After using the PowerBlock setup for a couple years I came across IronMaster, another brand with adjustable dumbells. They go to 75lbs without the add-on kit, and cost a little less than the PowerBlock dumbells. I have BOTH in my home gym now, and I will go over the pros and cons of each for those of you trying to decide on a set up like this.
Pros: Well made, comfortable grip, fast and easy to change the weight in 10lb increments, nice stand included, made in USA, ability to go up to 85-90lbs as is, and 120lbs with add-on. Excellent for exercises where you change weight quickly or frequently. Square dumbells don't roll.
Cons: Funky design with 4 pillars around your hand/wrist. It works, but it makes me nervous at higher weights that if I were to drop them I could somehow catch my wrist in there and hurt myself. Difficult to quickly switch weights in increments smaller than 10lbs. This is a problem for many exercises. Although they are sturdy, and have never given out on me, they rattle and the plates move a little when you use them. Again, they seem sturdy but when doing shoulder or bench press it's a little disconcerting. You need to make sure the magnetic pins are fully inserted and in the right spot or disaster could ensue.Read more ›
I can't stress the durability aspect of these enough. There's just nothing on here that can easily break due to the strong materials and smart simple design. You can change weight amounts on both bells in literally about 6 seconds, without multiple dials to turn. With less weight, they are smaller, with more weight they get bigger, unlike other designs that basically remain the same size no matter if you're lifting 10 or 50 lbs. I fully expect my 2 year old son to be using these in high school. They are made in America and carry a 10 year warranty. If you are in the $300 budget range and are looking for a set that is durable, easily adjustable, and versatile, I highly recommend these.
As you do a chest press with 75 lbs, it gets challenging, since the set gets wider. However, aside from that, bent rows, curls, shoulder presses, squats, triceps extensions are easy. Wrist curls are a little cumbersome but manageable.
The finish is relatively durable but over a period of 5 years, the enamel does chip off. However, it is not rusting, even after 10 years.
The handles are padded and comfortable.
These are not resistant to damage when dropped so you need complete control with these weights.
Given the modular design, it fits in a space of 2 shoeboxes.
I highly recommend this set. It WILL be the last set of dumbells you EVER buy again.
Overhead, incline, and flat bench presses are very stable. The shorter length allows the weights to come closer together at the top of the contraction without clanging together. Control and stability on the up and down movements is excellent. The plate sections do not wobble or rattle. Bicep curls are great, and 1-arm rows are just awesome! I already maxed the 70lb set for those and could do more (maybe the expansion set needs to be ordered?!).
There is only one minor issue: While the weights can be adjusted in 2.5 lb increments using the in-handle weights, there are 5 lb gaps in the sequence every 10 lbs, so that you have to go from 20 lbs to 25 lbs, 40 lbs to 45 lbs, etc. The simple solution if you need those in-between weights is to get a pair of 2 lb wrist weights (which I have).
For anyone without any dumbbells, this is a no-brainer purchase. I already had 5 lbs - 30 lbs hex dumbbells, and this was still a great purchase. I use the hex weights for anything up to 30 lbs (generally only shoulder flys or drop sets) and the PowerBlocks for over 30 lbs (everything else). I looked at Iron Master and Core Fitness, but decided on PowerBlocks after getting feedback from friends at BodyBuilding.com. No regrets!
