Ease of Adjusting Weight:
Of course, one of the most important in selecting the best adjustable dumbbells is their ability to let you change the weights easily during a workout. There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a workout and trying to figure out how to change weights or spending precious time changing weights.
You should pay special attention to the quality of construction used in crafting the dumbbells. Inspect the locking mechanism and its durability. You do not want your weights to slip in the middle of your workout and break your leg. Pay close attention to the grip available on the various dumbbells.
There are many dumbbells with large grips that are not the best fit for those with smaller hands. A lot of the modern adjustable dumbbells feature ergonomic grips that fit themselves to your palm and fingers seamlessly.
The Universal Power-Pak 445 is another great set of lightweight dumbbells. The weights on these dumbbells can be adjusted from 4 to 45 pounds with a simple dial system. The weights can be incremented in easy 5 pound steps.
While offering less precision in their weight increments than the SelectTech, these dumbbells are shipped with a handy dumbbell stand customized to store the Universal Power-Pak 445 adjustable dumbbells.
They are equipped with a seamless and non-irritable thermoplastic grip. They are completely crafted from hardened plastic and are thus, very durable. The Universal Power-Pak 445 is priced significantly lower than the SelectTech, making it a great choice for beginner weight-trainers.
