The York 20k Cast Iron Dumbbell Set has been designed to be the next step up from bodyweight exercises, as well as offer a variety of new exercises to anyone who has only used a barbell before.
Whenever you are looking to buy a new set of dumbbells one of the most important things to look for is quality weight plates. The weight plate is what will be in contact with the floor when putting down or dropping the weight, so they need to be solid with a good quality coating.
Benefits of the York 20kg Cast Iron Dumbbell set
[one_half]As the name suggests, this 20kg dumbbell set by York is supplied with a full set of cast iron weight plates.
Using dumbbells with weight plates will take longer to setup before different exercises compared to fixed weight dumbbells if you need to change the weight. But the benefits of weight plate versus fixed weight dumbbells far outweigh the negatives.
The York 20kg Cast Iron Dumbbell Set is supplied with weight plates that go up to 2.5kg each at their heaviest. These small weight plates will save you a lot more room compared to having several different fixed weight dumbbell sets to cover the different weights.
This also means you can adjust the weight on each dumbbell to the nearest 0.5kg, where most fixed weight dumbbell sets have 1kg as their minimum difference between dumbbells.[/one_half]

Locking collar and grip design
Taking a look at the locking collar, this cast iron dumbbell set features a stainless steel spinlock. Thanks to the threading along each end of the dumbbell being metal and not plastic, this ensures a smoother spinning action when putting the collars on and taking them off.
Being able to adjust the weight quicker will help you have a more effective workout, and even fit in a couple of extra sets with the time saved.
The grip is another area that is important to consider when choosing a new set of dumbbells. The York Cast Iron Dumbbell set has a rubber grip section wrapped around the main dumbbell bars to make the grip softer and prevent any damage to your hands.
Having this slightly thicker grip will also help build up your forearm strength and grip quicker in any curling or rowing exercises.
