I have been a long time fan of Bowflex and their awesome workout products! I was so excited when they asked me to join the Summer Strong challenge which included a pair of SelectTech 552 Dumbbells!
I admit, I have been having a hard time balancing all of the running I have been doing with my strength training and cross training. It’s been hard because I work so much (blog and 9-5) and I really only have a limited amount of time to workout. Usually that time is during my lunch hour, and if I have a client meeting or an event during that time, that’s it!
Knowing all of this I decided to join the 30 day challenge because I think that even with my insane schedule, I can find 5 minutes to make this challenge happen! The 30-day challenge was developed byBowflex Fitness Advisor Tom Holland. You guys already know how much I love that dude! Check out how easy it is, you can join in or start your own challenge to become #summerstrong.
SelectTech 552 Dumbbells
I first learned about these weights when I attended a Bowflex event last year. I was drooling over these weights because it saves the clutter of millions of sizes of weights by putting them all on one adjustable rack. I don’t know if I will ever get to lifting 52.5 pounds but it is nice to have the option! When I am in the gym I use different weights for different exercises for example, I’d use 2 15lb dumbbells for my squats with weights but I’ll use a single 25lb dumbbell for my plie squats. The options are really endless!
I did a quick video review so you can see first hand how they work. Check it out!
