    Adjustable dumbells Powerbloc Bowflex


    I workout at a gym, but have some basics such as a squat rach and bench at home. I am now looking to get rid of my olympic dumbbells as they are pain to change up.

    I am wondering about experiences using the Powerbloc vs the Bowflex adjustable systems. I have also found some other brands, but these are th top of my list I thnk. What are the opinions out there from those who have actually used these or own these (looking at the store doesn't count unless you did a workout there).

    Really? Noone has an opinion. I am leaning towards Powerblock but I wanted some feedback. Just bought a CAP Oly Barbell 8 months ago and I've already broken it so I want to go with good quality this time. I know Powerblovk has a good rep but they seem a bid "odd" in shape...

    I've got an older set of powerblocks + the stand

    that set in the pic is the up to 125 or 130 set, I have "just" the up to 85lb set. Its quick, its easy, and feels solid. I tried the blowflex ones before I bought those and wasn't impressed. The ironmaster ones are kinda neat too http://www.ironmaster.com/store/Quic...Rack-pr-2.html but overall the powerblocks seems the nicest.
