CONTENTS AND WEIGHT - 2 bars, 4 collars (2 for each bar), 52.5 lbs weights for each dumbbell broken down into 8 x 5 lbs, 2 x 2.5 lbs, 2 x 1.25 lbs. Note that these weights add up to 47.5 lbs, but the bar along with the collars adds up to the remaining 5 lbs. You may wish to keep this in mind when adding on weights. With fixed dumbbells, I usually curl 30 lbs each side, which means that with this set, I need to add only 25lbs weights because the bar makes up for the remaining 5 lbs to give a total of 30 lbs. I initially added full 30lbs weights and found it heavy, only to realize later that I had not factored in the weight of the bar and collars. The set also includes 6 spare rubber washers for the bars.
MATERIAL - The weights are made of cast iron with a black paint. They look built solid, and the paint has been holding up so far after several months of use. The weights did have a few chips here and there, but nothing of concern because you will only be using the bar to grip the weights. I know some reviewers mentioned a paint odor, this was not the case with the set I received. The bar and collars are made of standard chrome material with ridges in the middle for grip. If the ridges bother your skin, you can simply wear workout gloves when using these dumbbells.
OPERATION - It is fairly straight forward to add and remove weights from the bar. The collars are simple to screw on and remove for this purpose. The collars and the bar have a washer type rubber to cushion the weights on each end. Once rightly screwed on, the weights stay in place and don't move around.
MY MAIN ISSUE WITH THIS SET - While I mostly like this set, there is one big drawback for me personally and I thought I'd point it out in case this is of concern to others as well (I did not come across this point anywhere in previous reviews). Because these are adjustable weight dumbbells in increments of only 5lbs, the bar is longer than usual to fit more weights to add up to the full 52.5 lbs - it measures just a touch over 16 inches. If the increments had been in say 10 lbs, the bar could have been smaller. I compared this to a fixed weight dumbbell that I have, and that measures only 11 inches from one end to the other.
So why is the extra length a concern? It's a concern if you're doing bicep curls. As you bring your arm down during bicep curl reps, the long bar hits your thighs, and you can't bring your arm down in the fully extended position (unless you keep your hands slightly more spread apart than they need to be to fit the bar between your hands and thighs, but that's really not the proper way to do bicep curls - arms should ideally be close to the body). If you're doing pretty much any other exercise like shoulder press or triceps press, the length won't be an issue at all. In order to use these dumbbells, I now do hammer curls instead of bicep curls, which is a close alternative, though not exactly the same. But it works and I am ok with this change.
If you buy this set and are looking to do bicep curls, and the bar length is an issue, you have the option of ordering a smaller bar with collars separately (there are several available on Amazon that will fit this set and are 14" in length). Note that a smaller bar may not fit all the 52.5lbs weights, so I guess it depends how much you curl. For me, a smaller bar can easily fit 30 lbs on each side and works just fine without hitting my thighs in the arm-fully-extended position.
I am posting pictures explaining this issue. I hope you find this helpful in making your purchasing decision :)
The only two things i do want to warn first time buyers is that sometimes the weights will losen up an spin this happens with all the weights that have a screw type of tightener its ok it wont fall off and doesnt happen often just learn to twisted firmly you do notice it but on ocasion it helps if u dont twist your wrist while you lift(curl) its bad habbit and it tends to be why the weights spin. Just want to emphazie that it doesnt happen often and for me it was still worth the benefits with all the room it frees up
Second thing dont try and lift them when u get them via the mail they are fifty pounds each and is heavy i noticed the mail man didnt try to this either since the box looked like it was drag across the driveway i would suggest u do the same or open them and carry few weights at a time. Ps i feel bad for the mail carrier that delivers these puppies. I hope they dont hurt themselves.
