Best Gifts for Men – Tossing heavy things around

My boyfriends likes to say,

I like to pick up heavy things and put them down again.

He’s referring to playing with his weights and he loves any chance he gets to use them.  There will always be the exception, but men generally like new gadgets and a set of SelectTec dumbbells may just be the toy he needs to have fun and get in shape this year.  I must admit, I love them too and find they make workouts a lot more fun.  Each dumbbell adjusts from 5 to 52.5 lbs., allowing you to build strength, loose weight and not have individual dumbbells rolling all over your living room or garage.

Include a new Workout Program

Of course a workout program that promotes the regular use of these weights is a smart choice to include with this gift.  I wish Bowflex and Beachbody would team up so you could get the weights and program all at once, but for some reason this has not yet happened.  So for the time being, you can find the SelecTec’s on Amazon and sometimes used on Craigslist.

I would suggest something like P90x or Body Beast to get the best use of this weight set.

For the ladies I can’t recommend Chalean Extreme enough, this is my favorite program so far.  I went from a rather squishy waist to being able to see my abs.  I lost 6″ and went from 25% to 21% body fat.


Love to hear your thoughts!
