Dumbbell bar types: What dumbbells are there?

As with many other sports equipment, there are different versions of dumbbells with their own individual advantages. They differ fundamentally in terms of the material used, the resulting robustness, the compactness and the weight dimensions. Whether made of cast iron, plastic, rubber gripper or plastic gripper, you will definitely find what you are looking for at Bad-Company.

Cast iron dumbbells

These dumbbells come in a classic design and are made of cast iron. They are available in standard size (30/31mm) and, like the other dumbbells, with a star lock. This dumbbell set is available in weights from 10 kg to 100 kg and is suitable for both beginners and professionals. The "classic" impresses with its high robustness and narrow weight plates, so that the dumbbell set is space-saving and durable.

Plastic dumbbells

This dumbbell set consists of a cement mixture coated with plastic, which forms the weight plates. The plastic dumbbells are also available in standard sizes (30/31 mm) and with a star lock. They are available in weights from 10 kg to 40 kg, which is why they are also suitable for amateur weightlifters. The advantage of this dumbbell set is that there is little damage in the event of a fall and that the plastic plates are more cost-effective.

Rubber gripper dumbbells

The rubber gripper dumbbells are available in both standard (30/31 mm) and Olympic sizes (50/51 mm) and are particularly impressive due to their floor protection and resistance to scratches and falls. The weight plates, which are provided with individual handles, consist of an iron core that is coated with a layer of rubber. The rubber gripper dumbbells are suitable for beginners as well as advanced users, as they are available in weights from 10 kg to 100 kg.

Dumbbells made of plastic gripper

The dumbbells made of plastic grippers combine the dumbbells made of rubber grippers with the dumbbells made of plastic. They have weight plates made of a robust plastic coating filled with cement. The weight plates, which are equipped with a carrying handle, enable quiet, floor-friendly and scratch-free training. This dumbbell set is available in standard size (30/31 mm) and in weights from 10 kg to 40 kg.

Which exercises are useful with dumbbells and how are they performed correctly?

Dumbbells should be in every home gym. They are perfect if you want to build up arm muscles sustainably and do strength training in a space-saving way. They allow you to train flexibly and at the same time improve your coordination skills. Of the many possible exercises that are possible with cast dumbbells or dumbbells made of plastic or rubber, we present some of them below.


For this exercise, you sit on a flat bench or stand with your feet hip-width apart. Your shoulders are bent back and remain there throughout the exercise. Then, with an underhand grip and a dumbbell in each hand, your arms are bent simultaneously up to your shoulders. Your elbows are the pivot point of the exercise and remain fixed. Breathe in when bending and breathe out when loosening. This exercise particularly works your biceps.

Shoulder press

You can also do this exercise sitting or standing. Your back is straight and your arms and dumbbells are at almost a right angle next to your body. Try to bring your shoulder blades together a little. Now raise your arms up until they are almost fully extended. Make sure that both arms are raised at the same time and that the set of dumbbells is held as horizontal and parallel as possible. Breathe out when lifting and breathe in again when lowering. This exercise particularly works your triceps and shoulder muscles.


In the starting position, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Now grab two dumbbells with a neutral grip and straighten your back. Your head is also straight and you are looking forward. Your shoulders are slightly back and pulled together. In this exercise, you pull your shoulders and thus the dumbbells up with your arms slightly bent. Breathe in when you pull them up, breathe out when you lower them. This exercise particularly works your shoulder muscles.

Reverse Flys

You are again standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, but this time with your knees slightly bent. Your back remains straight and your lower back forms a slight arch. Your arms are next to your body and almost fully extended, with dumbbells in each hand. Now simultaneously raise both arms almost fully extended to the right and left of your body so that they form a line. The end point is approximately at head height. When you raise them, you breathe out and when you lower them, you breathe in. This exercise particularly works your neck muscles.

Bench press

This exercise is performed lying on a flat bench with your feet in front of or slightly diagonally next to the flat bench. Position your arms with a dumbbell in each hand at chest height at an almost right angle next to your body. Now, similar to the shoulder press, press your arms upwards until they are almost fully extended. Slow execution and a horizontal, parallel position of the weights are particularly important here. During this exercise, you breathe out when lifting and in when lowering. This exercise particularly works your chest muscles.

Other exercises include concentration curls , hammer curls , butterfly or two-arm rowing . In addition to individual exercises, combinations are also possible. For example, you can incorporate dumbbells into your push-ups. When doing push-ups, support yourself on the two Bad Company dumbbells and go from there into the burpee. Once you have mastered this sequence, you can add the shoulder press at the end of the exercise. The dumbbells allow you to do a full-body workout and help you to get physically fit even when you have limited space and time.

Which dumbbells for beginners?

The basic question is what training goals you want to achieve. Do you want to do dumbbell training as part of your overall exercise program or just do strength training? For beginners who don't yet have a complete training room, it's a good idea to buy dumbbell sets that can be disassembled. This saves space. It's also extremely important that you don't overdo it. It's better to start with small weights (up to a maximum of 20 kg). Then you can remove weight plates and train with smaller weight units (2.5 kg per side) depending on the exercise and number of repetitions. Safe handling of dumbbells is important, especially for beginners. For this reason, it's a good idea to buy dumbbells that have a star lock so that the weight plates are securely attached.

What are the differences between spring locks and star locks on barbells?

Bad-Company offers several barbell closure options, including spring closure and star closure. What are the differences between these two closures? What are their advantages and disadvantages? Which closure is better suited for different training needs and levels?

How do you store dumbbell bars correctly?

For optimal storage of dumbbell bars, it is recommended to store them in a dry indoor area to avoid rusting. If the dumbbells have been used outdoors, they should be completely dried before storage. Store the dumbbell bars horizontally to prevent deformation and avoid placing them vertically to prevent bending. Using a dumbbell rack or stand is advisable to store the dumbbell bars properly and prevent them from falling over.

How do you clean dumbbell bars properly?

Regular cleaning is crucial for proper maintenance of dumbbell bars. After each use, they should be wiped down with a clean, dry cloth to remove sweat and moisture. Occasionally, a deeper clean with a mild detergent and a damp cloth can be used to remove more stubborn residue. Do not use harsh chemical cleaners or solvents for cleaning to avoid damaging the coating.
