Got this set from Woot in late Feb and have really liked the dumbbells.

If you don't plan on going above 50 lbs, these are better than the EXP sets because the Personal Trainers can easily and quickly go up in increments of 5 lbs rather than 10 lbs. With the expandable powerblocks, you have to mess around with adding and removing the chrome adder weights to change increments in 5lbs, which doesn't help when doing drop sets.

The Personal Trainers are basically the same thing as the USA Elite powerblocks, except they are made in China and can only go up to a max of 50lbs. I haven't seen any quality issues with my dumbbells even though they were made outside the U.S.

The only thing I don't like is how confined the handle space is. The Personal Trainers, like the Elite EXP, have wrist guard rails inside the dumbbell handle that are meant to support your wrists. In practice, they actually hurt my wrist a bit because they are so close to the actual handle. I don't have particularly big wrists or hands, but I find the handle space to be a bit confining even for me. I'm still getting used to that.

What do you guys think, this or the SelectTech 552s? I feel like one advantage for these is they're narrower making overhead presses easier.

Powerblocks > bowflex. They actually use power blocks in some professional sports facilities.

Does that include all types? Like this one? Or just the higher end models.

It's usually the expandable types in gyms just because they go up higher in weight or the upgraded models. Bowflex models are super cheap and the plastic pieces can break and drop weights on your face if you don't handle them super gently.

The personal trainers were actually being sold for as low as $199 pre-covid. It was posted several times on SD at that price, including Dec 31 2018 and once again in late 2019.

With that said, you're not going to find a pair of Powerblocks anywhere near that price unless you get a terrific deal on used dumbbells from craigslist or something. Will likely be a while until prices get back to pre-covid.

Given inflation and the spending frenzy, I doubt we'll even see those prices again.

I don't particularly care about getting about 50lbs, but what would be the best Powerblock set that does 50lbs? They have so many different types there's a lot of paralyzation of choice going on.

If you don't plan on going above 50lbs and don't mind the wrist guards that can be a bit confining, get the Personal Trainer set.

If you think you may want to go beyond 50lbs at some point, get a set that has "EXP" in the name. That means the dumbbells are expandable beyond 50lbs, although keep in mind those expansion weight plates cost a lot if money.

And if you want the best quality, quietest adjustable dumbbells, get the Powerblock Pro series - either the Pro 50 (if you don't mind being limited to just 50lbs) or the Pro EXP dumbbells. The Pros are very expensive and hard to find right now, though.

The Sport series is just like the Pro series, but they don't have that fancy rubber coating on the weight plates and don't have that cool all-black look to them. They have Sport 50 and Sport EXP dumbbells.
