These Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells are on sale on Amazon right now!
Working out from the comfort of your own spare room, garage, basement, living room or, heck, bedroom corner is way nicer than hauling yourself to the gym during the frigid winter season. While getting a few pieces of equipment can be a pricey chunk of change, Black Friday is the time to get some essentials at a huge discount — and, let’s be honest, that’s money down the drain anyway if you’re not using your gym membership.

Right now, we've got our eye on two great picks for the home gym. Bowflex’s adjustable dumbbells sets, which are sold as a pair or single, are up to $200 off. Pro tip: You can buy two for the same price as one.
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells – $349 ($200 off; originally $549.99)
Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Adjustable Dumbbell – $349 ($50 off; originally $399.99)
If you don’t have a ton of room to work out or store equipment, adjustable dumbbells make a ton of sense since you don’t need a separate pair under the bed each time you need to increase (or, uh, decrease) training weight.
The 552 set comes in its own holders, so the edges don’t scrape up the (landlord’s) floor when they’re at rest, or when you set them down a bit too heavily. Super-easy selection dials mean you can easily adjust the weights between 5 lbs. and 52.5 lbs, with increments of 2.5 lbs. at first and increasing to around 5 lbs. for most of the higher-weighted settings.
If you already have one and want a second, you can also buy it as a singleton for the same price as the pair: The 1090 adjustable dumbbell is currently $50 off, putting it at about $350.
Like all fitness equipment these days, you can sign up for a subscription on the companion JRNY app for on-demand workouts and classes if you want a little strength training guidance.
