Olympic dumbbell handles

#1 Postby vegan_rossco » Tue Oct 29, 2013 11:01 am

So I ordered a couple of decent Olympic dumbbell handles which have finally arrived, I was wondering if anyone knew how much they weigh on average. I've heard olys usually weigh around 5kg but these feel heavier. Oh and I don't have any scales in my house before that's suggested ;)

I think you've misunderstood my question.. And the empty dumbbells are 5 kg..

Only way to know is to weigh them dude. At our work the normal handles weigh more than the thick handles...

I have a pair of them I hardly use anymore. Don't miss the days of trying to balance these on my thighs before kicking them back to do chest press on the bench, parts of screw clamp collars digging in. lol

Managed to find this review on amazon of the same dumbbell bars I have :)
Chewy man benching with dumbbells is such a pain in the ass aha, I sort of do the kickback thing to get them in position too ha
