This company, Powerblocks, is awesome. With the older sets of powerblocks, people think they stick but most of the time the metal pins were just upside down. That’s why perhaps they upgraded the pins as the early years developed with bright orange markers on the top of their new Pro pins.

These are great dumbbells. I recommend them to everyone, and my extended family has in total 8 sets of these in various models as they developed over the years. The athleanBlox are sweet and the value is amazing!

I’ll condense it down for anyone much much more than this. Grab a bag, military. Then buy tube socks. Fill them with pea gravel. You will want quite a few socks. Then just squat with the bag. Lay it on your back do pushups or carry it like a backpack and do pull-ups. The options here a not limited. You have a lot of movements to choose from to build strength. And if its too light just add another sock or how many need! Simple. You can do presses rows and even deadlifts with the bag. And carry it all when your done. Add a band for some shoulder mobility work and even a long pvc pipe for some shoulder dislocates and you sir/mam are good to go! You’re welcome 😉

the toasters are so damn expensive and for some exercises i need round dumbbells.

Hey Jeff, can you review or recommend the Bowflex Revolution? I have the old Power Pro and I'm thinking about upgrading.

IMO one needs a pull-up bar, parallel/dip bars, some bands, and the power blocks. Can hit and exhaust everything with that
I'd also through in a sandbag and furniture sliders.

If you could only get one thing, get rings. They allow you to do pretty much every calisthenics and suspension training exercise there is at home for cheap (the price is at 15-20 €). Of course, it is going to be harder at first, but that's because it trains you stabilizer muscles. In terms of dumbbells, here in Germany ones that are like barbells (they have two short bars on which you can put all sorts of weights) are common, but I haven't seen them in the US that much. They might be cheaper than the fancy easy-to-adjust ones (but they can't be adjusted as quickly) and you can expand later on and have weights from different brands etc and if they (and you) are strong enough and have the right diameter, you might be able to use barbell plates.

Love these things.>>>ur2.pl/1190 Wanted to build a small home gym in my garage, but didn't want to take up a ton of space. They are perfect for giving you tons of options for weight increments while not creating the clutter of having 15 pairs of dumbbells. They are very easy to use and quickly adjust weight. The only knock as others have said is that if you did the smallest weight (5 pounds), it's a bit bulky for a 5 pound weight. Not a deal breaker for me by any means…I anticipated that. They look and feel very solidly built. Quality product

Buy cast iron dumbells in 10lbs increments. 10, 20, 30, 40 etc., and buy 2 sets of platemates so that you can add 5lbs to each set of dumbells as needed.

I zip-tied an old suitcase handle to a big rock, and that's my kettlebell. I also have some resistance bands, 2 dumbbells you can add plates to, a bench similar to the one in the video, a physio ball… and a mirror. That's my budget home set-up, and I am happy with it for now.

Another tip on the doorway pull up bar combo there are pull up bars that also connect at the bottom of the doorway for sit ups you can hook up the band and bar there and get more of an upward direction on the fly to hit the upper chest i love the home gym stuff it is so convenient

Buy four pulleys, a few metres of steel cables, carabineers and make an improvised crossover "machine" for variety. But all you really need is an adjustable bench, a power rack, an Olympic bar, a pair of adjustable dumbbells, and plates.

Great information!!! And with everyone selling their used equipment, I was able to collect a variety of quality, used hex DB's over several months. I recently sold them as a complete set (5-60 lbs) and purchased a "nice" set of DB's, 5-40 Lbs., with money to spare. Recently added a set of 50's to my home gym. (I know they don't perform any different, but an upgrade is an upgrade!) I've got a pretty nice, complete home gym, with very little money invested; relatively speaking, and it actually serves as motivation to working out. The amount of quality, used weight equipment online these days is staggering!!
