Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells

Product Description:

The Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells is a space saver for training at home. A pair of these could replace 9 pairs of dumbbells. Moving a lever locks the weight you want and release what you do not need. With nine different settings starting from 10lbs up to 50 pounds, it can deliver an effective load for most exercises.

Product Features:

  • 9 different weight settings; 10lbs, 15lbs, 20lbs, 25lbs, 30lbs, 35lbs, 40lbs, 45lbs and 50lbs.
  • Beautiful chrome plated over heavy-duty metal.
  • It comes with two custom storage trays.
  • Fast adjustment allows changing your weight relatively easy.
  • Dumbbell size = 15.7 inches by 8 inches by 9 inches.
  • Individual dumbbell weight = 50lbs.
  • 1 year limited warranty

Good Points:

1) Space Saving Design: A pair of Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells takes as much space as a pair of fifty pound dumbbells but it replaces nine different dumbbells. If space is your concern, this fits the bill.

2) Fast and Easy Change Over: You can increase or decrease the weight by moving one adjustment lever on each side – simple and fast.

3) Heavy-Duty Construction: Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells deliver are made high-quality constructions.

4) Balance Control: This could be a good point or bad based on your knowledge and training. Many are used to dumbbells being balanced. Because Bayou Adjustable Dumbbells have a lever on each side, you need to move both levers to keep the balance. There are some advanced exercises for the grip that actually benefit from intentionaly imbalance in dumbbells.

Bad Points:

1) 5lb Increments: Moving up from 45lbs to 50lbs is an 11% increase. Moving up from 0lbs to 15lbs is a 50% increase. This is a disadvantage. However, by changing the exercise itself, you can work around it. For example, you can use lighter weights for a dumbbell fly and then switch to dumbbell bench press for the heavier weight.
2) Straight Handle: As I get older, I have become pickier. I prefer the handles that are ergonomically designed to fit my palm better.
3) The adjustment lever could get stuck: Some users report that the Bayou dumbbells adjustments lever get stuck.
