Beginner Tools: Adjustable Dumbbell Sets
Adjustable sets are totally bad ass for beginners and intermediate exercisers alike. You can start with the light plates, and add on as you go. The set above is a great choice for most beginner women: 5- 20lbs per dumbbell. It comes with a case, stores easily and is totally affordable at only about $40 a set.
When it comes to dumbbells, you don’t need to go fancy: this is a simple set with one big perk: adjustable sets allow you to avoid buying several different sets over time. It’s also easier to boost your difficult as you see fit, whenever you’re ready.
No home gym is complete without weights! If you don’t already have them, GET THEM! Said with love, of course. :)

CHEAP TIP: Craigslist and other sites are awesome for finding old workout equipment for very cheap. Check often, avoid fabrics (bugs) unless new and sealed (think mats), and always disinfect before using it to get sweaty.
