What experts liked
Handles are contoured for an easy, comfortable grip.
- BestReviews
Perfect for beginners who want to invest in an at-home workout set, but not go all the way quite yet. The best part is the rack is small and easy to assemble.The weights also have contoured handles and a hexagon shape which allows for safe handling.
- Rolling Stone
Made of wear-proof vinyl, the dumbbell coating is distinguished by high resistance to tearing and all sorts of physical damage.
- Best Advisor
The weights themselves are cast iron covered in neoprene for improved grip and to help protect them if they drop on the floor. The weights won’t be rolling away either thanks to their hexagonal shapes.
- Spy

What experts didn't like
The stand is a bit narrow and can tip easily if bumped or when removing weights.
- BestReviews
The dumbbell might feel a bit slippery in wet hands.
- Best Advisor
The only downsides are the price mark-ups and the fact that some assembly of the rack is required, but the set ships with all the tools you need.
- Spy
The stand is flimsy.
- The Workout Digest
Flimsy stand. No stand assembly instructions.

From The Manufacturer

Training with dumbbells allows you to select resistance training exercises based on their similarity to actual movements that occurs during sports. Dumbbells require more balance than training with barbells or machines, and balance is crucial for optimal performance. Dumbbells also require more muscular control than barbells, thus enhancing kinesthetic awareness. The best part of training with dumbbells is it allows the athlete to train through a greater range of motion than barbells on some exercises. Understand that it is sometimes more valuable to trade heavy weights (Barbells) for more sport-specific movements. Styles: 20-pound dumbbell set with stand: 3 pairs of dumbbells in 2-pound, 3-pound, and 5-pound sizes; 32-pound dumbbell set wth stand: 3 pairs of dumbbells in 3-pound, 5-pound, and 8-pound sizes; Vinyl coated dumbbells (Pair): From 1-pound to 20-pound colored vinyl coated hexagon dumbbells in pair; AT A GLANCE: Wide selection of dumbbells; Hexagon shape for easy storage; Sets come with dumbbells and stands; Vinyl dumbbells come at a pair; 2-year warranty.
