Lifting at home
So I powerlift in my garage, I have a squat rack that doubles for the bench as well, etc. and have the olympic bars and weights, etc. I have a pull down stack with high and low pulley well. I'm looking at getting a set of powerblocks or selecttech dumbbells to go with this setup. Anybody have experience with both of these. I can find reviews of one or the other but am looking at hearing from somebody who has used both of them to give me the pros and cons as they relate to each other. i do almost exclusively compound lifts. every now and then i'll do some tri pushdowns, etc. but compound is definitely my focal point. Any advice on these adjustable dumbbell setups?

I have IronMaster adjustable and love them. You can get them to go all the way up to 165lb's per Db. Mine go to 120 but will be getting the 165 add on kit soon.

I've worked with Rich and used these and they are top notch.

I was wondering the exact same thing.... I need to start using dumbells on certain lifts.

I would listen to these guys, some day I would like to get a set of these.

Awesome recommendation! I just looked these up on and they get GREAT reviews, better than the selecttech and powerblock. I don't do circuit or speed training either so the 2 min to change the weights is a non issue with me. Now to wait for a used set to show up for sale so i can save 100 or 150 bucks. Thanks for the heads up!
