What are rubber dumbbells, and are they the best dumbbells to buy?

Are you in search of the perfect dumbbells? You may well be looking at rubber dumbbell sets, and with good reason! But why is rubber so great, and which type of rubber dumbbell is best for you? In this guide, we'll explore the world of rubber dumbbells and help you find the right match for your needs, preferences and goals.

What are rubber dumbbells?

Rubber dumbbells have a rubber surface encasing solid metal heads.

They come in various different head shapes: round, flat-edged and hexagonal rubber Hex dumbbells.

Hex dumbbells are the brightly coloured dumbbells you’ll often see in group exercise studios: colour-coded by weight and fully encased in rubber for a sweat-resistant finish.

At Physical, most of our rubber dumbbells have flattened edges.

For home exercisers, another great option is our Adjustable Rubber Dumbbell set, where you can stack multiple different weight plates onto one bar – one piece of kit, many different weights!

What are the benefits of rubber dumbbells? 

Rubber dumbbells are a great choice whether you’re a home exerciser or a commercial gym. Affordable but high-quality, the rubber coating of these dumbbells offers a comfortable grip during workouts. It also prevents damage to your workout space. Say goodbye to scuff marks and scratches: rubber dumbbells are designed to keep your floors in pristine condition.

How much do rubber dumbbells and rubber dumbbell sets weigh?

Rubber dumbbells come in a wide range of weights and sizes, ranging from 1kg to 50kg per dumbbell. Whatever your needs and fitness level, Physical has the rubber dumbbell set for you!
