Amazon’s best-selling dumbbells will help you get stronger at home — and they’re not crazy expensive

To get stronger and gain muscle, you have to exercise. More specifically, you have to strength train. If you prefer to do your workouts at home, you can, of course, use your own body weight to do things like push-ups and squats. However, adding resistance, like a simple set of dumbbells, can really kick up the intensity.

The problem is that a lot of dumbbells are affordable yet incredibly expensive to ship. It makes sense — that’s a heavy package! However, Amazon’s best-selling dumbbells start at $11 for a 1-pound pair, and with a Prime membership, they cost absolutely nothing to ship. In fact, you can get them within two days and start your strength training ASAP.

The Portzon Neoprene Dumbbells are anti-slip and comfortable to grip. Plus, they have a hexagonal shape, so they won’t roll away when you set them down. You can get a set of two weights in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 or 15 pounds and choose between a few colors for each set.

More than 17,000 Amazon shoppers give the Portzon Neoprene Dumbbells a five-star rating and say that they’re great for at-home workouts.

“I measured these on a scale, and the weight is accurate,” wrote one Amazon reviewer who purchased the 8-pound set. “The hex design on the ends keeps them from rolling when put down. The grip allows me to securely hold the dumbbells while doing squats or curls. I am very happy with this purchase and how these hand weights are helping me to meet my fitness goals.”

“I read many of the reviews here before purchasing, and I can honestly say these dumbbells are just about perfect,” wrote another reviewer. “One reviewer claimed the grip was a bit small for a man. He must have been referring to the circumference of the grip and not its length. My man hands are not huge, so these are perfect, but I can see where a more beefy guy might find the circumference of the grip just a bit small.”

If you’ve been looking for a new challenge in your exercise routine, try a set of these dumbbells. They’re easy to use and small enough that you can store them away in a closet, unlike larger pieces of exercise equipment.
