One of the most commonly used (and essential) types of workout equipment you can use to improve your physical appearance and reach your fitness goals is dumbbells.
They can be used in countless ways and are incredibly cost-effective. Investing in dumbbells for your home gym is the best action if you have a busy schedule due to work, family, or any other reason that prevents you from visiting your local commercial gym.
Choosing dumbbells, on the other hand, is a tough choice. Various types of dumbbells are available, leaving you with the question, “Which dumbells should I buy?”
In this article, we’ll go over the different types of dumbbells available at Bells of Steel and provide a comprehensive guide to help you choose the best dumbbells for your home gym.
Type of Dumbbells
Dumbbells are categorized into two types: fixed dumbbells and adjustable dumbbells:
Fixed dumbbells have a fixed weight and are what most people envision when they think of dumbbells. They are stable and sturdy, with a good grip. You can superset or dropset using it without changing or adjusting your weight.
The fixed dumbbells have the disadvantage of taking up a lot of space and being rather costly. However, if you have the budget and the space, these are your options for fixed dumbbells.
The classic Rubber Hex Dumbbells provide an extensive range of weight that’s easily accessible. Their rubber-encased heads are fixed and hexagonal in shape. This particular shape makes them safer to use as they won’t roll while you’re recovering from a set.
The Rubber Hex Dumbbells have an ergonomic handle with medium knurling, giving a solid grip and maximum comfort. The weight is accurate to +/- 3% and sold in sets of 5-50lbs and 55-80lbs in 5lb increment pairs.
A rack of these Rubber Hex Dumbbells in your home gym will look great and motivate you to work out every day if you have a lot of space to spare.
Our Commercial Urethane Dumbbells feature stainless steel fixed heads pressed into the handles. The handles are welded into place for optimal durability. You can drop them confidently because they come with a 5-year warranty.
They are available in sets of 5-50lbs, 55-80lbs, and 85-100lbs with a 2% tolerance from the indicated weight (which is standard for commercial-grade quality).
A big perk of the fixed urethane dumbbells is they are odour free and requires less cleaning so they are very popular with most commercial, school, and government-run gyms. You can also check out our blog – What Are Urethane Bumper Plates, to learn more about urethane.
The second significant benefit of these dumbbells over conventional rubber hex is that they are up to several inches more compact in heavier increments. It gives you more range of motion and makes them less awkward.
Adjustable dumbbells are built with detachable elements. Some of them may break or incur damages if dropped. Even if you get high-quality adjustable dumbbells, you will still have to deal with removable parts because that is how they function. Fixed and adjustable dumbbells should last a long time, however, adjustable ones require more maintenance.
Anyone serious about strength training would want to have a variety of weights for different exercises and progressively overload their muscles. The NÜOBELL Adjustable Dumbbells eliminate the need for multiple sets, saving you a lot of space and making your life easier. They’re also economical.
NUOBELL adjustable dumbbells allow you to modify your weight in seconds with a simple twist. There is an easy-to-read dial that indicates whatever weight you have selected. Your weights are placed in a portable cradle for simple adjustments and movements.
Another design feature that distinguishes NUOBELL is its knurled handle, which resembles a conventional dumbbell. NUOBELL will feel right at home if you’ve worked out with traditional dumbbells.
Industrial Loadable Dumbbells are a good alternative for costly and crowded dumbbell sets. The sleeves on these loadable dumbbells are Olympic-style, and they rotate. The weight is adjusted by adding or removing plates from either side, and each sleeve has a threaded end with a collar to keep the plates in place.
The Industrial Loadable Dumbbell’s shaft has a rust-resistant black cerakote finish. This black-gold combination not only gives the appearance of a luxury bar but also helps to reduce rust buildup.
The best feature of the Industrial Loadable Dumbbells is that you can use the weight plates you already have and use them for dumbbell workouts. Because of the reduced initial cost for the majority of home gym owners, they are often far more affordable to begin with than other adjustable dumbbells.
It has finer narrowing and bushings than the others, which you can’t really get with the fixed head and adjustable.
How To Choose The Perfect Dumbbells For Your Home Gym Summary
Dumbbells are an absolute must-have in your workout arsenal. We highly recommend dumbbells because of their versatility and convenience.
Choosing between adjustable and fixed-weight dumbbells can be overwhelming. The decision is mainly determined by your fitness goals, budget, and free space in your home.
