In my post about building a home gym I mentioned that you can buy new dumbbells, without weights, for $15 per dumbbell. So, today when I found two dumbbells and 12 kg weights for a total of only $27 I simply had to buy it. You won’t come far with 12 kg but because they are adjustable, I can add some of my old weights while I’m on the lookout for the next deal.
The main advantage with having multiple adjustable dumbbells is so you can go through the whole workout without having to move the weights around. It doesn’t take much time but every small distraction decreases your chances of completing the workout.
They also had a 10 kg rubber weight (at the top) on sale for half the price – $26.
