If you are thinking about taking up weight training, or looking for a replacement for a set of dumbbells for using at home either when you don’t have time to get to the gym, then the Bodymax Deluxe 40kg Rubber dumbbell kit is a product worth thinking about.
Because each of the weight plates has been coated in a thick rubber, they make hardly any noise if they bump into each other when performing dumbbell bench presses or dumbbell flys, and you don’t have to worry so much about them damaging the floor if you are using them indoors.
Grip design on the Bodymax Deluxe 40kg Dumbbell Kit
One of the most important design features to look for when choosing a set of dumbbells is the grip. Grip thickness and material are two areas that can affect certain exercises such as dumbbell curls.
This is particularly true if your grip hasn’t been built up and you try to perform dumbbell curls with dumbbells that have a very thick bar. You will often end up working more forearm muscle than bicep.
The handle on the Bodymax Deluxe 40kg dumbbells is thin enough to get a good grip of even for lifters with smaller hands, and the rubber material the bar section is wrapped in prevents the dumbbell from slipping in your hand if it gets wet.
As a note, 40kg is the weight across the entire dumbbell kit and not for each individual dumbbell. If you are a more experienced lifter and looking for a heavier set of dumbbells then the Bodymax 32.5kg Selectabell dumbbells could be more suitable, as they go up to a much heavier weight per dumbbell.
Safety and exercises
The metal spinlocks that are provided with this dumbbell kit will also tighten to the weight plates securely even when fully loaded and prevent the plates from slipping off the dumbbells and causing injury.
While you can still perform a great range of exercises with just the Bodymax Deluxe 40kg Dumbbell Kit, such as standing dumbbell curls, concentration curls, single overhead tricep extensions, two handed overhead tricep extensions and standing dumbbell shoulder presses, if you were to combine these with a simple weight bench and barbell you would have everything you need for a basic home gym.
