PowerBlock Elite 90 Review
The PowerBlock Elite 90 are some of the funkiest looking yet best designed dumbbells on the market, and tend to be the number one choice for people looking to purchase adjustable dumbbells, even beating out the popular Bowflex SelectTech’s range. They are adjustable from 5 to 90 pounds in 5-pound increments, in effect doing the job of 28 pairs of traditional dumbbells.

Easy to Adjust
One of the most important aspects of dumbbells are how easy they are to adjust. Thankfully, this is one of the P90’s fortes. All you have to do is move the weight selector pin into the appropriate slot and you’re done. This is identical to how weight stacks at the gym work.
The dumbbells can be adjusted from 5 to 90 pounds in 5-pound increments, effectively doing the job of 28 pairs of traditional dumbbells. Technically, this means that you have 2,565 pounds of free weights at your disposal, which explains why adjustable dumbbells are so popular these days. However, if you purchase the 8-11 Elite Big Block kit then you can expand to 130 lbs per hand, if needed.
Using the PowerBlock Elite 90 is more enjoyable than other dumbbell sets, which is pretty much all down to the comfortable padded grip. While this makes it unlikely that you will get blisters, perhaps even better is that due to the way in which the P90 has been designed having a weak wrist is not as much of any issue.
The PowerBlock Elite 90 is backed by a 10-year warranty.
