Rated 2 out of 5Â by Taylorson NOT 40 lbs.
I purchased these hoping I could get 20 lbs in each hand. The weights add up to 35 total and the bars are less than a pound each so that's really only 36 lbs.
The grips are nice but the 5 lbs weighs look huge and clunky. They should suffice if you are looking for a cheap alternate to expensive weights and 15 lbs in each hand is sufficient.
However, I should have purchased a different set. Thanks though Kohl's for the fast shipping!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bronzechica77 It was defective
Well I received my weights and two of them were defective. They were broken so the sand was falling all over the place. I now have to ship it all back, then wait another 5-7 to get a replacement.

I bought this set for my son. He is 39 and works out everyday. He is most pleased with the materials used in the making of this set.
