About Us

When you think about buying a set of cheap adjustable dumbbells, there are a handful on the market to choose from.

For this article, we’ll use cheap in reference to price only, not quality. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at a few of the best, cheap dumbbell sets.

40 Pound Dumbbell Set

One final set of cheap adjustable dumbbells would be the Cap Barbell 40-Pound Dumbbell Set. The one caveat with this set is that it’s not “adjustable” in terms of a pin type system, or a dial type system. It’s a smaller traditional dumbbell set. Since this is more traditional dumbbell set, the weights are adjusted by unscrewing the nut that keeps the weights on the bar, adding or removing weight, then screwing the nut back on.

They’re a 40 pound set, so they’re an ideal starter set for someone just getting into working out. The reason being is that there is enough weight to build a base as far as getting used to working out, and learning exercises, and since they’re pretty inexpensive, they won’t set you back much.

Ultimately the adjustable dumbbell set you choose will come down to your fitness/strength level and budget.
