What are the cheapest dumbbells?
The cheapest dumbbells will be made with concrete or sand and then coated in a plastic, rubber or neoprene shell. These dumbbells will be the least durable and are generally not recommended by ProductReportCard.com unless used for very light exercise in low weight resistances. Instead, we would suggest considering whether an adjustable dumbbell set might be more cost effective for your needs or even a cast-iron fixed-weight set. Our favorite inexpensive adjustable dumbbell set is the CAP Barbell 40-Pound Set with Dumbbells in Plastic Case, and, in terms of fixed-weight sets, we also like the CAP Barbell Hexagon Solid Gray Dumbbells.
