I really don’t understand why so many people think dumbells are dumb. Most probably it has something to do with its name? But I tell you, if you prefer to workout at your own convenience and hate hitting the gym at a fixed hour everyday, there is no better substitute to dumbells. Dumbells can help you no matter whether your end goal is fat loss or muscle building. In this article I will tell you how dumbells can help you achieve a flatter and stronger body in no time.
Now, as a matter of fact, there is a wrong and right way to use dumbells. The method of the using light dumbells and focusing on small muscle groups instead of the larger ones that is suggested online is the wrong approach. The reason why some people are not able to take full advantage of dumbells is that even though they want to have an athlete’s body, they use the dumbells to workout like a bodybuilder, that is, use small weights and target small muscle groups.
1. Using Dumbells for Quick Wright Loss: So you have gained a lot of extra flab and wish to shed them as quickly as possible? That is possible to do with dumbells. However, in order to get the maximum advantage from your dumbell workout, you must ensure that:
a) You are using heavy s
b) You are doing workouts that are not only the most challenging but are also of the highest intensity.
c) You are doing a variety of workouts instead of focusing on just one or two
d) In addition to alternating between different types of workouts, you are also varying the repetitions, rest periods and the weights. Let me give you an example. Let’s say that you are using three types of s: 1, 2 and 3. On the first week, you could alternate between these three weights and keep the resting periods between workouts at a very low level.
Then on the second week, you could increase the rest periods. On the third week, you can go back to doing what you did on the first week. Such a variety in your workout regimen would ensure that you lose your extra pounds quickly and easily.
e) You are targeting the entire body (or more specifically, your big muscles such as chest, back, etc.)
2. Using Dumbells for Muscle Building and Fitness: Using dumbells for fitness is no different than using them for the purpose of weight loss. No matter what your end goal is, you must always ensure that you are using the heaviest of weights, doing the most intense workouts, and focusing on full body workouts (instead of just one or two muscles).
While there is no one workout that suits everybody, this workout strategy has worked for many people and I am sure it would work for you too.
