Hex Dumbbell Sets & Hand Weights
Buying a quality hex dumbbell set is a must have for anyone who wants to seriously improve health, fitness and strength in their home gym. We prefer rubber hex dumbbell sets due to the quality and durability they offer when working out. Hex dumbbell sets come in increments of 1kg and 2.5kg increments once it is over 10kg. We sell rubber hex dumbbells in pairs, either as a set, or whatever weight you need. We also sell hex dumbbell set with racks.
Buy Hex Dumbbells for the Home Gym
Every decent home gym should have a hex dumbbell set. Most home gyms include a bench, barbell and weight plates. For hand weights, we find many customers want to upgrade to rubber hex dumbbells. The main reason is the inconvenience of the spin lock dumbbell plate set which makes a workout inefficient. This is why a fixed hex dumbbell is much more ideal and convenient during training.
If you have ever trained at a commercial gym, then you would have likely used a hex dumbbell. Many of our customers want to replicate the gym environment in their homes. By having a full rubber hex dumbbell set you should also consider storage. A hex dumbbell rack can come either as a vertical stand or as horizontal trays. This keeps your investment clutter free and easy to access during training.
Buying a hex dumbbell set with rack is a specialty of us, and we enjoy providing advice for what your needs are.
Hex Dumbbells vs Round Dumbbells
There are 2 common shapes when it comes to dumbbells; either round or hexagonal dumbbells. There is no right or wrong with either shape, however we believe that the hex dumbbells give you more flexibility and varieties of exercises.
The hex dumbbell will not roll away – giving you more stability during exercises. With the constant change in training styles and techniques, the rubber hex dumbbell is widely used in many fitness courses and systems.
Round dumbbells can be costly if they are the rubber molded style you find in major gyms. But the most frustrating product is the round dumbbell plates. These can be noisy, frustrating to put together, and hard to identify what total weight you are using.
Hex dumbbells are usually fixed via the handle and the dumbbell heads. This allows for quick easy changes, robust usage or dropping (don’t make the mistake in getting poor quality, as this can be dangerous while you train).
When buying dumbbells, you will find that the prices vary mainly because of quality, style and type. We have found that investing in a bit more will help you make any mistakes and save money in the long run. We always recommend in getting better quality hex dumbbell sets.
Do Hex Dumbbells have a Standard Size?
If you are unsure which hex dumbbell weight to choose from we’ll share what the most popular rubber hex dumbbells we suggest when a customer wants to buy hand weights.
Hex dumbbells come in either increments of 1kg, ranging from 1kg to 10kg. Which then become 2.5kg increments from 10kg onwards. An example would be a family that needs a combination of light weights through to heavier weights. So a hex dumbbell set may look something like this.
1kg -10kg then 10 - 25kg and so on with the standard size of 1kg and 2.5kg increments being quite normal. However there have been increments starting in 2.5kg. It may look like this; 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5kg and so on.
For a more customised rubber hex dumbbell set we recommend that you buy only what you need or can lift. The reason is because the hex dumbbells are so good and versatile you can substitute the weight depending on your exercise technique. For example, a 10kg hex dumbbell can easily feel like 20kg if you increase your repetitions over time or slow down the technique (known as negatives).
However if you’d prefer to have a full set of quality hex dumbbells, it is a great investment and will last forever. Don’t forget about the hex dumbbell storage as it will just complete that professional home gym space you’ve always wanted.
