A dumbbell set is one of the easiest –and cheapest– places to start when working out. Simple free weight equipment with a lot of versatility. You can use them to warm up before a major workout; you can use them as additional weight while doing an aerobic workout; and you can use them in various strength training exercises, such as curls, presses, extensions, and more. While commonly used for bicep strengthening, a dumbbell set can also be used for leg, back, and ab exercises. See, versatility does come in small packages.
Dumbbells to the Rescue
A common problem with workouts is that after you’ve been doing the same exercises for a period of time, your body gets used to them so it won’t progress past a certain point. In order to keep training your body effectively, you have to switch up your workout routine. Because you can do so much with a dumbbell set, this provides the perfect opportunity to challenge your body. A simple variation in technique can be all it takes to work different muscles. You have more freedom by using a dumbbell set than with any other weight lifting equipment. Cheap and easy can be a good thing after all!
After you purchase your first dumbbell set, you’re probably going to want to buy a dumbbell rack to store it on. We have several of each to choose from, so what are you waiting for? Today is the day to be motivated!
Dumbbell Set Safety
As with any weight lifting equipment, be sure to pay attention to your form, use the proper dumbbell weight for your lifting ability, and lift safely and carefully. Just because dumbbells are a small piece of weight lifting equipment doesn’t mean you can’t seriously injure yourself while using them. You’d be surprised how easy it is to strain a muscle (which can take days or longer to recover from depending on the severity of the injury) by using improper techniques with a dumbbell set.
