What are the benefits of using neoprene dumbbells?
Neoprene coated dumbbells are far softer than standard cast iron dumbbells, making them more comfortable to use. They also provide a better grip – even when your hands are sweaty. The material also helps to prevent the dumbbells from rolling when placed on the ground.
What are the benefits of using dumbbells?
The more variety in your workout, the bigger the benefit. It’s for this reason that dumbbells are such a popular piece of equipment. They can be incorporated into everyday exercises and used in conjunction with other gym equipment to give yourself a more balanced workout.
As well as targeting different muscle groups, free weight exercises also help to raise your heart rate and improve your cardiovascular health. There are loads of different exercises you can do with dumbbells and countless tutorials available online. Here are just a few examples.
Hammer Curls (biceps): Stand upright and hold the dumbbells down by your sides. Ensure your palms are turned inwards so that the dumbbells are facing your body. Curl the dumbbells up slowly whilst keeping your elbows down by your sides. Repeat.
Flat Chest Presses (chest): Lying flat on a bench or mat, hold the dumbbells above your chest with your arms extended. Lower the dumbbells to your chest and then back to the starting position. Start with a few repetitions and slowly build up over time.
Lateral Raises (shoulders): Hold the dumbbells down by your sides with your knees slightly bent and feet shoulder width apart. Bend your elbows slightly and raise the dumbbells out to your sides so that your arms are parallel to the floor. Repeat.
Half Squats (legs): Hold the dumbbells down by your sides and stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart. Keeping your back flat, bend from your knees until your thighs are almost parallel to the ground. Return to the upright position and repeat.
