There is no better way to begin the dumbbell experience than with the adjustable Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells. These dumbbells have been one of the top-selling dumbbells since their release back in 2013. It is perfect for the ultimate strength training because of its adjustable weight level.
The 552’s offer a reasonably wide weight range. You start from as little as 5 lbs to as much as 52.5 lbs (per dumbbell). There are 15 different weight settings. What’s nice about the SelectTech 552’s is that you can adjust weight in 2.5 lb increments for the first 25 lbs (once you get to 25 lbs, it moves up in 5 lb increments).
For most people, increasing weight in more significant increments (like 5 or 10 lbs at a time) is too difficult for your muscles to do. So, you struggle with keeping good form and can’t complete your reps, which means you don’t build strength.
Fortunately, because the SelectTech 552’s can adjust in such small increments, you can increase weight at a more steady pace. For instance, this allows you to keep perfect form, get your full rep range, and gain strength faster and easier.
