Black Friday weights deals are trickling in and here’s why I think some equipment really can change the way you workout forever. When lockdown hit last year I suddenly realized how essential weights are when trying to maintain a solid fitness level and build muscle at the same time.

The best adjustable dumbbells had never been on my wish list. This was until I found the joy in working out at home and realized that investing in a set of dumbbells was the most space-efficient option for this - something that’s essential when you live in a city apartment.

My favorite kind of workouts revolve around resistance training. So when Black Friday hit and I could no longer use things like the lateral pulldown bar, the smith machine, or the free weights at the gym, I decided to invest in my own weights and it was one of the best workout decisions I’ve made.

There are lots of different weights on sale right now including my favorite, which is the but the SKONYON Adjustable Dumbbells Set (opens in new tab). I like to be able to move up weight as I move through sets in a workout therefore, this pair ticked all of my boxes, especially as I didn’t have the space to accommodate my own rack of weights. 

Check out the adjustable dumbbells in full below:

The SKONYON adjustable dumbbells completely changed my view on home workouts and are something I continue to use in my resistance training.

I’m able to ensure that both my lower and upper body are being worked when I use them as I have incorporated them into various exercises. A few of my favorite dumbbell moves are bicep curls, butterfly raises, and back rows for my arms. I also use this set to do some Romanian deadlifts, squats, and weighted step-ups for my legs. I never find that my resistance training is limited with this set as I can move up or down weight as I please and if anything I have come to discover just how varied dumbbell exercises can be. 

If you don’t think dumbbells suit your style of weighted workouts then our round-up of Black Friday weights deals also has excellent savings on kettlebell weights. The kettlebell is really great if you wish to perform more functional movements in your training. The shape of the bell offers a handle to grip, which provides greater stability for a wide range of movements such as the kettlebell swing. If you are reluctant to spend money on more than one kettlebell this 3-Piece HDPE Kettlebell could be just the ticket.
