At first glance, a dumbbell is just a dumbbell: a big heavy thing with a grip in the middle so you can pick it up and put it down again. But the best adjustable dumbbells are sleek, ergonomically-designed fitness equipment designed to last forever. Some of them, like the cast-iron old York spinlock models, are undisputed classics. But every now and then, a gamechanger comes along. 

The Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells are rated our top pair of dumbbells thanks to their impressive durability and innovative locking system, making them ridiculously easy to use and quick to change weights. And right now, you can save $150 at Best Buy, which is offering the Bowflex SelectTech 552 for just $399.99. Check out the deal in full below, and for more low prices on dumbbells take a look at our dedicated Black Friday weights deals page.

The dumbbells' innovative weight selection dial means it's goodbye to faffing around with cumbersome iron plates and spinlocks. Simply place the handle into the weights in the stand, adjust the dial, and the desired weights will lock in place.  

With 15 different weight settings, this dumbbell set can be adjusted between 5 and 52.5 lbs. It's still on the pricier end for a dumbbell set, but this purchase can take you through never having lifted before to being the most experienced bodybuilder out there. There's a weight in that metric to suit every home fitness fan. 

As well as a compact design (no dumbbell towers or loose plates taking up space) and a durable construction, the Bowflex model also gives you access to the Bowflex app, which is full of ideas for exercises with personalised coaching and tracking software. Want to get started right away? Here's our list of ways to maximise dumbbell workouts
