Bought one for my son. He's crazy and obsessed with his Xbox so I got him one of these. I installed it on his doorstep and I was afraid that he might just ignore it. As I observed, the first week he tried it, he was having struggles lifting himself up, though it really is fun to watch what stress it gave him and that disappointment and stress gave him strength and it become motivation. On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th week, he was able to do several reps and a couple of sets which made myself proud big time. All houses should get one of these.
I purchased this set for my 28 year old son. Prior to purchasing we checked out weights at sporting goods stores, used sporting goods stores and craigslist and found some high quality, very expensive weights and some not-so-great, very overpriced weights. This is a very good weight set for the price. The bar is solid (not 2 pieces to be assembled, like some I saw). The 1" plates are coated, which is a nice touch, as they won't rust on my floors. I saw several reviews with people thinking it didn't contain the full weight. It does-- add it up. My son is a moderate lifter, 6' 1", 190 pounds and it is both sturdy enough and contains enough weights for what he wants (strength, not bulk). I found this set via an online shopping search (which I did not do initially thinking that the shipping cost for weights would be very expensive). This particular set was on sale for ** at a sporting goods store located 2 hours a way, or for $128, including free shipping, on overstock. Did I want to make a 4 hour round trip? Nope. The overstock price is a fair price and the weights arrived two days after I placed the order. It was well-packaged and arrived in excellent condition. The only reason I did not give the quality an excellent rating is because I know there are better weight sets out there. But you won't get them for anywhere near this price. I highly recommend.
Functional Strength enthusiast will have you looking great but, mad broke. Don't pay $2.75/lb for "authentic" Russian Kettlebells. Just be a discriminating shopper. I don't buy things because they are cheap or on sale. I only buy quality. I wasn't disappointed. You WILL NOT be disappointed. My friend has a set of "authentic" Kettlebells that set him back over $2,000. He gripped my set and looked perplexed. "You got these on...Overstock?". Yep! The only difference he could tell was the weight is in lbs. If you are getting into the 80 + lbs weight range. I can't say, but the construction of these is excellent, they have a wide handle which is critical for developing grip strength, and the coating doesn't peel. I've had mine over 4 months. Great product.
