* Finally have a decent home gym
* These dumbbells adjust from 5 to 52.5 lbs
* No more trekking to the gym or stinky locker rooms
Having a great home gym is no longer reserved for the uber-rich. A few pieces of highly efficient, relatively affordable home gym equipment have been released over the past few years, and we just found one of the best: these Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells.
Being able to workout at home is an undeniable luxury. No driving, walking, or public transportation to the gym, no gym rats hogging the equipment, and no gross locker rooms. Plus, being able to do a quick workout in the morning or after work gives you more time, and makes you end up sticking to that workout plan much more religiously.
With these adjustable weights, setting up a decent home gym is actually very doable. You’re essentially getting an entire rack of weights in two compact dumbbells. Using a clever dial system, the dumbbells adjust in weight from 5 pounds all the way up to 52.5 pounds. And from 5 to 25 pounds, you can adjust the weight by increments of just 2.5 pounds, which is key for breaking through plateaus and continuing to up your game.
The dumbbells come in at $300, but we think they’re well worth the price tag. They’ll save you money spent at the gym, and unlike some gimmicky home workout machines, dumbbells are a classic piece of equipment with almost endless exercises. The weights also come backed by great reviews too, boasting 4.7 stars on Amazon and almost 4,500 reviews.
