I love my PowerBooks but agree, 50lbs isn't enough. I bought the classic 50s off CL which expand to 70. I bought the expansion set and now wish I could go to 90.

Decent deal if you are looking for a pair of 50lb adjustable dumbbells. But 'they' say that you would quickly outgrow them and will feel the need to expand to 70-lb or even 90-lb. But, IMO, 50-lb would be enough if you are a beginner and haven't lifted before.

I got the PowerBlock Sport 9.0 set from Sears a while back along withe the expansion kits to make it 90-lb per pair. Net cost to me was about $380 after coupons, cash back, SYW points etc. I've been training with them for about 2 months now and I still struggling with 30 lbs. Granted I am a completely- out-of-shape weakling, but I don't see myself reaching 50-lb anytime soon. And that 70-lb & 90-lb kits are in no danger of getting disturbed by me - they do fill out the empty space on the bottom half of the core very nicely and are an excellent conversation starter Smilie

I used to have these and also the newer Powerblocks. Just FYI, they make a rattling sound when you use them.

I'm trying to decide between these and the bowflex 552's, any thoughts about which is better?

For the "not enough weight" crowd check out german volume training if you want to switch it up or find yourself in a crappy hotel gym-- intense workouts with lower weights (60% of 1RM)

I've had the elite 90 set for a few months and these are definitely worth it. Super good quality, made in the USA, easy to adjust. A lot better than the bow flex dumbbells.

I have these, only my version have some sort of plastic/rubber coating that prevents clanking or rattling.

If you are some sort of heavy lifting body builder, they may be too light.

I am pretty fit and lean. I only use the full weight for bench pressing and shrugs.... they are too light for my shrugs, but I make it work. If the weight is too light for you, just move slowly through the motion and squeeze at the peaks of the movement. Also, I make sure that my muscles are fried at the end of each set....I can't do another rep..... then, I quickly do a few more with much less resistance using the straps.
If you aren't a super serious gym rat and you have some decent genetics, my workout routine is definitely going to produce quick results. (not that I invented it)

For a home setup, you get a way to have many weight possibilities in a very compact space.

I have a high quality adjustable bench, suspension straps hanging from the ceiling, the powerblocks and an elliptical...it's an amazingly efficient system.

I do believe that the powerblocks are the best adjustable dumbells.

as already stated, the bow flex are wider making certain exercises harder for keeping your form. I have the elite 70s and are one of the best investments I ever made.

Powerblocks are better than the bowflex, they secure the weight a little better and they're shorter.

I wound up with the 552s (cheaper) and have no big complaint even noting the above. They've held together fine and I can do all my exercises. But if we were talking the 90lb versions length would be a major issue.
