guys, I appreciate the “advice” so far, but maybe this is the wrong place to ask such a question. Am I “new”? eh, well, considering I’m 41 and got my first hand-me-down set of plastic coated Dan Lurie plates at 15…I suppose I’m newer than some but older than most on this site. It’s not a lifestyle for me, but I have always done some sort of work throughout those years.
I work out at home and have a home cable/stack machine already. Last year I sold a home Smith machine and gave away two incline benches, a preacher bench, about a dozen bars, dumbell handles, collars and about 400lbs of plates, and I still have probably 200+ lbs, several straight bars, dumbell handles and collars left.
Obviously I can curl or press a lot more than I can lateral raise. Changing plates on dumbells constantly is a PITA. All I’m looking to do is consolidate my equipment in a smaller space, lose some weight and keep the muscle I have, not go for 1 rep max’es or post my accomplishments on Youtube. 50 lbs per hand is fine for what I want to do, and quick adjustments are nice.
Now…does anyone have any hands-on experience with these space saver thingies?
