If it's been awhile since you went to the gym and you just can't get excited about freeing up a couple of hours to drive-workout-shower-drive then these Bowflex Dumbbells are just the thing to get you off the couch and busting out a few quick reps at home when you have a free moment.
Keeping a regular workout schedule can be tough but these adjustable dumbbells make it a lot easier to fit a workout into a busy schedule or just avoid the hassle of the crowd at the gym. Here are a few of the features that will help you get the maximum results in the least amount of time with the Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells.
Well Suited For High Intensity Workouts
If you are doing some kind of fast paced workout like P90x, Insanity, Turbofire or some hybrid that includes weights the dial selector on these dumbbells helps you get on to the next exercise fast with the right weight. You'll get the burn you need in the minimum time while you keep your heart rate in the training range.
The plates click in securely and you don't have to worry about plates sliding off. It's a huge improvement over standard dumbbell sets where you had to constantly fiddle with the collar to change out the weights and you would sometimes even have a collar slide off in the middle of a set. There is also an optional stand you can get that keeps them at just the right level without having to bend down all the time between exercises to make adjustments and get your grip.
Progress Gradually And Breakthrough Sooner
You can start small and progress gradually with a faster breakthrough to the next weight with these Bowflex dumbbells. The 552s start at 5lbs each and have small increments of just 2.5 lbs in the lower weights up to 25 lbs. The lighter weights will let you target smaller muscle groups but with up to 52.5 lbs on each dumbbell you can also work your chest, back and even your legs with some lunges and squats.
Having a complete set of dumbbells like this in your house or apartment doesn't take up a lot of room. You get the equivalent of fifteen sets of dumbbells that take up only about 2 square feet of space. By keeping them close and accessible instead of collecting dust in the garage or under the bed, you can jump on even the smallest spark of motivation. Once you get started you won't want to stop.
You'll love the results you can get by just squeezing in short workouts whenever you have a few minutes. You get the most out of your time while building muscle, burning fat and boosting your physical performance with regular workouts.
