Here are the five dumbbells (or sets of dumbbells) that didn’t make the cut.
First off…I’m no crazy and extreme feminist, but I am a little offended that when things are proclaimed as “for her,” they have to be pink. So, strike one, Everlast. These dumbbells are round, meaning that they roll. This can make for a messy workout. Strike two, Everlast. And strike three? They’re made out of slippery plastic. If you are a sweater, you’ll know why that’s a strike.
This may be the oddest reason I have ever had for putting something on the “worst” list, but it’s true. These dumbbells STINK. Literally. For whatever reason, the materials that make up these dumbbells smell extremely strong. This does not make for a pleasant workout, kids.
This may seem like a standard dumbbell, but for that price, you don’t get the kind of quality you should. That’s all it comes down to.
First off, these are not Apex brand—they are a brand I’ve never heard of. Next, the materials are cheap and not worth the cost. Case closed.
According to reviews, the “adjustable” factor in these dumbbells isn’t nearly as simple as it seems. The equipment gets stuck and is unreliable. To avoid dangerous situations (just imagine one of the weights falling off and hitting your toe—ouch!), avoid this disaster.
