PowerBlock Elite Dumbbells

One of the best adjustable dumbbells, this model uses selector pins to remove and add weight manually and is much easier to adjust than other adjustable dumbbells.

Although, it is more likely to become loose after constant usage and would require you to switch weights when you just need to make an adjustment for 2.5 pounds of weight, it is a really popular model due to its expansion weight kits and its durability. It comes in a ‘cage’ style design which ensures user’s wrist protection too and costs a little less than the other models.

Bowflex Select 552

Another popular ‘dial-a-weight’ type which makes it easier for you to modify the weights without manually changing it. This model is a little expensive but its comfortability and durability and ease of use more than makes up for it.

They come with an ergonomically-designed, rubber handles which makes it easier to lift and offers you a weight range from 5 pounds to 52.5 pounds, which is a good range for beginners building up their muscles.

Ironmaster 75 Lb.

This traditional set of dumbbells is a little more expensive than the above two models because of the simple reason that it provides you a weight range of 5 pounds to 75 pounds and comes with a quick-lock feature which makes it easier to remove and add weights in just a few seconds.

Constructed with chrome steel, this dumbbell set is built to last and includes a bulky stand for the storage which is quite convenient but requires some space in your home.

StairMaster Pair

Another great ‘dial-a-weight’ dumbbells, this model is quite compact and convenient but allows you an option to increase the weights only in 5-pound increments.

They provide you with a professional feel and are super sturdy and comfortable to use. They provide you with a soft and contoured grip and a super convenient way to adjust your dials without keeping the dumbbell down, but you have to pay a hefty price for all this convenience.

Universal Power-Pak 445

One of the most popular dumbbell set for homes, this one is not only convenient but also attractive and can be stored inside your house without any fuss. It also comes with a matching stand and with its dial-a-weight style, you can easily modify the weights on your dumbbell.

It is also made of durable material but the weight plates are coated in plastic which means that you need to ensure that it doesn’t fall on the ground. It includes a no-slip thermoplastic grip which makes it easier to hold but there are a few drawbacks with this model. You can only modify weights in the increments of 5 pounds and it is quite costly in comparison to other models.
