Which dumbbell weight should beginners use?
Thanks to the incredible array of dumbbells weights to choose from, these pieces of kit are ideal for encouraging beginners to get involved with weightlifting. Dumbbells can be picked up in weights as light as 1-kilogram or ad hefty as 20-kilograms, perfect to use both alongside cardio or as an exercise in its own right. If you're looking to build up your arms, shoulders and chest, dumbbells can provide even amateurs with gradual yet effective results if they opt for a set of various dumbbell weights. Once you've warmed up your muscles, you can begin testing out which weight you should start with. Begin by testing out the lightest dumbbell set you've acquired with a simple bicep curl.
In general, starting with a lighter set and working your way up to heavier set is encouraged by fitness professionals. While you may be tempted to opt for the heavier set straightaway to build muscle mass, a lighter pair of dumbbells can be just as useful for stabilising the muscle in order to support your joints and tendons for a more effective and comfortable workout. For women, 2-5-kilogram sets of dumbbells tend to be a good place to start whilst men can tackle weights between 5-10-kilogram weights.
Can you gain muscle from dumbbell-only workouts?
In order to really build up arm and shoulder muscle, a common misconception is that you need to use barbells (big and heavy barbells to be specific!) but this isn't the case! A lot of lean muscle can be easily gained using nothing more than a pair or set of dumbbells. Lightweight to medium-weighted dumbbells in particular can allow you to tone muscles and even gain muscle mass in a compact area that doesn't require frequent visits to the gym or a generous floor space. As such, dumbbells are ideal for anyone living in a small apartment or cosy abode that wants to stay in shape and even fill out their physique with some extra muscle.
If you're looking to build muscle, sticking with one set pair of weighted dumbbells offers little room for progress, so opting for an adjustable dumbbell set lets your progress at a pace that suits you. Adjustable dumbbells are available in numerous weighted increments and are easy to change by altering the lever, dial or pin mechanism. Swapping between different plates is therefore a cinch with a pair of adjustable dumbbells. While dumbbells and dumbbell sets are fantastic for effectively building mass, they can also prove to be handy tools for adding resistance and additional weight to aerobic exercises.
For an even more intense strength-training workout, get your hands on a set of kettlebells to use alongside your dumbbells. These superb pieces of kit can be used just like a standard dumbbell for weight training or can be used as a nifty accessory to enhance cardio fitness. If used correctly, you can burn up to 600 calories in just half an hour with a kettlebell, perfect if you're limited on time but still want to get in an intense workout!
By multi-tasking your muscle use, you can burn fat and tone areas all your over body without spending hours stuck on a monotonous treadmill at the gym - what's not to like?
