Eat Real Food, Not Too Much, Mostly Plants

Strong People are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in general. - Mark Rippetoe

I do not do much dumbbell training, but they are often programmed in Crossfit workouts and certainly add an important component for bodybuilding.  If you had asked me 10 years ago, I would have argued that anything less than pro style dumbbells from 10 - 110 pounds in 5 pound increments was unacceptable.  If you had asked me 4 years ago, I would have said pair of hex 35's and 50's is perfect for women's and men's standard weight.  Over the past 1.5 years of training from my home gym, I am changing my tune to argue that 15-20-25-30-35-40# dumbbells is more than sufficient.  To that end it is time to pare down my dumbbells and fill in some gaps.

10# - Unbranded Cast Iron Keep
15# - Sports Authority Neoprene Keep
20# - Need
25# - Need
27.5# - Rep Fitness Rubber Head - sell if I can find others
30# - Rep Fitness Rubber Handle - Keep
35# - Unbranded Poly Head - Keep
40# - Need
50# - Rep Fitness Rubber Head - sold
65# - Rep Fitness Rubber Head - sold

I listed the 50 and 65# pairs and had 4 inquiries in 12 hours on 12/21/2021 and am planning on meeting a guy 12/22/2021 to transact both pairs for $300.

I reached out to CR via Craigslist to purchase 25# and 40# Rep Fitness Rubber Handle for $150, but have not heard back.
