FYI, Powerblock Sport 5.0 are adjustable from 5-50lbs and cost $298 from Fitness Depot. They are more reputable and come with a 10 year warranty. Your deal is decent I suppose, just not too sure how reputable this Universal company is.

thats what I thought... although it should come in a box that is about 2 feet by 2 feet and weigh a total of about 100 pounds, so I am sure the shipping cost is not too crazy... Still though, I wonder how much they can make off the product factoring that in?

Do the Powerblock dumbells ever go on sale? I would be looking to get the 90lb version.

Thanks.

45lbs not 445lbs :facepalm:
Taken directly from amazon as the title. Most adjustable dumbbells work this way.

Bowflex 5-52 lbs is called 552
The 10-90 lbs are called 1090s.

Each dumbbell adjusts from 4 to 45 pounds, in 5 pound increments, allowing you to rapidly switch from one exercise to the next

Why not just get sacks of pennies and nickels.

Then when you inevitably lose interest in weightlifting, or actually achieve your goals - you can get your money back.
A US nickel is worth more than 5 cents.

Easy on OP guys. I can't speak to the quality of this set but some of us actually need this weight range to start something like p90x. This would actually be perfect if the switching works and the quality is there.

I use the powerblocks 5.0 for p90x and I can't see using more weight than this for the first cycle. I actually think the powerblocks have a lifetime warranty.

You could also train like Rocky in Rocky IV and go to Siberia, lifting family members on a horse cart, and climbing a mountain in the snow....

Me too, there are times when I want a bit more weight to be able to vary my work out. That being said, with the stand and free shipping this is a great deal.

I have the equivalent of the Bowflex 552's....think mine were Nautilus, but the tags have long since fallen off. 8 years of flawless service so far and still going.

While 45 pounds isn't a lot, unless you are seriously into heavy lifting its not bad either. I find the 52.5 lbs for me sufficient for most upper body. That being said, with two kids I'm not nearly as serious as I once was. If you raise the reps, lower the rest and concentrate on form, 55 pounds is a lot...and 45 ain't bad either.

For all those craving more, I was in the last location of the fitness source in Pickering on the weekend and the dumbells were 33 cents a pound which is pretty smoking hot. No selection below 50 pounds, but losts of 90lbs and 100lb models. Store closes for good on the 27th.
