Comments from reviewers:

“The bar weighs 5 pounds, you get 15 pounds of assorted weight for each of the two bars, total 40 pounds, this allows you to set up from 5 to 20 pound dual dumbbells or a single up to 35 pounds.

Plan on adding a few more 5 pounder or 10 pounders to it, is all – they are available separately so no big deal. I’ve set these bars up with 65 pounds of weights with no problem using 10 pounders.

The bars are good quality and have rubber washers to lock the weights in place.”
