Interested In the PowerBlock Adjustable Dumbbells? Don't Think About Spending a Penny Until You Read Every Word On This Page!

The Powerblock dumbbells are one of the most popular adjustable, quick change dumbbells on the market. Backed by a 10 year warranty, these "made in the USA dumbbells" are extremely durable, replaces dozens of regular dumbbells and can be easily stored away under your bed or in the closet.

If you're considering the Power Block, then chances are you already know the benefits of strength training, and you probably want the best, space efficient dumbbell on the planet. But with all the different Power Block dumbbell models out there, you might be scratching your head and thinking which one is right for you.

Here is an overview of what's available:

Personal Power Block

This set adjusts from 5-45 lbs in 5 lb increments in each hand. This set has a maximum weight of 45 lbs per hand and cannot be made heavier than the 45 lb maximum weight per hand.

The Sports Power Block

This set adjusts from 3-21 lbs in 3 lb increments. This set has a maximum weight of 21 lbs per hand and cannot be made heavier than the 21 lb maximum weight per hand

Elite Trainer 2.5-50

The Elite Trainer Set allows you to adjust the weight by 2.5 lbs within the weight range of 2.5-50 lbs per dumbbell.

The Elite Set 5-50

The Elite handle weighs 5 lbs without the chrome adder weights in the handle. You can expand this dumbbell by using the add-on kits. The 40 lb Elite Add-On Kit would take the set from a maximum weight of 90 lbs in each hand. The Elite Big Block Kit would take you to a maximum weight of 130 lbs in each hand.

The Elite 5-90

This set is expandable to 130 lbs per hand using Elite Big Block Kit.

The Elite Set 5-130

This is the Elite Power Block dumbbells in one package. The weight ranges from 5-130 lbs, and adjusts in 5 or 10 lb increments.

The Power Block Pro Rexan

The weight ranges from 5-85 lbs base set comes with plates 1-8 and adjusts in 5 or

10 lb increments.

Big Pro Rexan 5-125lbs

These are basically the same as the Pro Rexan, with the add-on weights included bring the weight up to 125lb for each dumbbell.

Things You Should Know When Choosing a Power Block Dumbbell Set

Keep in mind that the add-on kit (which makes your dumbbells up to 130 lbs each) is compatible with only a few select models.

If you don't plan on building muscle, then the Personal and Sports Power Block should be fine for you.

However, if strength, power, and muscle mass are one of your goals, then consider the Power Block Elite Set or the Power Block Pro Rexan models. These models are upgradeable to a maximum of 125-130 lbs for each dumbbell if you purchase an add-on. You can also buy the complete set, saving you from upgrading at a later time.

Other Benefits

Patented Selector Pin Design- Power Block dumbbells use a selector pin to change weights, much like a weight stack machine at a gym.

Padded Wrist Supports- Power Block offers padded wrist supports within the construction of the dumbbells.

Who is it for?

If you're sick of waiting in line at the health clubs for a dumbbell and want to work out in the comfort of your own home, the power block is much more convenient and cost effective than multiple sets of regular dumbbells.

If you're a personal trainer then these dumbbells are great for your studio. If you're doing in-home personal training for your clients, nothing beats a set of power blocks and the foldable Travel Bench for portability and convenience.
