We’re men. We like our women taut, firmed and dressed to the nines, our cars loud and fast, our home theaters capable of spitting out ear-splitting decibels and our workout equipment…well, to be taken seriously.
While sometimes the routine trip to the gym can be fun – especially with all those aforementioned (hopefully single) ladies around – there’s nothing quite like working out those muscles and working off those love handles at home.
Enter Universal’s Power-Pak dumbbell and stand set, offering a powerful combination of performance and space-saving ingenuity for building up that chest and those arms that much more conveniently.
An ideal selection for athletes and weight trainer beginners alike, the Power-Pak set adjusts from four to 45 pounds in five-pound increments, allowing for rapid exchange of exercises.
Fitting into the active guy’s lifestyle, the Power-Pak 445 represents a great space and money saver as well, replacing nine sets or 18 individual dumbbells.
Beyond the intuitive workout guide that’s included…
…the 445 set comes complete with an ergonomically-designed dumbbell stand for neat storage of the ‘bells in addition to a durable thermoplastic rubber handle for a comfortable non-slip grip.

Chest Exercises, including flat-chest presses & incline chest presses; Abdominal Exercises, including ab crunches & reverse crunches; Arm Exercises, including standing curls & overhead triceps…

If that wasn’t enough on its own, the set boasts a smooth weight selection system that makes it very quick and easy to adjust the weights to varying levels.
With these large adjustable dumbbells, users are encouraged to work their stabilizers, one of the main reasons many exercise enthusiasts feel free weights are more beneficial than machines.

Additionally, the 445 package boasts a sturdy, high-quality stand without a large footprint that almost looks “futuristic” with its silver color scheme.
Some Things to Be Aware of!
Some feel that for the price of the Power-Pak 445, the weights could be positioned a bit tighter together with less movement.
Additionally, the metal tube holder piece, at an angle, is a hindrance to some reported users that had limited space; it was recommended that the structure should have been in a straight alignment rather than angled.
Should You Buy?
Are you a budding weightlifter on a budget? Do you consider yourself an intermediate-to-expert level workout aficionado that requires a dumbbell set that won’t take over your home?
Are you a buyer that prefers everything come in one complete package so you don’t find yourself running around trying to collect all the pieces required? If you’ve answered “yes” to at least two of these questions, the Universal Power-Pak 445 is for you.
