Best types of dumbbells


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Best types of dumbbells within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I started working out from home recently because my gym went out of business and I don't feel like driving across town in the traffic just to get in a workout and waste gas for nothing. So I'm going to set up my own home gym. My question is what type of dumbbells should I invest in. I'm looking online and there are different types including plastic and iron is there really a difference between the two

    it depends on how long you want them to last to be honest. don't buy online!

    buy from people who are getting rid of them like on craigslist etc. a lot of people bought home gym stuff and now are getting rid of it

    Weight wise, makes no difference, but plastic ones are better in use

    No and no.

    The issue with rubber and plastic is what ends up making your first point wrong.

    I can row a 200lbs (or more) dumbbell. In plastic it'd be 4 feet long. Rubber, even high density, is 3 feet long. Steel - 2 feet.

    Rubber etc is ok for average. But who wants to be average?

    The reason why some gyms are the way they are is many fold. Rubber (either covered or solid) damage the floor less. Many mainstream gyms limit the weights based on the kind of clients they want.

    I think it's a kinda rule. If a gym had 250lb steel dumbbells... it's gonna be freaky. My kinda place.

    Re: Best types of dumbbells

    rubber dumbbells are considered to be a safer choice than iron or chrome dumbbells. However, if you are allergic to latex or sensitive to strong odors, then iron dumbbells may be a better choice for your health ...
