Dumb bells

Anyone know where to buy them at a not retarded price? I went to Academy to get some but they want upwards of $30 EACH.

Adjustable would be best and probably cheaper too...and with enough weights to have at least 25 lbs and up to 40 lbs on each dumb bell. Anyone know where I can get a deal?

If you actually get DB's from Academy or other big box stores like them, make sure you measure them before you buy them, they don't always spec out to what they say they are. In the DB world, they are cheap for a reason, go with USA/Troy/Ivanko, you'll find those in the specialized fitness stores.

For adjustable DB's, go with Power Blocks, much more bang for the buck.

Just do a location search on their site to get some locally.

You can score them off of craigslist for pretty good prices.

What Geor said, or just stop by a house with a garage sale. I don't think I've ever been to a garage sale and not be able to find some dumb bells.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
