The Basics Of Dumbells And Dumbbell Workouts


Dumbbells are integral to a long term fitness and personalstrengthening plan. Dumbbells are individual weights thatare best used as part of your overall fitness workout eachday.

A standard but effective dumbbell exercise is generallyconducted as follows. Place one dumbbell in each hand anduse you arms to lift the dumbbells up to shoulder height.Now, lower your arms down so you arms are by your side.Repeat as many times as necessary.

You can also perform exercises for strengthening both arms,by working with one dumbbell and one arm at a time.

Dumbbells and dumbbell weights can be purchased as sets ofpairs or as a complete dumbbell set that offers manydifferent weight increments depending on your currentfitness level and what you fitness goals are in the future.

Adjustable dumbbells can be purchased for use in the home -if you want to do some quick dumbell arm workouts each day- or borrowed at fitness clubs - if you are want to use thedumbbells as part of a great fitness program that involvestreadmills, bikes, bench presses and skipping ropes.

You can usually buy dumbbells weights in 5 poundincrements. This is ideal for people on a long termtraining program because it means that they can purchaseweights that match their strength level as they improvetheir fitness.

Dumbbells and dumbbell weights come in many differentcolors, designs, textures, and materials so you canpurchase dumbbells to suit your own personal style and tomatch the decor of your fitness area at home.

If you want to set up a home display then you shouldprobably opt for chrome or cast iron dumbbells which aresimple, easy to use, and attractive. You can also chooserubber encasing because it will minimize noise and thepotential for floor damage if you accidentally drop adumbbell during your dumbell workouts.

Chrome dumbbells are the most popular type of dumbbells forhome use.

If you are serious about your ongoing fitness program thenyou can also purchase a dumbbell rack for storing yourdumbbell set.

Without a rack, your dumbbells will clutter up your fitnessroom by taking up unnecessary floor space because you canstore your dumbbells vertically or horizontally away fromthe walk through areas.

The type of rack you purchase ultimately depends on thetype of dumbbell set you purchase. Similarly the type ofdumbbell set your purchase depends on your height, weight,body type, and fitness level and your level of strength.
