This is a pair (2) dumbbells sold in "as is" condition.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you wouldn't mind, upvote this to save time and frustration from all the others who thought it was broken out of the box. The distributors number is 1-800-605-3369, they answered after about a 4 minute hold with me.
Below is my old review that is no longer relevant. They really need some unlock instructions in the box. I've adjusted to 3 stars because of the lack of instructions lol.
OLD REVIEW: I'm a smart user and a gym user, so this isn't user error. I've never owned weights like these, I'll probably still buy some just to save space but unfortunately these ones don't work, straight out of the box which surprised me because I assume Bowflex is a good reputable name. I'm just getting on now to contact Amazon on fixing this. I've had probably 6-7 friends come over who thought they could get it to work but nope, they all realized it's actually not working either. Only one of the dumbbells doesn't work, the other one does like half the time. We lined the numbers up correctly and everything. Come to think of it, the fact that both of these are either partly faulty or completely faulty makes me think it's a bad batch or this isn't a good brand for these.
For the good, the grip is very comfortable and you can change them very rapidly if you are doing circuits that require you to change the weights frequently. They come in and out of the weight stack pretty easily but i tend to do it very cautiously as that seems to be one of the actions that could damage the catch mechanism if forced.
About a month after i bought these I was scanning Craigslist for some other equipment and saw a pair of barely used Ironmaster Adjustable Dumbbells for sale locally. During the month that i owned the 552's it also became clear that i needed to be able to go to at least 75 lbs. I bought the Ironmasters and they are an entirely different level of product (but they come at a different level of price as well). The Ironmasters come with a lifetime warranty and when you adjust them tightly they feel like a solid dumbbell. There is no comparison. Where they fall behind the 552's is in the ease of adjusting the weight. Now that i have had them for a bit i can change two dumbbells in about 45 seconds but the same adjustment on the 552's takes about 5 seconds. That's the only negative on the Ironmasters. I know those are a lifetime purchase. We are keeping both for now and it has worked out well. We tend to use the Ironmasters for heavier sets or if we are not doing circuits that require quick changes and use the 552's for lighter sets or circuits. My wife and i work out together very frequently and do a lot of circuits so two sets of dumbbells actually makes sense.
What i think it really comes down to is what you are looking for in terms of price point and longevity. I have been working out at a gym consistently for 30 years now and just decided to build a home gym. I am 52 and wanted equipment that is gonna stay with me until i just cant do it anymore. In that case the Ironmasters are the right choice. If you are new to working out or setting up a home gym and are not sure you are going to stick with an exercise program its probably hard to justify double the money for the Ironmasters and the Bowflex 552's would be a great place to start. Just go easy on them and hopefully they will last. I would also strongly consider Power Blocks. They are solid and fast to change. Kind of the best of both worlds but some people do not like the design of the hand inside the block position. Hope that helps if you are looking at the big three options.

As a girl, I wish there was a lighter set of these dumbbells with more flexibility in weight selections at the lower end, even if that means sacrificing the heavier weight.
I wish I could do push-ups off these. They warn you not to since you could break the system.
You also better hope to have someone super strong around to move the box around when these are delivered to you. I even needed help unpacking them.
- Conpact (all in one)
- Easy to store
- Get bulky with lighter weights which makes it difficult for certain moves (not a big issue though)
- Sometimes they get stuck. You really need to make sure the weights are well set. Turn a bit raight or left before getting it where you want
You just have to get use to the longer shaft required to accomodate the heavier pounds. They are not that much longer, but they are longer and require an adjustment when using them.
The 552s are easy to pull out, REALLY easy to change weights---(nice smooth dial in), and very comfortable to use. Nice grip...(.the 90s have a killer knurl in them)
...... Don't drop them....these are NOT gym quality, but home quality. Take care of them and they'll last you for years on end. Small footprint, these are really good for women, maybe not so much for men as 52 lbs. is really not enough weight for most men after a few months.. (Especially for one arm rows)..... That's where the 90s come in.
I've even thought about buying a set of these for myself they are so nice to use, but that would be overkill,lol....I like the smaller handles over the 90s but it's been 6 years now that I've been using them.
You get use to them and they are perfect for 99% of all exercises you'll ever do. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
P.S. one of my 1090s locked up on me a couple of years ago..... panic set in, but there was great YouTube video on how take it apart and repair it. Easy peasy, just a bunch of steps. So, no worries way down the road.
