Top 10 Best Dumbbell Handles
for October 2022

Dumbbells have long been a staple in the fitness world, and thanks to advancements in technology, you can get the same benefits of training with a dumbbell without the inconvenience of storing them. Dumbbell handles, also known as handgrips, are an easy way to exercise your upper body without taking up much space, making them perfect for people who are short on space or who travel often.

Our testing lab has evaluated dumbbells and dumbbell handles for performance, such as how much weight they can handle and how many times they can be adjusted, as well as ease of use, such as how easy they are to adjust and assemble. Our top picks are the Body Solid GHB 500, the Body Solid GHB 550, and the Body Solid GHB 600, all of which can hold up to 500 pounds, making them great options for people looking to train with heavy weights.

Dumbbell handles are tough, so it's important to find a model that's durable, but also comfortable. Our top picks are the Body Solid GHB 550, the Body Solid GHB 600, and the Body Solid GHB 500, all of which come in a variety of colors.
