    Anyone use power block adjustable dumbbells?

    was thinking of getting a set of power block adjustable dumbbells but it seems like they would be a bit awkward to use. anyone use them if so how do you like them?

    I know Kelkel got a set for a good price a few years back. He loves them.

    I got the base set, they are absolutely fantastic. They look awkward but there is plenty of room for your hands and wrists inside of the enclosure where you grasp the handle, works for every move no issue.

    I have a set of the originals I believe.
    They go up to 85lbs?
    With the awkward to use extension pack they go up to 120lbs? I believe.

    For the money they are excellent.
    I am sure the newer versions are an improvement.

    There are some movements that you can't do with them.
    (DB pullovers for example.)

    Ahhh, so there are some moves you can't do woops...

    Also huge shout out to pullovers, I do them 3x a week but I never see anyone else doing them, I don't think they are very popular.
