The Choice of Dumbbells

At present, the common dumbbells on the market can be roughly divided into two categories: fixed weight dumbbells and adjustable dumbbells.

In the choice of dumbbells, it is recommended to choose adjustable dumbbells. A fixed weight dumbbell is a relatively simple and convenient type of dumbbell. You only need to choose a suitable weight during training. But it has a disadvantage: you need to buy dumbbells of different weights to meet different fitness requirements.

If the exercise space at home is limited, then the adjustable dumbbell may be more suitable for you, it can be used as a dumbbell of multiple weights.

Adjustable dumbbells consist of a metal barbell bar (usually with grooves for gripping), a weight plate, and a fixed buckle.

It is best to choose two pairs of dumbbells, one heavy and one light. Heavy dumbbells train large muscle groups, chest, back, legs, etc. Light dumbbells train small muscle groups, arms, shoulders, calves, etc.


Weight Selection

For novice trainers, you may be envious of those veterans' intuition in choosing loads, but this intuition is an experience that requires years of training. No one is born to know the weight, you start to take the dumbbell curl test, just try it! Use dumbbell curls to find the weight that suits you.

4. The standard weight of dumbbells on the market does not match the actual weight (including the weight of the dumbbell bar). Usually plus or minus 2 kg is normal, so ask the owner of the actual dumbbell weight before choosing to buy.

Action essentials:

STEP 1 Put your hands down on your side, keep slightly bent, hold the dumbbell palms forward, and keep your shoulders down and stable!

STEP 2 Exhale, bend the forearm, contract the biceps, and slowly raise the dumbbell. Raise until the dumbbells reach shoulder height.

STEP 3 Pause for a while, then let the dumbbells return to the initial position

This action is simple and not easy to get injured. First choose a pair of dumbbells according to your own feelings and perform curls 8~12 times

If you feel very relaxed after finishing, then the weight is too light for you, you can increase it appropriately, and then repeat again.

If you start shaking hands less than 3 times and are weak, then the weight is too heavy for you, so reduce it appropriately and repeat it again.

After completing the corresponding number of times, you feel very tired, but can continue after a short rest, then this weight is very suitable for you!
