Apart from saving space, an adjustable dumbbell set enables you to increase and decrease the weights in seconds and also lets you shift from one exercise to another with relative ease. All you need to do is to simply turn a knob or just slide a pin and then you are all set. One of the most attractive features of adjustable dumbbells is their compactness and the fact that they do not occupy much space as compared to regular weights. There are some which also come with fancy stands so that you can keep things neatly arranged and organized. Following are some of the best adjustable dumbbells that are totally worth it:

  • Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells

This variety comes in 2 options – a 50lb or 25lb (each side) variant. The adjustments include 5lb increments and there is also an exclusive slide adjustment system, wherein weights can be fixed and removed easily, of course with some practice. Although adjustable dumbbells are said to be pricey, the Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells are reasonably priced and this is definitely a good option to be considered for those who are conscious about their budget.

  • Universal Power-Pak 445 Adjustable Dumbbells

This variety resembles a piece of equipment of some Sci-Fi movie. It takes quite a while getting used to it but who wants to pay attention to aesthetics while buying dumbbells. The adjustable weights vary from 4lbs up to 45 lbs and all you need to do is to cleverly twist a knob and then the weights are properly adjusted and you’re good to go. It also has comfortable thermoplastic grips and a stylish stand to store those weights.

  • Ironmaster 75 lb Quick-Lock Adjustable Dumbbells

This variant comes with an included stand and is handy for storing plates when not in use. It is shaped and functions like that of a traditional dumbbell. In order to add or remove plates, all you need to do is to turn the quick release knob. Unlike the powerblock or bowflex systems that have the plates in place, in this system, one has to manually take off or add the weight plates as and when they are required. It also does not come with an add-on kit.

  • Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Adjustable Dumbbell

This variant adjusts weights ranging from 10lbs to 90lbs at just a turn of a dial. Renowned for quality, the bowflex company is available at a much cheaper price when compared to Power block Elite 90. It is important that one has to take proper care to make sure that the weights are not thrown down on the floor. It is also a much cheaper option that comes with the same convenience and adjustability like that of a high end adjustable dumbbell set.

  • PowerBlock Elite 90 Adjustable Dumbbell Set

This variant goes from 5 to 90-Pounds per hand, in accurate increments. You can comfortably and quickly shift the weights by sliding them back and forth by means of a simple pin selector. The set can also be expanded to a gigantic 130 pounds per hand if you purchase the additional 8-11 Elite Big Block kit.
