    I used to sell these, I averaged selling 15-20 sets a week.

    The people who didnt use them didnt have an issue with them. But the people who actually religiously used them, I had almost 100% failure rate on them. The plastic that covers them cracks and then its impossible to adjust the weights

    Look at Powerblocks as a better alternative

    No way. You can't have a Bowflex Body without a Bowflex.

    What weight do you need up to?

    You can get a pair of the Sport Block 5.0's that go up to 50lbs for $269 (cheaper then Bowflex, only 2.5lbs lighter)

    Sport Blocks 9.0 are $349 and you can upgrade them in the future up to 90lbs if you want

    Pro-Form makes some Fuzion ones that are metal plates. Adjustable to 50 lbs, not sure if they make a heavier set.

    No they're not, you didn't adjust them right.

    You can even though skull crushers, from my experience, are usually done with an EZ curl bar.
