While I'm a fan of adjustable dumbbells for home workouts, they're a big investment. Some premium sets can set you back hundreds of dollars, which is a significant ask, even if they can last you several years. 

But if you're just getting into resistance training, you might be after something more affordable. Fixed-load weights can still be pricey, but you can pick up several great dumbbells right now at Dick's Sporting Goods for less than $100. 

Some are sold as individual dumbbells, like the Fitness Gear Cast 20 lbs Hex Dumbbell that's down to $29.99 which are great for increasing the intensity of bodyweight exercises like squats, or you can pick two to make a pair for less than $60. 

Meanwhile, the ZIVA 20 lbs Hexagon RPU Steel Dumbbells are less than $100 and the hexagonal design makes they won't roll away when you put them down between exercises or while doing moves like renegade rows. 

Fortunately, these aren't your only options. Dick's has a lot of dumbbells and other weights on sale right now, so you can pick up some muscle-building weights without breaking the bank while the sale's still on.
