Adjustable Dumbbells is Simply a Smarter Exercise Equipment
The weight lifting and body builder world changed forever with the introduction of adjustable dumbbells. At one time, when the only choice of dumbbells available were those of the free weight design, weightlifters had to interrupt the flow of their routine every time that routine called for a weight capacity adjustment.
Time loss and interruption of the workout routine were not the only inconveniences that came with free weights. The sheer square footage required to store an entire set of free weight dumbbells was usually too much for most people to accommodate as well. With a full set of weights ranging in increments of 5 to 10 pounds and spanning from 5 to 50 pounds or more, you were usually looking at about 6 to 8 feet of space in your home just to store them.
With today’s adjustable dumbbells you can cut down on storage space and keep the flow of your workout routine moving too. These handy weights allow you to have a full range of weights available in a single set of dumbbells, requiring only about half a foot of storage space within your home.
Some of the first adjustable models to be introduced to the market were the Powerblock adjustable dumbbells. These weights are still very popular and will run you about $150.00 to $700.00 a set, depending on the weight range that the particular model you purchase offers. Typically you’ll find ranges being 5 to 25 pounds, 5 to 50 pounds, and 5 to 90 pounds.
Some of the best adjustable dumbbells on the market are made by Ironmaster. The sets of Ironmaster adjustable dumbbells will often cost somewhere between $350.00 and $600.00. The price of these and the Powerblock models often set them outside the budget range of many weightlifters.
Rest assured, if you’re not able to afford a set of Ironmaster or Powerblock weights, there are cheap adjustable dumbbells out there that will serve your needs just fine. In fact, you may want to consider taking a look at the Gold’s Gym adjustable dumbbells. These inexpensive weights cost around two fifty and offer a wider range of weight options than do the more expensive models, with 5 to 100 pound weight delineations available in a single set of these handy and cheap adjustable weights.
Some of the other varieties of adjustable dumbbells on the market include the Bowflex and the Weider models. Weider adjustable dumbbells are among the very least expensive, usually costing about seventy, but they also offer only a minimal selection of weight delineations. These weights usually top out at about 25 pounds, which is the reason for the low ticket price.
