Thank You,

JS

Honestly I would say get OLY plate loaded DB's then buy a 300lb OLY set and BB. you'll have all that and still spend less than those adjustable DB's.

Guys, lets get off of our lazy arses and do some low level research ... that thread was started less than a week ago.

Powerblocks are great ... I have a pair.

Hey friend,

My buddy lives in an apartment in new york city. Would you still recommend the Oly DB if someone has a limited amount of space?

Thank You
