    Where do you guys get your dumbells? Is there any place that is signifigantly cheaper than anywhere else?

    I already have a powerblock, but I want bigger hex dumbells. 70lb'ers and up...


    I've looked at Dicks and Sporting Authority, but they're both ~80 cents per pound...

    local classifieds, craigslist.org, gyms going out of business, etc.....

    find them local otherwise the shipping cost will kill you

    is it really? My bad.

    guess i should've searched first...

    The power blocks can be expanded, but the expansion packs are expensive as hell, and there's no local place to buy, so the shipping is almost as expensive as the weight itself...

    I got the base set cheap, and to be honest, they feel fragile. I'd rather have the hex dumbells.

    I'll just keep looking local.
