Dumbbells also known as hand weights are free weights that can be used individually or in pairs for certain types of training, for example strength and conditioning. They help you build overall muscular strength and are brilliant at targeting different muscle groups.

Dumbbells can be used for a number of exercises and workouts, but are mainly used alone or with a bench. Whichever muscle group you are targeting, there are numerous exercise options for you to reach your goals. You can perform a number of workouts using them on their own and with the addition of a bench, the number only increases further.

How can dumbbells help you to achieve your goals?

Lifting dumbbells is key to building upper body strength as they work closely with the natural movements of your joints and muscles. A good set of dumbbells will last years and can be used in a wide variety of exercises.

What weight dumbbells should I use you ask? Well, this varies on what type of exercise you are doing and how much you can already lift. Always use a weight you are comfortable with, improve your form and keep everything smooth. It’s not always about the volume of weight your lifting.

You can perform exercises such as bench presses and lying flys, which target your chest, triceps and shoulders.
