The Power of Dumbbells: Building Strength and Confidence in Every Lift

There is no denying the fact that dumbbells are one of the best and most used gym equipment. Apart from other strength training equipment that target specific muscle sets, the dumbbells target the entire body. For example, recumbent bikes target the glutes, shins, calves, hamstrings and quads. Similarly, Ellipticals target the back, triceps, biceps etc whereas dumbbells are a full-body workout investment.

According to the Physical Activity Guidelines, an adult should do 2 strength training sessions a week. So, if you want to do it right with dumbbells, read on!

5 Reasons to Use Dumbbells to Build Strength and Confidence

1. Versatile Exercise Equipment

Dumbbells are one of the most versatile exercise equipment that you will come across. From low-intensity to high-intensity, from beginners to professionals – everyone can benefit from dumbbell exercises.

Remember, don’t overdo it! When you are in the beginner phase, go for the ones with less weight. These rubbers coated dumbbells from the Fitness Depot are optimum for everyone. You can easily choose any weight from 2kg up to 20 kg. Moreover, you can select from just a single one or a pair!

Some of the exercises that you can perform with dumbbells include:

  • Bicep Curls

Fun Fact: The first dumbbells were actually church bells whose clappers were removed. These bells were made ‘dumb’. Thus, the name dumbbells.

2. Increase Endurance Levels

Doing the right dumbbell exercises helps you increase the endurance level of your body. When you consistently challenge the muscles in your body by working out with dumbbells, your stamina also increases. This is why when you initially start exercising, you might not be able to do more than 1-2 minutes. If you are consistent, you will see that the time duration of exercising also increases.

The type of dumbbell rod also plays a significant role. You can opt for either hollow rods or solid ones – it all depends on your choice. Check out the best-selling hollow rods and solid rods at Fitness Depot.

Surprisingly, another benefit of using dumbbells is that it reduces the risk of injury in everyday life. Some people might find it contrary to what they have always believed – that there is a greater chance of getting injured while using dumbbells.
