Hi, I'm Denise Druce, a fitness instructor in Salt Lake City, Utah. Let's talk about how to use switch weights or switch dumbbells. So what I have here is one set of switch dumbbells and I would like to talk about the pros and cons of using this kind of weight lifting apparatus. So the advantages of switch dumbbells are that you can have just these two dumbbells and you have the option to go from 10 pounds up to 50 pounds each. So they take up a lot less space and of course, they cost a lot less money than buying a full set of dumbbells. The disadvantages of switch weights are that they are a little more noisy. They are a little more awkward so if you are holding a ten pound dumbbell, typically that's a lot smaller. With this as you'll see it's a little bit more awkward and maybe bulky. They are also potentially dangerous. You have to be really careful that when you are switching the weight, that you lock it in exactly on the number that you want so that it doesn't fall and you don't hurt yourself. Also it takes a little more time to set up in between exercises, but let me show you how to use switch dumbbells. So right now they are both set at 50 pounds. So in order to change that down to 10, we simply lift the pin and slide it down to ten, just like that and ten we'll pick up the weight and you can see that it doesn't bring in any of the plates with it and so you could do your exercise just like that with ten pounds. And then to increase the weight, slide it to 20, 30, 40 or if you are feeling really wrong, go all the way to 50. I'm Denise Druce. For more fitness tips, please check out my website.
