The BodyMax 36kg 18-in-1 adjustable dumbbell features a foolproof weight-selection system

This is an impressive bit of kit, which looks just as good as it performs. Included in the package are the set of weight plates, the adjustable dumbbell body and a docking station. We tested these out on hardwood flooring and thankfully the station left no marks on the wood. The dumbbell fits easily back into the dock after use, too.

The instructions are clear and easy to follow, so we were ready to lift in no time. A simple click of the buttons on either side of the dumbbell allows you to twist the dial and choose a weight. With 18 different weights to choose from, a single BodyMax 36kg adjustable dumbbell is all you need for an effective full-body workout.

This wide range of weights makes the dumbbell suitable for both beginners and experienced lifters, and the handle – one of the comfiest we’ve tested – is ergonomic and easy to grip.
