Lightweight dumbbells are extremely popular in home gyms. Because of their light weight, they can be used as part of aerobic workouts, taken on a walk, used with circuit training workouts like P90X or used for those who are just beginning serious weight lifting programs.
Dumbbells are portable, take up little space and can be purchased for every fitness level. In recent years, the popularity of P90X has really increased the market for both fixed weights and adjustable weight sets. P90X allows users to gain muscle and lose fat quickly, and their routines rely on using several different weight sizes through the course of a one hour workout. To keep pace, you’ll need to change weight sizes quickly, which is what makes many people choose single fixed weights in different colors. Single fixed weights are also quite inexpensive, especially if you only need a few.
Other people, however, choose adjustable weight sets because, over time, they are more versatile because you can more easily change the amount of weight lifted without making additional purchases. In addition, an adjustable weight set takes up far less space in your home than the same number of comparable free weights, though you will spend more money on an adjustable set. Before you purchase any weights, you’ll need to take the time to determine which is best for you.
When choosing which type of weights is right for your home gym, you’ll have to consider the following:
• The number of users
• The number of concurrent users
• Fitness goals of each user
• Current fitness level of each user
With these items understood, it will be easier to narrow down the type of weights you want for your home gym, how many weights you need and how much you want to spend.
The Body Solid vinyl dumbbells fit the bill quite nicely for many weight trainers, especially women. They are coated with vinyl, which protects your floors and which makes them comfortable and non slip to hold. They are offered in sizes ranging from 1-15 pounds, so you can start at whatever beginning weight is comfortable for you. This particular weight is five pounds, which is one of the most popular weight sizes, especially for women. This weight is blue in color. With Body Solid dumbbells each size weight is a different color, so that you can quickly choose your weight by color when working out, especially helpful if you’re doing a training session like P90X.
These weights are especially good for women because of their smaller dimensions. Even women with the smallest hands won’t have trouble gripping them. And because they are shorter in length, they don’t get in the way of anything when you’re using them. They are far less cumbersome than some other small weights primarily designed for use by men.
These weights work at every fitness level because they come in every size you could need. Since the weights are sold individually, you can buy just a couple to get started and add new ones, one or two at a time, as your strength increases. They are also a great choice for the person who just needs one or two sets for toning up, rather than looking to build bulk by regularly increasing the weight lifted. Users really like these weights because they don’t have to purchase an entire set, but can get just what they need.
There are always considerations to make when purchasing fitness equipment. In the case of these weights, it is important to consider your storage space, particularly if you plan to add more weights as you gain strength. You could, over time, end up with a lot of them. If you do plan to continually increase weight as you go, a dial up or variable weight set might be a better choice. Sets like these allow you to own just one set of weights, but increase the weight by adding plates or dialing up the weight. They take up less space, but cost more money. For fixed weights, it’s often a good idea to buy a rack for storage, both to make them look less cluttered and to get them up off the floor.
Body Solid is one of the leading fitness equipment companies today. They have been in business since 1989 and have gained a solid reputation. They offer a wide array of products including multi-station gyms, free weight machines, a complete line of cardiovascular products, weight plates, kettle bells, dumb bells and fitness accessories. Body Solid has a good reputation for providing very good customer service and they offer a solid warranty on all their products.
You should shop around for weights if you plan to buy online. Shipping weights can often be expensive, so you want to look for an online retailer who offers free shipping or simply buy the weights at your local discount or sporting goods store to avoid shipping charges. BodySolid products can be purchased at many different retailers online and in store front locations.
Users who have purchased this line of weights have been very happy with them, and have reported that they are very durable and offer a very comfortable grip. The main complaint from users was that they believed when they ordered the weight that they were getting a pair of them. These weights are sold individually, not in pairs, which does make them a bit pricier than some other coated free weights on the market. You can definitely find similar weights, sold in pairs, for about the same price as a single weight from Body Solid.
However, users reported that the weights are durable and comfortable to use. Check these weights out online and from your local retailers, so that you can get the best deal. You’ll often find them on sale, or with a free shipping option. All in all, you can’t get a better or more comfortable basic fixed weight than those made by Body Solid.
They’ve been helping people get in shape with a wide variety of high quality fitness products for years, and these weights are no exception. This is a purchase you’re very likely to be happy with.
