Default Is there a dumbbell shortage?

Is there a dumbbell shortage? I went into Scheels and they were nearly sold out so I checked Dicks (yea yea, I know they suck) and they were sold out too.

WTF? Did EVERYONE need a new home gym?

Yes they went as quickly as the toilet paper but haven't been replenished. (Probably because a lot of that shit comes from China)

It is getting better but for a while the 299.00 adjustable dumbbells were listed for 1000 o 1500 online. Just some assholes buying them out and running them up. Kind of like the .22 shortage a few years ago.

I noticed that. I had some Bowflex adjustable dumbbells. I sold them for $600 a couple weeks ago because I never use them. They’re just too bulky for me. They were gone within an hour..

All exercise equipment is wiped out and slow to resupply. Everyone is late to the game building home gyms but the good news is that discounts will be great next year when this shit is all on Craigslist. Hell maybe even in August when the extra unemployment stops

Same at 2 Academy's I went to. Fortunately I built the home gym a long time ago. I thought they just decided to stop carrying them or something... the whole section looks cleared out.
