I keep looking back at these things.
At first glance they seem to solve a real issue of replacing a dumbbell rack for a home gym.
The whole problem with dumbbells (other than the size a full set will take up) that aren't instagrab or individuals is that you take time between exercises pulling plates on and off. This really does impact a workout enormously over the course of it's/your lifetime.
Then I keep hitting the same wall. Most of them stop at or around 50lbs.
Honestly, most guys are going to need more than this for numerous exercises (if they manage to stick to a regime).
The ones that go higher seem to be space saving only and not the quick dial and grab design, and they're in the same ballpark prices of full racks with pairs of Dumbbells again.
The only one that does go this high is the bowflex 1090, and...Just look at the price on a pair of those...
I really like the idea of all of these. I just wish they had a heavier option with the singles that wasn't an absolute ripoff.
It would save me a lot of room, actually allow a decent workout without continuous pausing to slap on/take off new plates, which would justify it's purchase instantly.
I just thought I'd chime in and mention that these would be a really great starter set, and likely a better long term option for ladies, but if you're planning on pressing exercises, and even bicep curls, you're going to hit that wall fairly quickly and start eyeing up pairs of single heavier DB's again. And then a rack to hold them...And then some more...And you're back to no space in your garage again :D
