I purchased the Bowflex dumbbells a few months ago to use with my p90X workouts. I have to say, the weights are very useful. They are adjustable and range from 5 pounds to 52.5 pounds, so I will never need to buy dumbbells again… Continue reading
By Lori – Summary: With gas prices on the rise should commuting by bicycle be a consideration?
