    Has anyone used these?

    I'm going to be going abroad for 6 months and am thinking about buying these to do some exercises (mostly shoulder rehab, light weights). Are they shit?

    I thought that they were going to be water filled kettlebells when I looked them up.

    Never used them, but the website says that the dumbells go up to 16lbs, so unless your a woman I'd say that they are completely useless.

    The ankle weights go up to 8lb, so they might be ok for some excercises, but the plastic material looks uncomfortable.

    I'd be using them primarily for shoulder rehab, so the 16 lbs is fine; I was wondering if anyone used them and if they leak, fall apart, etc...

    dude, don't waste your money on crap like that, buy cables @ bands instead.

    I know Ironmind has Famous Cables or something along thoses lines, and you get get physical thearpy tubing at your local drug store.

    I agree. At least you can vary your resistance this way. Saves on the ghey factor too.

    I've got cables, but there are some therapy routines that require dumbells... in any case I guess no one here has ever used them

    in my initial post I stated that I was traveling and, thus, dont want to lug around dumbells. I think I should just buy water jugs or cans of soup to use.

    Sorry bud, I missed that part! If you're travelling I would highly recommend you use cables!

    almost everything physical thearpy movment you can do with dumbbells you can mimic with the cable/tubing.

    Or you can just fill water in milk jugs....

    Just find big rocks while on your travels and use them instead
