When it comes to long-term versatility and cost-efficiency. There’s nothing better than expandable dumbbells like the PowerBlock Elite 90 Adjustable Dumbbells.
As the step-up model to the Elite 50, this pair comes in a larger weight cap of up to 90 pounds each – just like having 28 separate sets of dumbbells at your disposal.
It can also be shared with the missus, as it features a starting weight of 5 pounds and can be adjusted in small 2.5 pound increments for versatility. Like its brethren, the weight plates are square in shape to achieve a compact profile and eliminate those storage woes.
Since it doesn’t roll off like the circular, old-school dumbbells, you can easily use it as your very own push-up bar to mix things up a bit.
A Closer Look at the PowerBlock Elite 90 Adjustable Dumbbells
Here are some exclusive features of PowerBlock Ellite 90 Dumbbell. If you are interested about this dumbbell, can read these features to know more about it.
56 Dumbbells in One
The Elite 90 dumbbells have adjustable weights from five to 90 pounds, which makes it ideal for casual and serious weightlifters alike. Combined with its small 2.5 pound increments, it’s as good as having 28 separate pairs of free weights, or up to 56 individual dumbbells in one convenient set.
It’s also among today’s most versatile and economical models, as it gives you the option of purchasing extra weights for less than the cost of getting individual dumbbells. Better yet, it’s expandable up to 130 pounds per hand as you get stronger, so you don’t have to blow your budget on a completely new pair.
If you’re a fan of CrossFit, P90X, and high-intensity interval training, then the Elite 90 set has got you covered. This is made possible by the dumbbell’s ability to switch weight plates quickly, so you can enjoy speed-circuit routines without missing a beat.
Instead of relying on a central bar to hold the plates in position, all you need to do is slide the locking pins in place at your desired weight and you’re good to go. Even beginners won’t have trouble changing plates since there’s a color-coded guide on top of each dumbbell that serves as quick reference.
If you have ever tried lifting dumbbells or barbells, then you already know that there are some drawbacks to the traditional rounded design. Take for example the fact that circular weights can roll off, which poses the risk of injury.
But this is not the case with the PowerBlock dumbbells, since the weight plates are square-shaped and has a consistently flat bottom. This means that when you set them down, they stay down. In addition, the ergonomic handles are equally well-made, as they provide a comfy and steady grip even without those fancy ridges and curves.
Another disadvantage of circular weights is that it can be difficult to stack and store unused plates, along with the bars that hold them. This is especially true for apartment dwellers, or those who have limited space in their home. The Elite 90 on the other hand replaces up to 2,565 pounds of free weights with a single set.
They’re designed in a way to take up very little space, as each dumbbell spans a mere 16 inches long – and that’s with all the plates combined. It should also be noted that this model is compatible with PowerBlock’s large column stand (sold separately), a free-standing rack that holds the weights at a more accessible height, and stores them safely when not in use.
These adjustable dumbbells measure 16 by 6 by 6 inches (L x W x H). And weighs in at 90 pounds each. It is covered by the manufacturer’s 10-year home-use warranty on the whole set, including the handles and plates.
