    Got a quick question- I just moved out of a sublet where I had dumbbells, and now I'm on my own. No weights!

    What are the best kind of dumbbells? I am curling 25 lbs per arm right now, and would like to work up to 40. I'm thinking to get the kind of dumbells with a bunch of plates that slide on a bar and then get spring-clipped on.

    I can't find them anywhere!

    Please advise

    Play it again near me is really nice :o

    I like their trade in program as well.

    I took in my 30lb db's there and came out with 65lb's :mamoru:

    Was very cheap with trade in. Basically 50% off.

    I don't have anything to trade in..

    To original poster - Just get the small straight bar and use BB's.. that's what I do. I just own two bars and all the weights up to 45lb plates.. Keeps me covered.

    there are some sweet adjustable dumbbells on ebay that come w/ a mini bench and "free" shipping for about ~$329 or so. i believe they go from ~5 - ~50 lbs on the dumbbells.

    "adjustable dumbbell" ---> ebay.com
