So I loaded up my 16 inch adjustable DB handles to 115 lbs each side, which left the spinlock pretty right at the end of the the handle.
I finish my set of 9 on bench press, and I gently place it on the ground, and the spinlock mechanism on both dumbbells just snapped wide open and the plates fall off onto the ground. Luckily the weights were already on the floor, or it could have been not good and stuff.
In case I'm being ambigious, these are what I am referring to, they literally broke into pieces on both DB's.
I had wanted to buy some 18 inch handles, but now I am scared the spinlocks are gonna explode whenever I load them near the edge, so I thinking about investing in a more pricey DB option.
So the only choices I can see are oly handles or some kind of adjustable, am I missing another viable option? I don't have space for every DB I would need, and I need at least 150 lb DB's.
- The ironmasters look good, but the 165 lb attachment I would need makes them 2 feet long, which probably makes the lift uncomfy
- Would Olympic handles be a good option, or do the 25's you need make the lift suck?
- any possible options I'm not thinking of?
