With 90 pounds of weight that only takes up a very small space, it’s a no-brainer that these are perhaps the best on the market. Powerblock is the leader in adjustable dumbbells and this particular model is the best of the best. Like the Powerblock Classic, these dumbbells feature a sturdy, unique design that allows you to get rid of all those messy free weights that may be cluttering up your floors.
Truly, the best feature of this particular model is the shear amount of weight that you get. 90 pounds is more than enough for most people out there so once you purchase a set like this, you are set for life. I have owned a set of 90 pound Powerblocks for over 2 years now and have never used all 90 pounds at one time other than just trying them out. I’ll admit, I’m not a heavy weight lifter, but I like to have the option available for growth.
If you have a set of these along with a good weight bench, you’ll have the perfect setup to build the perfect physique inside your own home. Here are a few notable features of this 90 pound model.
The amount of weight
You won’t be able to find this amount of quality weight for the price that you pay for these. Even though I own these, I’m still amazed that I can fit 90 pounds into a small section of my workout room. Especially when you consider I used free weights and had them scattered all over my floor for years.
Powerblock doesn’t sacrifice quality on any of there products and when you use these dumbbells, you’ll know that you are holding something special in your hands. They have a high quality feel to them and are well balanced at all weight levels.
I feel safe using these even at the highest amount of weight possible. I wouldn’t be able to say that for all adjustable dumbbells on the market considering that I have used most all of the popular models. I would use all 90 pounds available on these dumbbells without even giving a second though to the safety.
Ease of Use
I’ve mentioned how easy Powerblock dumbbells are to use in other reviews throughout the site and this model is no different. It uses the same pin feature as all of their products and makes changing weights a snap.
What about the bad?
I don’t have anything to say bad about these other than the fact that you have to be careful with dropping them. They are not made to be dropped after use like the solid steel ones you would use in the gym. These will break, especially if you are using the maximum amount of weight on them. I’m not sure I’d want to take the chance on dropping anything that I paid this amount of money for. Even if I knew they’d survive the fall, I still wouldn’t want to drop them.
If you are looking for more weight than the standard 50 pounds that most people buy, do yourself a favor and get these. Even if you can’t lift that much weight currently, if you plan on any type of growth in the future, it’s important to have something to grow into. 90 pounds is for the serious weight lifters and those who take their workout serious. This dumbbell set is definitely for the serious exerciser and will provide you with great workouts for many years to come.
