Topic: Adjustable dumbbells?

Should i get these adjustable dumbbells? http://gymat.blogspot.com/

Basically these dumbbells can replace 1 entire rack of dumbbells and supports any weight to 24kg. Its great for exercising at home since i intend to do P90X which requires me to switch dumbbells quickly.

No, these are way too expensive.

P90X is also effective with push up bars, chin up bars, resistance bands and normal weights.

$150 for a pair of adjustable weights would be reasonable.

Hi, i agree with you. But the added costs of all these equipment, especially with just a few normal dumbbells, would be quite expensive too.

Hmm, i meant i will incur more costs if i buy multiple sets of these $90 dumbbells. I'm fine with the bands, if only they could totally replace the use of dumbbells. Anyway i have decided to buy the adjustable dumbbells because they are totally awesome!

Adjustable dumbelss are not that good as per my suggestion. Varying weigh will vary in results.

I got mine from Primero Fitness . Heard good things about their virgin rubber dumbbells. All their dumbbells and barbells are adjustable.
