    Best Strength Training Purchase I’ve Ever Made!!, November 15, 2009

    This review is from: Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Adjustable Dumbbell (Single) (Sports)

    I’m a certified personal trainer, I’ve been lifting regularly for nearly a decade and after 3 months with my Selectech 1090 dumbbells I can tell you with absolute certainty they are the best purchase I’ve ever made to get a stronger, more muscular body.

    First off let me tell you why I decided to get them since my motivations will help explain their benefits:

    Already knowledgeable on lifting – Like I said, I’m a certified personal trainer and I already know how to do tons of exercises with proper form. If I had no idea how to do strength training, these dumbbells would be pretty intimidating, and I’d probably want to get a home gym machine to guide me through the proper motions.

    180 is Just Right – For someone light the 1050’s that are 50 pounds would probably be adequate resistance. By the same token, if your a 250 pound lineman on your Division 1 College football team, or a power lifter these weights will be inadequate for you. 180 pounds is enough resistance for most people, but if your an elite athlete in a high weight class these just aren’t going to cut it long term. You should go with a full olympic weight set.

    I weigh about 180 pounds, so I figure If I can bench, row, squat and deadlift the dumbbells which are equivalent to my body weight for 10 reps I’m strong enough and don’t need to worry about getting bigger. I think most people feel that way and these will fit the needs of the vast majority of users.

    Workout By Myself – If you have a spotter to help you adjust weights, or spot you from dropping a heavy bar on your throat then barbell sets are a little more appealing but since I work out by myself, quickly adjusted weights and dumbells that I can let go of without decapitating myself are very appealing.

    Limited Space – I didn’t want to fill a room with a whole gym or weight set. These take up virtually no space in the corner of a room.

    Good Investment – Buying all the dumbbells you’d need to have 0-90 would cost well over a thousand dollars, these are an incredible deal given the flexibility they give you.

    Glutton for punishment – I love doing drop sets where after I reach muscular failure with a weight, I quickly reduce the weight squeeze out a few more reps and continue on like that until I pass out, throw up or get stronger. Changing weights with the turn of a dial could not be faster or more convenient. I like to keep my workouts pretty intense and short, not having to waste time or focus fiddling with dropping and adding weight helps me get a better intense workout more quickly.

    Too Lazy and Cheap for Gyms – I’m one of those freak shows that actually really enjoy working out, but I’m way too lazy too commute to the gym, and too cheap to pay for membership. Plus I get hot and I’d rather workout with my shirt off which would be weird at a public gym. I have an easier time making sure I get my workouts in when I can just pick up and do it whenever I feel like it without going out of my way. I’d been doing body weight exercises like pushups and squats for a while and I was happy with it, but I wanted to throw something new at my body and increase the intensity of my workouts. These give me all the convenience and flexibility of a home gym, without having to give up an unreasonable amount of space or money.

    Dumbbells Rule! – Dumbbells are better than machines or barbells for real world strength. Not only do they develop your stabilizing muscles and core better, but they get both sides of your body strength symmetrical, unlike machines or barbells where the stronger side can pick up the slack from the weaker side. If someone can bench 100 they won’t be able to dumbbell press that much, where as someone who can dumbbell press 100 will be able to bench much more!

    Love Bodyweight Exercises: I believe the body responds better to bodyweight exercises like dips, chinups and squats than equivalent exercises that don’t move the body through space like machine leg presses or lat pull downs. So I’d actually rather use dip/chinup tower with added resistance from the dumbbells on a dipping belt rather than, use equivalent exercises on a machine.
