Best dumbbell set for home gym India 3Best dumbbell set for home gym India 4

Final Verdict: PVC plates are not durable by nature, and if you forcefully place them on the ground or knock them over with time the sand or the material within will start to spill over.

KORE has come up with a flexible set of PVC weight plate and dumbbell system that I am most fond of. And at my home gym I use a similar system just instead of PVC weights I use cast iron weight plates.

KORE PVC dumbbell set for home gym India starts from 4kg weight and goes upto 26kgs. I would suggest you get the highest weight variant available. You can always adjust the weight as you can lift and as per exercises. So you are not stuck with the weight.

But alternatively you can start with the dumbbell weight that you are comfortable with and later just add more weight plates.

Pros:

  • Extremely flexible weight management system.
  • Common dumbbell rod so you can fix weight plates as you seem fit.
  • Also comes with skipping rope, gloves and carry bag.

Cons:

  • Cement or sand filled PVC plates are never known for their durability.

The grip is great to hold with grooves for a grip. I have several of them in my local gym. They have a whole set and a dumbbell rack to go with it.

The ends of the dumbbell set is rubberised so if accidents ever happen your floor will be saved.

This is what I did for myself. I bought some thin looking 5kg, 2.5kg and 2 kg weight plates. Got myself a good strong dumbbell rod and I am good to go. I can choose many weight variants and can adjust my dumbbell from 4kg each to 15kg each.

Since all can be disassembled, the space required to store them is pretty low.

Also it is very low cost!

I bought them locally so the costs are even lower than online.

And none of the weight plates are PVC, all are cast iron plate so they will last a long time.

If you are on a budget and want the best of both worlds then I strongly suggest that you to buy iron plates to create your own dumbbell set for home gym

Dumbbell set for home in India buying guide

First point, how much weight do you need? If you are taking a dumbbell just for jogging, aerobic exercises then you do not need more than 10 kg weight per dumbbell. On the other hand if you are looking to at some serious mass on your biceps, or want to go heavy squats or bench press at home then you should get as much as heavy dumbbells you can pick up.

Second point, the material used? 

Do you absolutely have to have steel and Chrome material? Are you can be careful and use PVC dumbbells. Chrome dumbbells are very costly, where PVC dumbbells are very low cost.

And lastly how much space do you have, can you afford to get dumbbells of different weights or you have only space left enough for a single piece. If you have a dumbbell rack and have lots of space then you can go for many dumbbell sets of different weights.

Exercises to do with dumbbell set at Home gym India

Floor Press (If you do not have a bench)

Overhead press

Dumbbell clean and press

Dumbbell snatch

Bicep Curl

Lunges

Squats

I do not recommend doing shrugs, as they tend to turn our shoulder inwards.

Depending on your diet all these exercise can make you bulk or lose weight.

Other accessories to Consider

A weight bench: If you are into doing more chest workouts such as bench press then you you need a bench. With dumbbell sets you can move better with a bench and it is also safer. If the weight is too much or you can not continue then you can just throw the dumbbell on the mat.

Gym Mat: Speaking of which no matter if you have a steel dumbbell set or a PVC dumbbell set, if you are going to throw your dumbbells on the floor, both the floor and your dumbbell will get damage. Better get a gym mat.

Gym Gloves: Not all dumbbells come with soft grip, sometimes the palms hurt too so you will need a gym gloves.

Protein Powder: Not required unless you have some serious goal to reach.

Conclusion

I would recommend getting dumbbells before getting a bar or squat rack. With dumbbells you can start with the workouts listed above. And dumbbells comes with lots of variety and workout freedom also.
