One of the most popular brands of adjustable dumbbells in the marketplace today is Bowflex, with the SelectTech 552 dumbbells being one of their most popular sets. This is because these dumbbells are not only going to save you lots of time in the gym. But they will also save you a tremendous amount of space. This pair of one dumbbells is equivalent to owning 15 sets of different weight dumbbells.
The Bowflex SelectTech 552 adjustable dumbbells use a unique dial system which will quickly and easily change the weight of the dumbbell just by moving the dial on each end of the dumbbell to your required weight.
These dumbbells have become so popular, because for lots of people its so important that they have quick and easy change of weight available to them. One very popular exercise program used by thousands of people all over the world is the P90X fitness program. The bowflex 552 dumbbells complement this workout brilliantly because of the speed in weight change and the tiny 2.5 pound increments up to the first 25 pounds that you can decrease and increase the weight of the dumbbell.
This is the set I use personally and I have only got good things to say about them. I've tried others, but this adjustable dumbbell set is the best by far. The quality of other sets just doesn't compare to the bowflex 552's. If you are looking for a set which not only looks attractive, but offers you comfortable and safe use then this set is going to be right up your street.
The weight available to you with these dumbbells starts at 5 pounds all the way up to a very impressive 52.5 pounds. Which is enough weight for even the strongest of people. If you need more weight than this then you will probably need to move up from the Bowflex SelectTech 552 adjustable dumbbells. Up to the Bowflex 1090's. These dumbbells start from 10 pounds up to a mammoth 90 pounds of weight in each dumbbell. If you are planning on training heavy then this is going to be the set for you.
The 1090 dumbbells cost a lot more money, so if you are not planning on lifting very heavy. It will be a wise move to stick with the 552's. If your plan is to get as strong as possible, then it might be worth spending that extra cash on the 1090's. So that you don't need to buy 2 sets, when the 552's become to light for you.
