I managed to find a single 30 lb rubber dumbbell at walmart the other day and I'm looking for a way to add more weight to my existing 25 lb dumbbell that's iron. I'm looking on amazon right now and they have these for 50$



I don't really want to shell out 50$ for 5 lbs of weight just to make my 25 lb a 30lb. Thinking about strapping a 5lb ankle weight to it, but was wondering if anyone had a decent alternative that doesn't take a lot of money. Thoughts?

just do more reps, or wrap one of those neighborhood fast-walking mom leg weights around your wrist while you're lifting

I'm most likely going to end up doing this.

Just ask the department manager when they get their deliveries and be there early so you can buy the weights you need. Basically every reseller is doing this

I have in stock alerts on the store I bought it from but I'm about 2 and a half hours away from there. I was visiting family and stopped by a Wal-Mart and found one of them and literally no other weights. Guess I could give this a shot.

No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

UMM HOW i word this... ok u take 20 lbs no lifting for 30lb if guy, so divide 2 u dont sit, u get 10 but for guy it no 30, so 20 would be for guy if u werent a girl ?

Magnets (if they even make them) are a very dangerous idea.

best thing to do is duct tape.
