The Best Dumbbells of 2019

Strengthen your workout game with these options

 
 

1). Best for Beginners: Tone Fitness 20 lb. Hourglass Dumbbell Set
 
 
 
If you’re new to weightlifting, starting with lighter dumbbells will help you perfect form while avoiding injury. The Tone Fitness 20 lb. Hourglass Dumbbell Set comes with three pairs of dumbbells (two, three and five pounds)—the perfect weights for newbies—and a plastic stand to store them on.
 
Owners say that the hourglass shape of the dumbbells makes them comfortable and secure to hold, although their smaller size might not make them a great option for people with large hands. But even if you do eventually graduate to heavier dumbbells, you’ll want to keep this set around for exercises that call for lighter weights, such as some Pilates moves. 
 
2). Fitking HEX Dumbbell Dumbbell / Weight Plate & Rack
 
 
 
Key Features:
Available from: 1 Kg - 40 kg.
Made from biodegradable and non-toxic material.
 
3). Best Neoprene: AmazonBasics Neoprene Dumbbells
 
 
 
Neoprene-coated dumbbells are a favorite for a few reasons. First, the rubbery coating makes them comfortable to hold and easy to grip when your palms become sweaty and slippery (hey, it happens). On top of that, the softer exterior helps protect floors from dents and dings if the weights happen to be dropped. Plus, the colorful dumbbells are a fun way to brighten up a home gym.
 
The AmazonBasics Neoprene Dumbbells come in a variety of weight options, from one- to 20-pounds, giving you the choice of buying one pair or purchasing multiple. We love the fact that the hexagonal shape means that the dumbbells stay in place when you put them on the ground between sets, preventing you from having to chase after runaway weights. 
 
4). Best Adjustable Dumbells: Bowflex SelectTech 560 Dumbbell
 
 
 
Investing in an adjustable dumbbell is a time- and space-saver. The Bowflex SelectTech 560 compact design adjusts from five to 60 pounds with a turn of the handle, meaning that you don’t need to purchase (or make room for) other sets of dumbbells as you progress.
 
Users say that they like the sleek design and soft, rubbery grips. But what’s especially cool about this model is that thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, repetitions, weight lifted and calories burned are tracked on the accompanying Bowflex Connect app. 
 
5). Best Rack Set: XMark’s 500 lb. Premium Hex Dumbbell Set
 
 
 
Serious exercisers will appreciate having a complete dumbbell set in their home gym. A full range of weights also means that everyone in the house—no matter their fitness level—will find a pair of dumbbells that works for them. The XMark model fits the bill with 10 pairs of weights, ranging from five to 50 pounds. This rack measure 46" long so you'll need some space to fit. 
 
The dumbbells are commended for its quality, which are made from cast iron with a rubber casting and a comfortable, chrome-plated handle. When you’re done, store the weights on the included anti-slip rack, which comes in both grey and white colorways. 

 
 

6). Best for Travel: CB Sports Deluxe Travel Dumbbells
 
 
 
Traveling doesn’t have to ruin your fitness regimen. If you don’t want to skip workouts when you’re on the go, the CB Sports Deluxe Travel Dumbbells are essential pieces of fitness gear. Compact, extremely portable, and ultra-easy to transport in your suitcase, these top-rated water dumbbells are perfect for getting in your quick cardio fix while on the road.
 
Additionally, these CB dumbbells boast a flexible weight, since you can fill them with as much water as you want, and top-notch black ABS material that’s guaranteed not to leak.
 
7). Best for Seniors: NuBells Dumbbells Set
 
 
 
The NuBells Dumbbells certainly aren’t your traditional dumbbells! The ergonomic, circular design evenly distributes weight to help avoid stress or injury when lifting, making them a great option for people who are older or recovering from an injury but still want to strength train. People who own the dumbbells say they like the fact that their NuBells don’t place strain on the wrists or shoulders when exercising, and one user said that they even helped mend a case of tennis elbow.
 
The NuBells come in a range of different weights. Their slim profile makes them easy to store, and a rubber coating ensures that they won’t damage your flooring.
 
8). Best for the Pool: TheraBand Aquatic Hand Bar Dumbbell Weight with Padded Grip
 
 
 
Lifting weights in the water may seem silly, but it’s actually an amazing way to build strength if you follow a water-based exercise or physical therapy program. The problem is that traditional weights sink when you release them, but these TheraBand Aquatic Hand Bar Dumbbell weights are made from buoyant material so that they stay afloat. They’re actually intended to be used under the water, and the water’s resistance is what helps strengthen muscles. Reviewers say that although they were surprised by how lightweight the dumbbells were when they first received them, it takes a quite a bit of effort to push them down under and through the water.
 
There are a number of pool-based exercises you can try with these dumbbells, including this floating push-up move: Start by floating on your stomach with the weights submerged and held against your chest. Push down to extend your elbows so that the dumbbells are directly below your chest, then return to starting position.
