In this video, I demonstrate a necessary hard drop test using 100lb IronMaster Adjustable Dumbbells. Sometimes, you just have to drop weights. The setup includes the base 75lb IronMaster Adjustable Dumbbells, a 15lb Heavy Handles add-on, long screws, and additional weights purchased locally to achieve a total weight of 100lbs. I have been HAMMERING these dumbbells for over a year.

This clip was taken from this full workout video:

 

Check out my real-life experience with IronMaster Adjustable Dumbbells, where I hit a personal record that I’m really proud of. In this video, I’m showing how these dumbbells have been a game-changer for me, allowing me to gradually increase my lifting game until I was able to lift and then drop (out of necessity) 100-pound weights without ANY damage. Achieving this at 49 proves that it’s never too late to smash your goals with the right equipment.

Back in my 20s, I was all about heavy lifting, but life got in the way, and it wasn’t until my 40s, especially during the COVID lockdown, that I got back into strength training seriously. The IronMaster dumbbells were a key part of this comeback. They let me work up through the weights in my own time, in my own space, without needing a garage full of different weights. Whether I’m pushing past 80 pounds or targeting the 110s, these dumbbells have shown they’re tough, versatile, and perfect for anyone looking to lift heavy at home. They’ve been central to hitting new personal bests and staying motivated, showing that muscle really does have memory.

Working with Mike has been a game-changer. From day one, it was clear that I had stumbled upon a gem in the world of personal training. First and foremost, Mike has a remarkable setup at his home for one-on-one training. It's the perfect blend of a comfortable, private space and a fully-equipped gym, creating an ideal environment for focused workouts. The moment I stepped in, I felt at ease and motivated to push my limits. What sets Mike apart is his ability to craft tailored, bespoke workout plans that are thoughtful and effective. Regardless of whether you're a beginner taking your first steps in the world of weightlifting or someone who's been exercising for years, he has a knack for designing programs that cater to your unique needs and goals. Every session is a personalized journey towards achieving your fitness goals. It's clear that Mike has a deep understanding of physiology and exercise science, and he uses that knowledge to optimize each session. But it's not just about the workouts. Mike is an exceptional motivator and mentor. His passion for fitness is contagious - he listens intently, offers guidance with patience, and ensures that you not only perform exercises correctly but also understand the 'why' behind them. Thanks to Mike, I've not only regained my passion for lifting weights, but I also have achieved outstanding results in a very short amount of time. I feel stronger, more explosive, and even faster, all thanks to his expertise and support. If you're searching for a personal trainer who can provide a top-notch training experience in a welcoming and tailored setting, look no further than Mike. Working with him has been a fantastic experience, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone on their fitness journey.

I started with MB Wellness in early March 2023. The passion Michael brings to every session is second to none, whether it is a cardio day, stretch/yoga day, or strength day he is always encouraging me and talking through some "roadblocks" I may have had the previous week. If you are a 40+ male and looking to get back in shape in a private one-one setting, Michael is your man. He will guide you physically and mentally getting you to your goals and beyond.

Mike has been amazing to work with. Someone to give advice and keep me accountable without ever talking down to me or making me feel bad about my choices or decisions. He has helped me with Diet and Exercise, understands my goals and my situation, helps me through at my pace. He is invested in me doing better. Give him a shot.

I have known Michael for over 30 years. I was so happy when I seen that he was doing this Health And Wellness program because he is in very good shape and he is very smart and knowledgeable about what he’s telling people to do to lose weight and eat healthy after just one month of working with Michael at 215 pounds. I have already lost 5 pounds and I am very motivated to reach my goal which is 185 just talking to him about what I was eating and doing wrong what’s so helpful for me whether was in person or over the phone he gives you plenty of information and details to work with while visiting his home. His family and him were very welcoming and warm to me as always I couldn’t of asked for a better person to help me with my journey , and anybody that needs help with their health and wellness. I would highly recommend Michael to be somebody to work with.
