This set adjusts from 5-45 lbs in 5 lb increments (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 lbs) in each hand. This set has a maximum weight of 45 lbs per hand and can be expanded up to 60 lbs per hand with the optional Personal Plus Handle Set. It replaces 9 pair or 18 fixed dumbbells that would have a combined weight of 450 lbs. Pictured stand is sold separately.
The only dumbbell system that can expand to meet your strength needs, PowerBlock dumbbells are the most versatile and effective exercise tool ever developed for strength training. PowerBlocks work intuitively. Rather than requiring you to buy a room full of dumbbells, PowerBlocks act just like a weight stack at the gym, with a weight handle that fits inside the first weight, which fits inside the second, which fits inside the third, etc. When you want to change weights, you simply move the weight selector pin into the appropriate slot and you're set. As you lift the core, all the weights above the selector pin are lifted at the same time, turning your 3-pound dumbbell into a 6-pound dumbbell, or your 6-pound dumbbell into a 12-pound dumbbell. Not only is the system remarkably easy to use, but it's also cost- and space-efficient, as a single pair of dumbbells can do the work of dozens.
This pair of 45x5 dumbbells, for instance, adjusts from 5 to 45 pounds in 5-pound increments (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, and 45 pounds), in effect doing the job of 18 individual weights. Even better, the weights are more compact and balanced than traditional dumbbells, with a padded handle that protects people with weak wrists. Best of all, the free weights are terrific whether you're trying to build muscle mass, firm and tone your physique, or get rid of unwanted body fat. The adjustable set offers a maximum weight of 45 pounds per hand and carries a limited 10-year warranty.

I saw on PowerBlock''s website that they have expansion packs for these to increase the weight even further, and I'm looking into doing that as I do need more resistance on some exercises now that I've finished my first round of P90X, and these expansion packs are still a better deal than buying individual dumbbells.
The only other downside I could imagine for these is if you were planning on working out at the same time with someone else and sharing the dumbbells if you were not using the same weight. (e.g. a husband and wife working out together). Then a set of dumbbells has the advantage of having the weights not in use by one person being available to the other to use. I don't see that as a major issue for most people, but it could be for some.
Whether you want to use them like a standard dumbbell, or want to take advantage of the extra handles for two handed exercises, the PowerBlocks couldn't be simpler. The padding around the handles are great for keeping your wrists comfortable as well. I also appreciate the 5 lb. increments, as some companies only offer 10 lbs between selections. On the flip side, some companies offer 2.5 lb, and that's nice, but I've never felt the need for that, personally. You might, so just be sure you research and get the ones that do.
The one area you need to really watch is where the pins attach to each designated weight. Just make sure they line up with the color coded weight, and all will be well. Even free weight dumbbells are sometimes put in the wrong place, and I've picked up a mixed-matched set, not realizing it until I wondered why I got so strong on one arm all of a sudden. The same is true for all other brands, so this is no knock on the product. Just be careful.
In hindsight, I should have bought the higher capacity PowerBlocks, with the ability to add on. However, this is my problem, and has nothing to do with the quality or effectiveness of this product. My wife will never use more than the weight on the Classics, so I may end up getting some dumbbell handles I can add Olympic plates to if I want to. Or, since I like these so much, I might just order the Elites for myself, and let me wife lay claim to the Classics.
Regardless of which PowerBlock product you choose, I think you'll be very happy with your purchase. I do not have the stand, but having something elevated for the sake of good ergonomics is nice, so you may want to consider one of those if you don't have a table or desk to place these on.
There are some nice alternatives to standard dumbbells out there, and having lifted free weights most of my life, I get just as effective a workout on dumbbell exercises on the adjustable products as I do with individual ones. I still believe separate dumbbells have their place, but they have a hard time competing with items that take up much less room and are way less expensive, when considering the weight ranges involved.
So, should you buy the PowerBlocks or the Selectechs, or anything similar, you'll have an effective way to train with dumbbells. For me personally, the Powerblocks are the best bang for buck ones out there, and I think you'll be quite happy with them too. I think I've said the word "happy" enough, so I leave you to your shopping, and I wish you luck and fun in building your home workout area!
