Bowflex Dumbbells | Bowflex Selecttech 552 Dumbbells


Bowflex dumbbells are the perfect choice for those who have a limited amount of space in which to do their exercise routines.

General Bowflex Dumbbell Review

The really nice thing about Bowflex dumbbells is their versatility and ease of use. With regular dumbbells, you are having to constantly interrupt your routine to take off or add on weights in preparation for the next routine. And while, it's true that you have to do the same with Bowflex dumbbells, the process is so much easier. And that's a testament as to how much forethought went into the design of these devices.

Bowflex dumbbells are easily adjustable with a mere switch of a dial. Total time to adjust - 5 seconds or less. Every click adds or decreases the weight on the dumbbell by 5 pounds. One of the primary reasons why Bowflex dumbbells have become so popular is their ease of use.

Another thing is that the Bowflex selecttech dumbbells have been specifically designed for use by people who live in small apartments or who have other space constraints.

The pricing for many will be a sticking point. Most models, if purchased new, will run you anywhere from $300-$500. However, to get the same ease of use with regular dumbbells, you would need to buy multiple sets and load each one up with the precise weight needed for a particular exercise. And once you end up adding up the cost of multiple sets, the cost disparity may not be as much as it first seemed.

In addition, if you are willing to hunt around a bit, you can often find sales or special promotions at brick and mortar and online stores.

The Bowflex Selecttech 552 Dumbbells

The Bowflex selecttech 552 adjustable dumbbells are one of the more lightweight Bowflex models. Perfect for those who are looking to tone up their muscles as opposed to building massive muscles.

The weights on the Bowflex Selecttech 552 dumbbells can be adjusted from a low of 5 pounds to a high of 52.5 pounds. The adjustments for the first 25 pounds of weight can be done in 2.5 pound increments. Once you reach 25 pounds, further upward adjustments can be done in 5 pound increments.

The 552 Selecttech comes with a manufacturer's 5-year warranty on the plates, and a 2 year warranty on parts.

Customers who have purchased this model give it a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

When buying online, Amazon is a great place because of their excellent customer service and flexible return policy. Catch them at the right time of the year and you'll also find promotions where they provide free shipping.

When purchasing the 552 model, make sure you get models made in 2009 or later. Models made before that used plastic to hold the plates on. Models made 2009 and later uses metal tabs to hold the weight plates on the stand. The metal is, of course, sturdier than the plastic ones.
