    Time is money is not only a popular phrase, but a truth. Every bit of time we spend doing one activity is time lost doing something else. So if we can save time and money why shouldn’t we? One of the biggest time constraints facing Americans is time at the gym keeping physically fit. The problem becomes balancing time with family and friends against time spent at the gym working on our fitness. Building a home gym is a good way to not only save time, but money as well. A set of Cap Barbell Solid Hex Dumbbells are a great place to start when building a home gym. The Cap Barbell Solid Hex Single Dumbbell is constructed of extremely durable cast iron.

    They come in a range of weights from 5 lbs all the way up to 60 lbs. Dumbbells are an essential piece of any home gym and their flexibility provides great bang for your buck. Solid hex dumbbells made of cast iron are generally regarded as the highest quality available on the market. Other hex style exercise dumbbells are available to consumers, most notably models with rubber caps on the end. Many of these other units do not feature cast iron construction however, taking away from their durability. Online reviewers were thrilled with the quality of Cap Barbell weight lifting dumbbells. The sole complaint reviewers could find with the Cap dumbbells was the width of the handles on many of them. Some consumers noted that the small diameter of the handles made it harder to grip the dumbbells, especially the heavier weights. If you are looking to build a home gym, you couldn’t go wrong with well designed and durable dumbbells such as the Cap Barbell Solid Hex Single Dumbbell.

    Small product picture of a powerblock adjustable dumbbell.

    We all know the benefits of staying physically fit, but after a long day of work one of the hardest things to do is go to the gym. After all, you have to drive to the gym, wait to share equipment with other members, and then drive home. For some this can take more than an hour out of their day. Instead of joining a gym, consider building up your own home gym. There is no better place to start than with the PowerBlock Classic Adjustable Dumbbell Set. The Powerblock Adjustable Dumbbells gives you a total of 90 lbs of weight resistance training in two convenient packages. The weight sets offer individuals up to 45 lbs of resistance in each hand.

    With five pound weight increases starting at five pounds and maxing out at 45 lbs. The PowerBlock adjustable dumbbell set is an entire gym of weights in two compact packages. Switching weights is easy thanks to the selector pin, and with padded grips your hands and wrists will be protected during your workout. The PowerBlock adjustable weight dumbbells does have competitors in the industry, most notably the Bowflex SelectTech adjustable dumbbells. While the PowerBlock set is less expensive by roughly $55, the Bowflex set offers a higher weight maximum and greater increment flexibility at low weights. While the vast majority of users were very pleased with their Power Block Adjustable Dumbbell set, a few online reviewers did point out some disturbing faults with the design of the set. This group was quick to point out that the selector pin can easily slide out of the dumbbells when used during certain exercises, posing a serious safety hazard. The Bowflex adjustable free weights would make a valuable addition to any home gym, but as with any weight set caution should be exercised during their use.
