The Powerblock classic adjustable 5 to 45-Pounds per dumbbell set is an extremely versatile tool for strength training at a relatively reasonable price for what you get. They are effective and can meet your exercise needs from the comfort of your own home.
This is one of the best dumbbell systems that you can purchase to increase your strength gradually through varying weight increments. If you are at home and do not have much space then this set is ideal. Instead of having to go out and buy many dumbbells of different weights this product incorporates different weights into one and acts in the same way as a stack of free weights you would find down the gym. There is a handle that goes inside the initial weight and then that one fits inside the next weight and so on. If you need to alter the weight and adjust then you just have to move the pin to another slot in the set so it is relatively simple to change weights.
You can increase weights in each dumbbell in increments of 5 pounds up to a maximum of 45 pounds. The minimum weight of each dumbbell is 5 pounds. So you effectively get 18 different weights in one unique system. By incrementing in small steps you get to gradually increase your strength in stages and prevent yourself from getting too bulky too soon. Another great feature is that this weight set is compact and balanced. Included is padding on the handle to protect your hand and wrist. A limited warranty of 10 years is added as another bonus.
The vast majority of reviews for this weights set are positive. Most customers highlighted the fact that you get many different weights in one set and are very cost-effective not to mention space saving due to how compact they are.

Most customers loved this weights set and commented on a number of positive aspects. They take up very little space due to the adjustable weights and are very solid and compact in their design. They are actually quite reasonably priced when you consider you would have to buy all 18 different weights otherwise. They are easy enough to use and change weights if they on a raised surface like a table.
There were one or two comments that were not so positive and focused on how hard it was to change the weights and adjust them if they were on the floor. It was better to put on a table before adjusting. Also, some customers commented on the fact that lifting the weights in a certain way would result in the pin sliding out while trying to train.
Overall, this weights set appears to be a high quality set and are perfect for strength training when you have little or no room to move in your home. They are cost-effective and very efficient at training as you can increment the weight in small stages to increase strength gradually rather than in one big jump. They are definitely worth checking out if embarking on an exercise regime.
