    Best review I’ve seen on youtube about these dumbbells hands down, great ending by the way. Keep your kids happy =]

  • JosephMcCantry says:

    Flawless review! I wish I was the person who invented those adjustable weights. I could pay someone to carry me away after a round of p90x.

    Hello there! Have you heard about the Fat Blast Furnace (google it)? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my work buddy burned plenty of useless fat.

    Great review , exactly what I needed to help me decide which one to buy, thx alot I’m gna get the 1090.

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    Thanks man

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    No.. first, I’ve had mine for over a year and have no issues. 2nd, these things are so popular and retain their resale value.. you can find used ones on craigslist… if they were so weak and breaking easily, they wouldn’t still be selling and reselling them.

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    Thanks man.. I appreciate that… yeah, with a little thought, time and effort, it’s not too bad! :)

  • NealKoke05 says:

    good review man, I started P90x with an adjustable pair of dumbells, 20 & 30 lbs and of course this was not enough variety. So i memorized the chest and back, shoulders and arms, legs and back workouts and used the weights at the gym to perform these routines. I am about to enter phase 2 and It would be a lot easier for me to buy these weights rather than memorize the upper body workouts in phase 1 and go to the gym. So thanks again!

  • NFLfilmsfanclub says:

    VERY WELL DONE. Finally, someone doing professional like home you tube, videos. That are to the point and exactly what you need to know. Thanks again.

  • Magx says:

    I heard they break easily (well, the dumbells, not the kids ;) ) . Is that true ? did you this kind of problem(s) ? do they ‘sound’ weak (when your lifting them) ?

  • Quinn77Showtime says:

    Hahahaha ending was awesome … I have a 4 yr old and he tries to work out with me. Hearing your kids laughing made my day lol

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    haha.. I meant that if you already had kids and you couldn’t afford new 552s/1090s, then just use the kids you have as a cheap alternative.

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    I don’t see how that can happen.. sounds untrue. When you lift them up (doing a bench press), the weights are hanging on the bar, it seems almost impossible for them to fall off. You’ll see what I mean when you use them. When you’re doing a bench press, the plates are like an upside down U that is hanging on the handle.. so they can’t really fall off.

  • norcovpssix1 says:

    since when are kids a low cost alternative? pretty sure they cost a hell of alot more then these weights do

  • ldnguyen45 says:

    Just bought a pair of the 552 but haven’t had a chance to use it yet. One question I have is that I’ve read before where the weights came off and broke the red plastic part as they were working out (some getting hit in the face while bench pressing). Is it better to always keep the red plastic part facing up while doing any routine to put the least stress on the weights and prevent this from occurring? Any advice would help.

  • favz1 says:

    Hey.. I have those “other” adjustable weights too!

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    @Patamath87 Hmm Cheap Table and 180lbs worth of weights on it… doesn’t sound like a good idea. Especially if it’s cheapo walmart table :)

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    Awesome.. glad it helped.

  • SymbioticFitness says:

    I don’t think so.. I think they would break.

  • astraz4 says:

    Can you use them as push up bars? or will they break?
