An economical dumbbell set! This set includes only 10-lb and smaller standard weight plates, because larger plates become too unwieldy for dumbbells. We call it a 5-40lb set for simplicity, but you can actually load each dumbbell to 42.5 lbs.
These are solid steel dumbbell handles weighing 5 lbs each, not the flimsy hollow pipe version found at department stores that only weigh about a pound each.
These "pancake style" black weight plates are ground completely around the edge, leaving a smooth, round edge that's safe for the user and floor. They will fit on any bar or dumbbells handle that is 1" diameter. The weight plates are coated with a durable satin black enamel paint and baked for one hour to assure a finish that is chip and corrosion resistant.
