Last year simply being available would have been hot but now these are regularly available. Also last year's price was around 450 iirc for anyone with a time machine.

Does anyone know a good place to get just the stand for weights like these?

Haha I love the comments about how this isn't enough weight which inevitably show up on these threads.

Like "yeah, what a joke - maybe for core exercises, but even for that, I'd probably need 2 packs of these" or "these might be good for warming up..."

This is plenty weight for most people.

Also, Costco Downsview had a kettlebell from the same brand for $149 each last weekend.

Easy Superman. My wife and I use these 3-4 times per week. They are definitely not useless.

Seriously considering them but I think the "MX Select MX55 Adjustable Dumbbell Set" sold on Costco.ca is better designed and practical to use, just wish they were the same price or cheaper. My only issue with these dumbbells is how wide they are no matter how much weight is loaded. Decent price if you like the stand, otherwise they are $499 from bowflex directly (without the stand I think, not sure) but you have to pay for shipping unless you are ordering something else to go over $999.

To see what I mean, check video @ ~2:50:

I have had the MX-55's all pandemic and love them - also somewhat wide (so, difficult to do exercises that involve holding 1 weight at the ends with 2 hands) but the length and balance are on point.

You should check out the Weider adjustable dumbbells. I bought a set of these earlier this year, they adjust depending on how much weight you have selected. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/weid ... p.html#srp

I picked up the stands at Sportchek last year. Fits the 52.5 and the 90lb versions. My 90lb version was a knockoff Bowflex.

If anyone doesn't need the stand, would be willing to buy one!

Just start with something smaller until you can lift these. There's plenty of other adjustable models or individual ones that go as low as 1lb.

My warm up sets nomally starts from 50lb, each arm. I belive most men can easily reach this point within months if training correctly (But not uing these useless light dumbbells). Pullup/pushups can get much better result than light dumbbells, and much cheaper.

Do you warmup with 50lb on a dumbbell curl?

Curl is useless move. I use pullup instead.

Lol ok. While I'm a fan of compound exercises as well I doubt anyone has a solid argument for never doing isolation exercises like curls, especially if they're into a sport like bodybuilding.

So these dumbbells are useless for you, fair enough, not sure why you felt the need to come in and either spread negativity or try to flaunt your ego.
