York Vinyl Dumbell Set
Disadvantages: Clumpy and hard to store
After taking out a gym membership and not going as the journey was too far, I decided to pick up some exercise equipment for home, these included!
The set which can be bought from around thirty pounds, contains two bars, four 1.25 weights and four 2.5kg weights and the screw lock for the bars! and bought brand new you get a years guarantee on them!
They are so easily adjusted and can put up a 10kg on one weight but if you want to balance them you can put 7.5kg on each one and use them at the same time, the screw locks are really easily screwed off and takes less than 3 minutes to set these up, but you need to make sure the screw is on TIGHT or it will come loose just use and could potentially be dangerous, but they are easy enough to put on tight and safe. The grip in the middle is really easy to cling on too but like most weights can get uncomfortable after long term use, so buying a pair of gloves would be advisable!
Because I was sharing these with somebody else, I didn't want to get the standard weights that are out there for females, so they are not very attractive compared to the hand-held weights, but they are good enough for me to use! The colours are quite dull so if you want something more pretty-looking I would go elsewhere.
These are fairly clumpy and If you can't find somewhere to keep them they can be hazardous because you could fall over them, but these do fit nicely under the bed, so you must think before you buy them where you are going to keep them and if you have space for these!
Because the weights don't go up to much, they are only recommended for beginners to weight-lighting or for anybody that just wants a quick and easy work out, they do there job really well and are easy to set up and use but are really big and hard to store!
Summary: A nice set of beginners weights!