Without lots of space for a rack of weights, I purchased two of these and they fit almost anywhere. Plus they replace the need for dozens of pairs of individual dumbbells which in and of itself is extremely convenient!
They aren't as sturdy/durable as regular dumbbells, but I can work with that.
There is a little bit of a learning curve with them too. For example, you can't use them a handhold for pushups as it could damage the mechanism. You need to ensure the weight selected is properly "clicked" in as it won't let go of the base otherwise. And they do sound a little loose while in use (but to date I haven't had a single incident).
Yes, it can be a bit annoying changing the weight for alternating sets and exercises, but it's painless to do so. Pop the weights back into place, dial both sides to the weight you need, and lift. That's it.
Overall, I would definitely recommend these if you don't have the space or money to purchase a wider range of individual dumbbells. Definitely worth it.
They came both in a box, stacked on top of one another. For those of you who don't read the manual, it is easiest to lay the box on its side and then remove the styrofoam and weight.
The weight plates/dumbells are fastened to a 'baseplate' which allows the adjusting mechanism to work. To note, there are cutouts under the plate on the each end of the dumbells which make it easier if you want to move the whole thing.
I have to mostly agree with the other reviewers, which is that they are of a fixed length, which some may judge to be a bit too long at lower weights for some exercises (see pic for scale). For me, I am not a big guy (5 ft 4 in), but this wasn't really too big an issue, although sometimes I have to be careful not to bang the ends of the dumbells against each other. Also, while the dumbbells are not delicate, dropping them wouldn't be advised as the adjustment mechanism might be damaged.
The mechanism for adjusting the weights is well designed although one has to be careful when reinserting the dumbells into the base. I have had a plate stick and needed to wiggle it around to loosen it again, but it was not an issue. The mechanism is designed for safety so that there is a 'click' when the adjustment is properly done, and if the adjustment dial has not clicked, the dumbbell will not come out of the base.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase, and would make it again, especially when they are on sale for a good price!
Als einzigen negativen Aspekt den ich nennen kann ist mir das Spiel der Gewichte aufgefallen (~1mm). D.h. die Gewichte rutschen bei Übungen sehr leicht hin und her was für jemanden der z.B. Sternverschlüsse kennt erst einmal ungewohnt ist. Das Spiel ist allerdings sehr gering (geringer als bei den anderen einstallbaren Hanteln die ich getestet habe) und stört nicht weiter.
Ansonsten ist alles so wie es sein soll. Besonders hervorheben kann man den sehr angenehmen Griff. Zumindest für meine Hände ist dieser nicht zu dünn und nicht zu dick. Die Gummierung bietet selbst für Personen die viel schwitzen dank des Materials und der "Noppen" einen guten Grip.
Uses much less of a 5-50 Lb dumbell rack set footprint letting you use the floor space for any other equipment. The weights are easily adjusted by turning the wheels on either end. Much more functional and easy to use. Super pleased!
The dumbbell themselves are perfect. Saves a lot of space and they feel pretty solid. Just a little thing of the grips being a bit too large for me, not too much though. I would recommend some kind of gloves to go with this. My sister-in-law thought they were too bulky. I think they are perfect size though. Keep your individual preferences in mind.
You will never get the weight to lift heavy, but to keep active at home with limited room this is a must have.
Easy to change weight. Dumbbells offer a great all round workout with limited weight helping to correct unevenness is strength.
Prior to buying I did read a review about the weight dial jamming. I have found this to be true. I haven't been hard on the weight system since I was aware, and it hasn't caused an irreversible damage, but something to be aware of.
Still a great buy. To buy enough range of Dumbbells first you need room, second the cost is still higher.
After a week of use, I am highly satisfied with the dumbells. Easy to use, comfortable and highly durable.
It takes a workout or 2 to get used to the feel. Certain workouts (any chest press or squat) require little adjustment with your positioning and wrist, but never is range of motion limited.
Obviously these are more delicate than your local gym weights so DO NOT DROP by any means necessary. However, if handled with care, the feel becomes natural and you don't feel like your holding little machines.
If it's not obvious already, I highly recommend these dumbells. Fantastic value, a space saver and a great investment during these times and even after this all passes.
