19 Mar The One Piece of Exercise Equipment You Need for Your Home
Plenty of gym equipment is available, but PowerBlocks are the only thing you need.
We consider PowerBlocks the gold standard for home gym exercise equipment. PowerBlocks provide a great home solution for your gym equipment needs. You don’t need row after row of dumbbells or be stuck with a limited range of weights because of cost. Although we use a 90 lb set, the 50 lb set will be sufficient for most trainees. You can set the weights for 5 lb to 50 lb in 2.5 lb increments. However, if you eventually need to add weight, you can purchase 70 lb and 90 lb additions but only if you buy the Elite Set. The Personal Trainer set is limited to 50 lbs.
PowerBlocks are idea for home exercise equipment because they use space so efficiently. Rather than requiring you to buy a room full of dumbbells, PowerBlocks act just like a weight stack at the gym, with a weight handle that fits inside the first weight, which fits inside the second, which fits inside the third, etc. Simply change the selector pin to the weight you want and your dumbbells are ready to go. The 2.5 lb increments can be adjusted by adding or removing two smaller weights housed in the PowerBlocks. We’ve been using our 90 lb set for over 10 years with no sign it of wearing down.
