The 30kg vinyl dumbbell set by Gorilla Sports provides a large number of weight plates in lighter weights (2.5kg and 1.25kg) to help promote gradual but consistent gains in strength over the course of your workouts.
If you are considering buying a new set of dumbbells, you will usually have to make 3 main decisions. These are the size and number of weight plates you need, what type to buy (fixed weight, weight plates, adjustable) and the material used for the weight plates.
This 30kg vinyl dumbbell set equates to 15kg of weight per dumbbell, broken down into 8 of the 2.5kg plates, and 4 of the 1.25kg plates.
The inner weight plate discs have been coated with a plastic casing to help prevent scratches to the plates, or damage to the floor if dropped.
In terms of the actual bar design, the diameter is much closer to the ‘standard’ size rather than the Olympic size, making it much easier to get a better grip on the bar when performing exercises such as dumbbell rows.
Knurling has also been added to help prevent the bar from slipping.[divider]

Benefits of dumbbell workouts
One of the great benefits of dumbbells is their versatility. While many exercises using a barbell require a rack or much larger power cage / smith machine to perform the exercise with any amount of weight, dumbbells require much less space and can be used with just a weights bench.
If you are going to be lifting weights from home, you probably won’t have the same availability of a spotter that you would if you were lifting at a commercial gym.
The ability to simply drop the dumbbells away from you when lifting if you can’t complete a rep is a safety benefit that you simply don’t have using a barbell.
Another benefit of training with dumbbells is it allows you to train through a greater range of motion than barbells on some exercises.
While this 30kg vinyl dumbbell set can be used for a wide range of exercises on its own, when combined with a multi position weights bench you can plan a variety of workouts for both upper and lower body muscle groups.
The following is a list of just a few of the exercises that are possible:
- Dumbbell squats
- Bicep curls
- Overhead tricep extensions
- Dumbbell kickbacks
- Incline flys
- Dumbbell bench press
- Hammer curls
- Side lateral raises
- Dumbbell shoulder press
- Forearm curls
