With a solid metal body, you are going to feel as if you are working out at the gym, rather than at home, with the Bayou Fitness system.
The adjustable weight system is easy to use, and allows you to go from one weight, to another, with just modifying the weight; you do not have to own an entire weight set anymore; you can eliminate a number of weights, with this simple new adjustable system, for use in the home, or on the go, for a great workout every time.
The heavy duty, chrome plated weight set is high quality and is meant to last. It also comes with a storage tray, so you can set it aside in any corner when it is not in use, and it will take up virtually no space at all in the home, or a small gym studio that you are going to use it at.
It is fluid resistant, and it features a sleek design, as it is metal plated, not plastic, like most of the other systems you will find when you are choosing new adjustable weight sets.
From 10 to 50 pounds, it is rugged, and provides a smooth grip for your hand, with a simple handle grip bar. Although it looks simple in design, the quality is there and you are going to find this set will last you for years, no matter where you plan on putting it to use.
Weight Range & Increments
The weight range for this adjustable system goes from 10 up to 50 pounds in weight. A simple dial system allows you to quickly go from 10 pounds, to 20 pounds, or up to 50 pounds, with the twist of a dial.
Once you lock the pin in to place, you are ready to lift, and do not have to worry about a plate slipping out, or other dangers when you are using this adjustable system for a great workout at home.
The weight amounts are adjustable in 10 pound increments, which makes this a device that is better for an intermediate or advanced lifter. Since you are going to go with 10 pound jumps in weight, you have to be sure you are ready to move on to the next weight class, in order for the safest workout, when you are using the dumbbell set.
You can easily twist and lock in the new weight, into place, and go from one exercise to the other, with the slightest of ease. Depending on the workout, and what you are using the weight set for, you can also jump up more than 10 pounds at a time, by twisting the dial more than once, when you are adjusting the weight system, and doing any workout with it.
Ease of Changing Weight
With this Bayou set, you are going to find that the adjustment process, is quite simple for you to do.
All the user has to do to add more weight is twist the dial in a clockwise direction, and it will jump to the next 10 pound increment. From 10 up to 50 pounds, it really is simple to adjust the weight when working out with this weight set.
The weight quickly locks in to place with a pin, and the click you are going to hear is going to inform you that you can lift the weight up safely. This not only makes the system extremely simple for you to use, it also makes it one that is very safe for anyone; the indicator click noise will allow you to listen in to ensure you can lift the weight up safely. If the click is not heard, you simply have to continue to turn the dial, in order to lock it in to place, before you can do the exercise you are going to do.
In terms of grip, it is not as ergonomic as other dumbbell sets. Due to the fact that it is chrome plated, and not hard plastic, it is a bit more rugged in your hand, and it will be more comfortable to use if you have gloves on when you are lifting.
The shorter handle, at about 13 inches, is also shorter than most other adjustable weight sets, which are around 15 inches, so it is not as comfortable in your hand as others are. But, you are going to find that the adjustable set is comparable to any dumbbell you would use in a gym setting.
It will fit in to your hand comfortably, and you can do any exercise when your hands are properly positioned into place. Although not as comfortable as the hard plastic design, it is still fairly comfortable when you have the proper grip in place, when you are using the adjustable weight set to do any exercise that you are going to be doing with it.
Ease of use is one of the great reviews that customers give. Since all it takes is a simple turn of the dial to add weight, it is simple to use, and anyone can figure it out in no time.
One thing certain users do not like, is that it is only increased in increments of 10; so, for novice users, or those wanting to go in smaller weight ranges, it is not as friendly of a design as other dumbbell sets. The all metal design is rugged, and will last, but the counter to this is that the handle is not as smooth without the grip.
Although there are a few mixed reviews, all in all the system is highly rated, and is one that anyone can easily get accustomed to, after they have been using it for some time to workout with.
It is durable, rugged, and built to last. And, although it is not as colorful as other systems, the simple design makes it easy for anyone to learn how to use, and it makes it quite simple for them to learn how to use the dial system, when they are starting out and changing weight amounts during use.
