One Crippled Thumbs Up!

Well I’ll tell you whut ladies and gents this is a real solid, heavy duty dumbbell set. I love the fine, waxy black coating on the ends framing the shiny metal pole in between. I’ve seen some customers complaining saying that “they’re too fragile” or “how heavy duty are they?” Well, they’re so heavy, so cosmically sturdy, so metal that I fractured my right thumb with them! That’s right, two world-shaking fractures! I tripped while carrying one in each hand and smashed my right thumb in between them. How clumsy! I’m right handed, so as you can imagine it’s quite hard to do anything. Buttoning pants, writing, wiping, all a struggle. But I shouldn’t be complaining because these dumbbells have taught me three important lessons: 1.) Resourcefulness is necessary. Learn to write with both hands in case of emergencies. Don’t wait like I did. 2.) Health insurance is important. Always have it so if you exercise too hard it doesn’t ruin your wallet! 3.) Like Alfred said to Batman on his death bed, “With great power comes great responsibility.” If you have this much power in your weak hands, be sure it doesn’t cripple you.
Solution to painful metal grip.

If you want to maintain your princess hands, you can do what I did or something similar. First, clean it with 70% Alcohol and then mild Soap-water. Remove all moisture. Second, wrap 3M_microfoam_surgical_tape (4 inch tall roll) all around the metal stippling. Third, wrap Tennis_Overgrip around the microfoam tape (if you don’t know how to use these, YouTube it). The handle feels perfect and does not require workout-gloves. This method is tedious and time-consuming, but if you are a perfectionist like me, this might be a solution for you. The microfoam tape provides cushion and it sticks to the bar. The tennis overgrip keeps the microfoam tape in place so the handle modification can last long. You can use whatever overgrip, but I recommend a tacky grip. My personal favorite is Wilson Profile Overgrip.
Good Quality Good Price

It’s pretty amazing Amazon can deliver things like this in a couple of days for free and at this price point. The weights are the least expensive option for this padded configuration I could find. I can’t speak to durability if you are going to work out to exhaustion and drop them but the ones I got are only 35 lb and I’m using them for regular curls and dumbbell exercises done on a hardwood floor, where I just put the weights down afterwards. These weights are perfect for that. The plating seems good, with no flaking and the rubber-like coating does not mar or scuff my wood floor, which is all I was looking for. The only slight negative was that I had to wash the weights with dish soap before use, as the smelled of grease or some other manufacturing byproduct. No big deal though, whatever it was was clear and easily rinsed off. Also, Amazon could package these a bit better, the boxes were just barely still boxes by delivery time but I didn’t note any damage to the product. So, really great cheap dumbells; I’ll buy these again if I need 45 lb in the future as there is no 40 offered.
Great quality, especially for the price

Great quality, especially for the price. Note that these are sold as single weights, so order two if you want a set!
These Dumbbells are Great!

Man I really love these dumbbells. I got a pair of 10lbs to do some laterals and renegade rows with to start out with and test the dumbbells out. I tried those exercises and they felt just right in my hands. They were comfortable to hold and the handle made it possible to add on a grip enhancer to get more of a forearm pump. For $20 for a pair this is a steal. I am going to get a pair of 15 lbs and also 20lbs, maybe a 25 lbs single so I can do more exercises. I previously had a Bowflex SelectTech 552 pair of dumbbells and while I really liked those also, these do the job just as well and are not so dainty. You really had to be careful with how you treat the 552s. I don’t throw my weights around but it’s nice to know that if they slip or you do have to let them go they are not going to get damaged. Certain exercises like the Renegades are advised not to be done with the 552s. Those dumbbells can’t take the pressure of your bodyweight. Also, if you are like me who is not looking to lift more than 35 lbs in one hand then these Cap Dumbells might be more cost effective and in a way space saving. Also you can switch from weight to weight easier than dialing up the weight. The 552s were bulky and took up space.
They’re a bit heavy

This old-fashioned phone is incredibly heavy, and the reception is just awful. They don’t make any phone cases for it, and I can’t find the headset port. I pick them up and put them down sometimes for a few minutes at a time, a few times a week. On the plus side, they’re comfortable in my hands and don’t dig into my palm or fingers like others. And if I ever forget how heavy it is, they helpfully have that numbered on the side. Mine weigh “25 heavies”.
Really good dumbbells.

These are really nice dumbbells. The handles feel great in your hand. The only negative is that the black covering can dent and scratch because I have some heavy dumbbells in the back of the closet and I drag them over other heavy dumbbells in the closet. I would also like to mention there was a promotion for a dumbbell for a really great price for prime members which I suppose was to garner customer good will. Unfortunately only one could be purchased at that price. You were blocked from buying another for a week at which time the price went up by ten dollars. This generated ill will so I bought over 300 bucks worth at local sporting goods store whose price was not too far off. I did not care. I was suffering from ill will.
