    Pros:

    • These dumbbells are capable of small increment increases and covers such a wide weight range which allows you to get more potential with your exercises.Powerblock Elite 90
    • The heavier the dumbbell, the bigger the size but these dumbbells are compact and is still smaller than the Bowflex SelectTech 1090’s, and they both go up to 90 lbs.
    • Not limited to the maximum weight these dumbbells go up to, as you can purchase an expansion kit to increase the weight to 130 lbs per hand.
    • Handles has a padded and comfortable grip, this will prevent the handles from digging into your hand and causing you discomfort especially when lifting a heavier weight.
    • There is a color coded chart on each dumbbell which will tell you how heavy each weight is using a easy to read color code system.

     

    Cons:

    • Quite inconvenient if you want to increase the weight by increments of 2.5 or 5 lbs as you’ll have to either add or remove the 2 x 2.5 lb weight from the handles.  Increasing the weight by 10 lb increments is not a problem as this is done my simply moving the selector pin.
    • The design means that there are 4 pillars around your wrist which if you was to accidently drop the dumbbell when lifting, one of the pillars can potentially hit against your wrist in the process.

    Review:

    Powerblock Elite 90 The Powerblock Elite 90 is one of the most versatile adjustable dumbbells, starting all the way from 5 lbs to 90 lbs and being able to increase the weight in small increments allows you to focus on those exercises where a small increase in weight is necessary such as bicep curls. 

    For exercises where you will be using a lighter weight setting it would be really inconvenient to have a dumbbell which is 16 inches long which is why Powerblock has designed this dumbbell so the length will be shorter if the weight is lighter.

    Although the price of the Powerblock Elite 90 is quite expensive but these dumbbells are strong and sturdy and comes with a 10 year home use warranty.  If you’re after dumbbells which have a heavier maximum weight setting then the Ironmaster Adjustable Dumbbells go quite heavy and it can also be expanded.
