I don't know if these are expandable to heavier weights or not. If not, I'm going to jump in before any Bowflex haters chime in. I have both the Bowflex and PowerBlock dumbbells. My Bowflex go up to 52.5 lb and my power blocks go up to 90 lb. It's true that the power blocks are way more durable but the Bowflex are way faster and easier and I find myself using those for any weight covered by the Bowflex. I only use my PowerBlocks for weights above 52.5 lb.

Long story short, if these are limited to 50 lb max I would strongly consider the Bowflex. Don't listen to all the haters, if you aren't rough with them I think you'll enjoy using them more than the PowerBlocks.

Not sure how much Bowflex cost in comparison though.

Before I had a chance to try both I believed all the haters but now I appreciate the ease with which the Bowflex can be adjusted.

Powerblocks are more comfortable to rest on your thighs before starting a set of something like DB shoulder press.

i agree and i have the exact same setup.

The ease of changing the bowflex makes me always choose them over the powerblocks for <50 lbs. >50 lbs with the powerblocks i tend to move in increments of 10lbs and just adjust my reps so i dont have to mess with pulling out the small weights inside.

I got rid of my powerblocks and picked up a set of the bowflex 1090s for the reasons stated above. I have the bowflex 552s and 1090s, and prefer the 1090s over the powerblocks. I wasn't sure that I'd be comfortable with the girth of the 1090s, but I still prefer them over what over the feeling of my hands being imprisoned in the powerblocks.

my 2 cents these weights are awful. dont feel like real weights at all. i guess you could get used to them?

i would only buy them if you have no space and for some reason cant spend a few bucks a month on a gym.

Wanted the 90# set but my arms couldn't lift them. Guess I'll stick with 50s

Agreed, bowflex are faster at switching weights. More fragile than powerblocks but if you take good care of them, they'll last quite some time.

If one is the type that drops their phone on a regular basis, bowflex probably isn't for you lol.

If all you plan to do is curl these, these are pretty good. For flat bench pressing, you're gonna outgrow these quick. And these don't expand pass 50lb's, maybe if you get creative, could get them to 60lb's

Shocked to see so many people with a preference for Bowflex over PowerBlocks. Usually it seems to be the other way around. Glad to see there are some people who can think for themselves and aren't lemmings.
