The Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbell is one of the best of regarding adjustable dumbbells. The functionality, the feel, the looks simply makes them stand out from rest of them. The set of Bayou Fitness Dumbbells consist of a dial system which you can turn on any of the side by a knob to vary weight. If you want something that looks better than Cast iron both by quality and aesthetically then I think chrome is the best option. With Pitch Heavy Black and glossy chrome makes the Bayou Fitness dumbbells outstanding then Old School ones. This dumbbell is preferable to all levels, from beginners to professionals as its weight can be varied from light to heavy. It has a 13 inch long handle having variation of weight from ten to fifty pounds. A standard fifty pound dumbbell is 15.75 inches long and 8 inches wide.Dumbbells are made to be placed on floor quite often so the edges of Bayou Fitness Dumbbells are crafted in such a way that the dumbbells cannot slide when placed on the floor. Or if you don’t want to place them on floor you can even get its stand.
The dial system has nine settings. From the range of 10 to 50 pounds you can choose between nine different sets of weight which matches your desire. With a five pound increment on each setting tells that each plate weighs five pounds. The method of dial system makes variation of weights much easier than using a spin collar method. For ten pounds, you use the dumbbells with no plates attached. For twenty pounds, you go for single plate on each side. For thirty pounds, double plates on every side are required. For forty pounds, add triple plates on every side. For Fifty pounds, add four plates on every side.
The working of lever system is such that when you adjust the knob regarding your required weight, the number of plate is locked onto the dumbbell while leaving the other ones back on tray. The use of tray is necessary while adjusting weights. It takes less than ten seconds to change the weight so I think the dial system in Bayou Fitness dumbbells are pretty fast. Bayou Fitness Dumbbells are preferable to be use on high intensity workouts in which you have to change the wait very quickly with less rest time. Bayou Fitness gives you a DVD with the set of adjustable dumbbells which is supported with twenty different workout routines with 20 different exercises. These are pretty big numbers which consist of both intense and strength training. Bayou Fitness is a trusted company known to sell many health and exercise equipment, DVDs, fitness manual and guides made by certified trainers that makes you to experience one of best quality products.

Final Verdict and Review
When I bought my Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells nearly after six months and be enough to say that I was totally satisfied with my purchase. They are convenient and portable for everyday use. Although if somehow you break the dial they are very harder to fix. Some customers also faced the problem that knob is quite weak after several use also the plates were sticking into the tray. Ten pound increment can be taken in both positive and negative manner. Good for experienced weightlifters is one positive aspect. Increment of too much weight may be a bit harder for beginners is one negative aspect.
To achieve a good balance you have to make sure that lever on both ends of dumbbell is properly fixed. This will lead you towards better form and gaining muscle quickly. This will even help you in much complicated exercises and once you get the correct form it will be just a matter of time to add more and more weight. Heavier weights are required if you are using same set of dumbbells of same weight after every exercise or round. It is because the gains starts to fade if you are using same variation of weight constantly. So to maintain strength and getting improvement try switching on heavier weights one step at a time. With this reason I think why you should go for Bayou Fitness adjustable dumbbells. Despite of all the negative aspects, Bayou Fitness adjustable dumbbells are great space saver, average size, very versatile and durable. They are giving you a need of five fixed dumbbells into one so you can look forward to invest in them. The warranty is limited I agree, but it doesn’t really bother me because I think they can offer me for lifetime. So it is extremely encourage to purchase a pair of these dumbbells once in your life.
