Today I decided to present a brief guide on how to use weights as wisely as possible when exercising.

For starters lets see why they are good and what we can improve through exercises with dumbbells:

  • better motor abilities (strength, speed and coordination)
  • functional abilities
  • quality connective tissue (tendons and ligaments)
  • blood volume, blood flow and muscle volume
  • better functioning of the cardiac nervous system
  • improved metabolism
  • better immunity
  • recovery after injury
  • appetite

Now let’s see what you can reduce through exercises with dumbbells:

  • subcutaneous fat
  • stress

To achieve the above mentioned, it is necessary to adhere to these basic rules:

  • make the movements technically correct
  • breathe properly
  • control the movements in each stage
  • seek advice from experts
A few additional tips:
  • start your workout by activating the large muscles
  • develop your body evenly (without forcing certain muscles)
  • while exercising be mentally present and focus on the exercises
  • training should be a minimum of 1 hour and 30 minutes after the main meal
  • train with a partner
  • if you do not feel good, skip the workout that day

I gave a number of tips on how to exercise with dumbbells, however I did not ask you whether you have them. If you don’t, then the first thing you should do before you start to read this, is to go out and make your purchase.

With a small investment you can get a great set of dumbbells such as the Gymbit brand. Gymbit set of weights are a basic but important fitness requisite for efficient exercising with or without a bench.
